House of Wax (1953) Review:

House of Wax is a fun entertaining horror feature filmed in 3D, featuring the great Vincent Price in one of the most famous roles that kick-started his career in horror films and made him the great horror that he is.

It was a big hit at the box office in 1953 and one of the earliest films to be filmed in color 3-D during the 3D film craze of the 50s. It also helped Vincent Price’s reputation as a horror star and got him other major roles in horror films such as House on Haunted Hill, The Fly and The Tingler.

The plot is fun, the performances from the characters are strong, the setting is and the wax museum is pretty spooky, especially with the creepy wax sculptures and how real they look.

House of Wax is a classic horror film that has spectacular 3D effects and is must-see for Vincent Price fans. Fans of Carolyn Jones (The Addams Family) will also appreciate seeing her in one of her very first roles.
