House of Wax — 3D

Still image from the film House of Wax
In the wicked performance that crowned him the movie's master of the macabre, Vincent Price plays a renowned wax sculptor plunged into madness when an arsonist destroys his life's work. In his first full-fledged "horror" role, Price plays Prof. Henry Jarrod, the owner of a wax museum, whose partner, Matthew Burke (Roy Roberts), intends to burn the place down for the insurance money. When Jarrod tries to prevent Burke from torching the museum, he himself is trapped in the conflagration. Frank Lovejoy and Paul Picerni co-star as the nominal heroes, while Charles Bronson—still billed as Charles Buchinsky—is a menacing presence as Jarrod's deaf-mute chief sculptor, appropriately named "Igor." (2K DCP/3D Presentation)
