House of Wax

Episode 29 of The Fantastic Films of Vincent Price features a look at one of my favorites, as well as arguably the single most influential film of his career, HOUSE OF WAX. This is Price's first true horror film, and set the stage for a long career as Master of the Macabre.




Vincent Price stars as Professor Jarrod, proprietor of a Wax museum specializing in gruesome scenes of terror. With his mute assistant Igor (Charles Bronson) they have a unique method of creating all too lifelike figures for their museum...

About this series: Dr. Gangrene, Physician of Fright and Award-winning Nashville-based TV Horror Host (aka writer/film historian Larry Underwood) explores the films of the merchant of menace, Vincent Price, in chronological order from first to last, approaching them from a scholarly perspective, offering commentary, review and criticism.
