Product Description

In the wicked performance that crowned him the movie's master of the macabre, Vincent Price plays a renowned wax sculptor plunged into madness when an arsonist destroys his life's work. Unable to use his flame-scarred hands, he devises a new - and murderous - way of restocking his House of Wax.

I mananged to see a version of "House of Wax" on Turner Classic Movies and I thought that it was a great horror movie. Not being a big fan of horror films, I can't compare to other ones of that time, but this one was great. It stars horror movie legend Vincent Price and a young Charles Bronson who is credited as Charles Buchinsky. Having been to wax museums in the past, I can relate to the fact that after seeing the was figures for so long, you could begin to believe that all of the people around you who are not moving are actually made of wax, something that was briefly mentioned in the movie. A big problem with the movie was that it was made in 3D during its first release. This could create a problem for the present viewings because some things are pointless. They made things for the movie just so people can see the 3D effect. For example, a three minute sequence of women dancing, throwing their legs in the air. When it was made, it was cool seeing the legs come out of the screen, but while I was watching it, it was pretty much pointless.
The movie begins with Vincent Price as Professor Henry Jarrod. He takes pride in his wax figures which he often refers to as his friends. They speak to him, and he understands them well, and how they want to be made. In a way to make more money, an investor burns up the museum and flees the sight leaving Jarrod for dead. A couple of years later, people begin to disappear, kidnapped in the night. This happens at the same time that Jarrod, who is now in a wheelchair, wants to reopen his museum, with new figures that resemble some of the people that disappeared. He claims that he uses pictures of the missing people in the paper as a muse for the figures, but a women named Sue knows better.

Format: DVD
"House of Wax" is a remake of "Mysteries of the Wax Museum" - both films are featured on this flipper disc from Warner Brothers. The plots of each film center around a gifted sculptor who, after suffering a terrible deception at the hands of his business associate, becomes psychotic and thereafter dips human subjects in wax to make his mannequins. "House of Wax" has three advantages over its predicessor; first - it was shot in Technicolor (not 2-tone Technicolor), second - it was shot in 3-D (then a relatively new gimmick) and third - it features goul, Vincent Price as the mad sculptor.
There's no kind way of saying this: The transfers on both movies are AN ABSOLUTE HORROR! "House of Wax" is plagued by faded colors, out of focus images, color bleeding, weak and/or undistinguished black and contrast levels and an incredible amount of film grain that makes the entire image very gritty on the eyes. Flesh tones are extremely inconsistent, appearing -for the most part - a overly pinkish mess. Of course, the film is NOT PRESENTED IN 3-D as the cover art and film credits indicate, leaving the usual banality of tossing things at the screen a wasted effort in flat projection. The audio track is mono, strident and poorly balanced.
"Mysteries of the Wax Museum" suffers from heavy age related artifacts, digital compression artifacts, edge enhancement and the inherant short-comings of the two tone color process that, even at its best (which this transfer is no where near) is weak on a spectrum of color. Once again the audio track is mono.
EXTRAS: A theatrical trailer for "House of Wax". Thanks a lot!
BOTTOM LINE: "House of Wax" is one of those super kitsch films that could only have been made in the fifties. But in the deplorable looking transfer we've been given and minus its 3-D appeal, there's really nothing to recommend this disc to anyone but a die hard Vincent Price fan.

Has anyone ever portrayed the Nice Man Gone Crazy as well as Vincent Price? Of course not, and in House of Wax, Price is in top form as a loving sculptor who emerges from a fire with a different, errr, method for creating his wax sculptures. I don't know about you, but just the thought of being alone in a wax museum after dark gives me the creeps. Add a dose of homicidal mania, and there's your recipe for terror.
Most people will find this movie creepy even today; those who love camp will enjoy the prolonged ping-pong paddle scene catered to the orginal 3-D audience.
All in all, one of Vincent Price's best films, proving once again that nobody goes horribly insane quite like Vincent Price.
