Great Vincent Price thriller with all the appropriate ingredients that are expected from a movie with him. Nice guys turns bad and wants revenge.

House of Wax is a unique film for the 50s and this is one time I'm reviewing a remake no not the 2005 one but the one in 1953 that was a remake of the 1933 movie Mystery of the Wax Museum but the one I saw was the 1953 one it stars Vincent Price as Henry Jarrod who runs a wax museum he treats all the wax figures as if they were real people he give a few people a tour and his partner comes in to te... read more

"Classic horror with Vincent Price as the owner of a wax museum who will stop at nothing to save it from closure, even to the point of murder. Dated now but brimming with colour and you can see the obvious moments where the 50's 3D came into effect. Still has plenty of atmospheres and look out for Charles Bronson in an early appearance as Price's henchman. "

" Horror in 3-D and in a wax-museum that made Vincent Price a horror movie star and his best moment is taken from the silent "The Phantom of the Opera" when he reveals his "true" face. Fun to see Charles Bronson as a mute angry helping right hand and the make-up work is good. More forgettable are the main heroes who are boring and the story itself doesn't surprise much anymore and was old even in 1953 as it was a remake of "The Mystery of the Wax Museum" from decades earlier. "

Moviewatcher122's 2017 Horrorfest (18 movies items)

"October 31 "Once in his lifetime, every artist feels the hand of God, and creates something that comes alive." By the time my birthday (aka Halloween) came, I had realized that I hadn't watched anything with Vincent Price this month. I wasn't going to let this be the first horrorfest without Vincent Price, so by the time I got home after celebrating my birthday I chose House of Wax. Price is great as always here, but what really had me interested was the concept itself. The whole wax museum "
