The first color 3-D feature film from a major American studio, House of Wax centers on Wax sculptor Henry who is horrified to learn that his business partner, Matthew, plans on torching their wax museum to collect on the insurance policy. Henry miraculously survives a fiery confrontation with Matthew and re-emerges some years hence with a museum of his own. But when the appearance of Henry’s new wax sculptures occurs at the same time that a number of corpses vanish from the city morgue, art student Sue Allen begins suspecting wrongdoing.
The film sports a 95% over on Rotten Tomatoes with a Critics Consensus that reads: House of Wax is a 3-D horror delight that combines the atmospheric eerieness of the wax museum with the always chilling presence of Vincent Price.
