||Synopsis: Professor Henry Jarrod is a true artist whose wax sculptures are lifelike. He specializes in historical tableau's such a Marie Antoinette or Joan of Arc. His business partner, Matthew Burke, needs some of his investment returned to him and pushes Jarrod to have more lurid exposes like a chamber of horrors. When Jarrod refuses, Burke set the place alight destroying all of his beautiful work in the hope of claiming the insurance. Jarrod is believed to have died in the fire but he unexpectedly reappears some 18 months later when he opens a new exhibit. This time, his displays focus on the macabre but he has yet to reproduce his most cherished work, Marie Antoinette. When he meets his new assistant's beautiful friend, Sue Allen, he knows he's found the perfect model - only unbeknown to anyone, he has a very particular way of making his wax creations.

House of Wax was one of the few films made in 3D which was a huge
success. This may have more to do with the fact that it had a good,
strong story and great acting and did not rely solely upon it's 3D
The late great Vincent Price is Henry Jarrod, a sweet and dedicated
artist who creates lifelike mannequins for a wax museum. His statues -
depicting everyone from Marie Antoinette & Joan of Arc to John Wilkes
Booth - are loved by Henry as much as if they were his own children.
When he objects to creating more horrific sculptures to attract more
paying customers, his partner sets the museum on fire, hoping to
collect a tidy sum in insurance money. Henry supposedly perishes in the
flames, trying in vain to rescue his beloved wax friends in a scene
which is truly heartbreaking. Some time later, Henry reappears,
wheelchair bound and just a tad bitter. He has opened a new wax museum
which features realistic scenes of murder and horror, many of them
taken from current headlines. Unfortunately, some of them are just a
little TOO realistic: one looks like Henry's ex-partner, who was found
hanging in an elevator shaft. Was it really a suicide, or something
more sinister? Joan of Arc bears a striking resemblance to Cathy Gray,
a young girl who has gone missing from her room. And Cathy's friend Sue
looks exactly like the lost Marie Antoinette, the pride and joy of
Henry's former exhibit. Soon, a horribly scarred monster is chasing Sue
through the foggy night time streets. Can the police, and Sue's
artistic young suitor, solve the mystery in time? Or will Sue wind up
as yet another display in the House of Wax?
This is a wonderful, creepy scare-fest with great sets, beautiful
colors and strong performances. Vincent Price as Henry Jarrod is both
lovable and horrifying as the kind man driven mad. Charles Bronson, in
a very early role, is super freaky as Henry's mute and morbid
assistant. Carolyn Jones (in her pre-Morticia Addams days) is blond,
pretty Cathy, the squeaky opportunist with the heart of gold. Phyllis
Kirk is the sensible Sue, a slightly uptight but genuinely believable
victim. The scene where she must run through the deserted, fog-soaked
streets is very, convincingly creepy. When Sue actually stops long
enough to remove her noisy and cumbersome high heeled shoes, which give
away her every step on the cobblestone road, I very nearly applauded.
The 3D effects are an added bonus to an already wonderfully fun movie -
watch for the classic paddle ball scene!
This is one of Price's best starring role films. It is everything that
a good horror film should be - funny without being ridiculous, scary
without the gore and fantastical without being far fetched. 10 stars!!!
Don't miss it!
