House of Wax

Directed by Andre de Toth

Part of MSPIFF 3D at Walker

Professor Henry Jarrod (Vincent Price) survives a fire set to his wax museum by an associate out to claim insurance money. Angry at the loss of wax figures that he considers to be friends, Jarrod embarks on a vengeful journey to re-create his museum. He enlists the help of a thuggish sculptor Igor (Charles Bronson) to rebuild the enterprise from scratch but with dark and sinister intentions. House of Wax, the first color 3D feature from a major studio, received wide acclaim and popular success in 1953. A defining moment in cinema history is brought into the present by the recent restoration of this classic film in digital 3D. 1953, DCP, 88 minutes.
