House of Wax (1953)

"Excellent"

House of Wax (1953) Review


One of the great horror classics, House of Wax gives us the inimitable Vincent Price as the owner of the titular House of Wax and its gruesome Chamber of Horrors... only how does he get his subjects to look so real? Originally in 3D, this is still a lot of fun in regular old 2D at home. Plus it's low-budget antics are surprisingly effective, creating a truly memorable film.
