The original selling point for House of Wax was the 3D technology and stereophonic sound, not to mention the completely unnatural color scheme (not a complaint), but the film’s legacy remains in Vincent Price’s tortured, hammy performance. Come for can-can dancers sticking their legs and rumps directly into the camera, stay for Price’s burn victim makeup and stalking the night for corpses. I... read more

"Re-watch - Oct. 23rd No October Horrorfest is ever complete without at least one Vincent Price film, so when I saw my local theatre was screening House of Wax I was all in. And then I found out it'd be in 3-D and there was no way I'd miss it for anything. Turns out the 3-D technology actually works with modern "Real 3D" glasses, and so the film wound up being quite a treat. I had a blast with it all over again, and this time found the moments where it's showing off the 3-D aspects to be endeari"

“The original selling point for House of Wax was the 3D technology and stereophonic sound, not to mention the completely unnatural color scheme (not a complaint), but the film’s legacy remains in Vincent Price’s tortured, hammy performance. Come for can-can dancers sticking their legs and rumps directly into the camera, stay for Price’s burn victim makeup and stalking the night for corpses. It’s that kind of delightfully trashy movie.   The plot of this thing feels ripped straight from Tales of the Crypt: gentle artist creates lifelike wax figures while his rich investor wants him to drop the stately, gentile artistry for lurid compositions. An argument ensues, the artist and his creations get caught in a fire, then we flash forward to find the rich investor killed by a badly sca” read more
