Overview

House of Wax was the first 3-D feature to come from a major studio during the brief stereoscopic boom of the 1950s, and while this DVD features a stubbornly 2-D edition of the film, it still honors its source material well. This edition has been transferred to disc in its original full-frame aspect ratio of 1.33:1, and the audio has been mastered in Dolby Digital Mono. In addition to the original English-language sound track, the disc also includes an alternate version dubbed in Spanish, as well as optional subtitles in English, French, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Portuguese, Spanish, and Thai. And the disc includes a rather surprising bonus -- a complete version of The Mystery of the Wax Museum, a 1933 feature adapted from the same original story.

This is one of the best horror films of the Fiftes.It's a remake of the
1933 film "The Mystery Of The Wax Museum",and it's better in every way.
The original is included here,and it's still good fun.But it looks very creaky and primitive now.This newer version is far superior,with a better script,cast and production.Crane Wilbur's screenplay and Andre De Toth's
direction move briskly and work up a good deal of suspense.The sets and costunes are beautiful and look great in gorgeous Technicolor photography.
The cast is very good,with Vincent Price outstanding in his first horror role.Overall,this is hugely enjoyable hokum.
