"...Great fun..."
USA Today - 05/03/2005
"[O]ne of the most popular 3-D movies..."

"[W]ith Vincent Price on fine form as a mutilated, murderous maniac..."
New York Times - 10/04/2013
"Unlike many of the hastily assembled 3-D projects that followed it, HOUSE OF WAX was carefully designed to take maximum advantage of the medium's unusual properties. The film employs a full range of imaginative shock effects..."

Description by

In the wicked performance that crowned him the movie's master of the macabre. Vincent Price plays a renowned wax sculptor plunged into madness when an arsonist destroys his life's work. Unable to use his flame-scarred hands, he devises a new - and murderous - way of restocking his House of Wax.

The sweet dread and sheer fun of this creepy classic, co-starring Phyllis Kirk, Carolyn Jones and Charles Bronson and directed by Andre de Toth, had its roots in a Warner Bros. chiller from 20 years before: Mystery of the Wax Museum, starring Lionel Atwill as the wax-wielding madman and Fay Wray as a potential victim. Directed by Michael Curtiz and shot in a chillingly effective early two-color Technicolor process, it and its spooky remake offer you a delicious double-dip in a paraffin bath of terror.
