"[O]ne of the most popular 3-D movies..."
"[W]ith Vincent Price on fine form as a mutilated, murderous maniac..."
"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 OLDIES.com:
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.
- When theatrically re-issued, "House of Wax" received an MPAA GP rating.
- Filmed in Technicolor and Stereophonic sound.
- Rated BBFC PG by the British Board of Film Classification.
- Andre de Toth had one eye while directing the film and was unable to enjoy the groundbreaking 3-D effects.
