House of Wax Wikipedia »
House of Wax is a 1953 American horror film starring Vincent Price about a burned sculptor who repopulates his destroyed wax museum by murdering civilians and using their dead bodies as wax displays so they don't break. It is a remake of Warners' Mystery of the Wax Museum (1933), without the comic relief featured in the earlier film, and was directed by André de Toth. It is perhaps the best-known film from the 3-D film craze of the 1950s. In 2005, Warner Bros. distributed a new film called House of Wax, but its plot is very unlike the one used in the two earlier films.
