He specializes in historical tableau’s such a Marie Antoinette or Joan of Arc. His business partner, Matthew Burke, needs some of his investment returned to him and pushes Jarrod to have more lurid exposes like a chamber of horrors. When Jarrod refuses, Burke set the place alight destroying all of his beautiful work in the hope of claiming the insurance. Jarrod is believed to have died in the fire but he unexpectedly reappears some 18 months later when he opens a new exhibit. This time, his displays focus on the macabre but he has yet to reproduce his most cherished work, Marie Antoinette. When he meets his new assistant’s beautiful friend, Sue Allen, he knows he’s found the perfect model – only unbeknown to anyone, he has a very particular way of making his wax creations.
Plot: A New York sculptor who opens a wax museum to showcase the likenesses of famous historical figures runs into trouble with his business partner, who demands that the exhibits become more extreme in order to increase profits.

A pure classical horror flick—and had my great great uncle in it.
My great uncle was in this movie, being the barker. Watch this movie and get out of the way of his ”tricks”. His name was Reggie Rymal. I’m Larry…
My uncle was an entertainer and comedian in the early 1950s and was well known for his paddle-ball skills. He performed standup comedy and paddle-ball at hotels around the country. He appeared on many television shows during the early days of TV including “The Eddie Cantor Show, You Asked For It, and Ladies Choice.
I have always felt he was chosen for this movie due to the contribution in content for the 3-D effects. He was simply an amazing guy.
One of Vincent Price’s finest
House Of Wax was the movie that made Vincent Price an established horror star and this has to be one of his best.
Henry Jarrod’s wax museum is set on fire deliberately by one of his friends for the insurance money and is killed in this. Jarrod is presumed dead, but he isn’t and he reopens the museum under a new name, House of Wax. He has used real bodies for the exhibits, murdering his victims at night, without his mask as his face was badly scarred in the fire. One woman reminds him of his top exhibit which got destroyed in the fire and he wants her in his collection. He captures her but she is rescued by her lover at the end and Gerrard is put in the cauldron of wax and killed.
House of Wax has a haunting music score and is atmospheric throughout.
Joining Price in the cast are Frank Lovejoy, Phyllis Kirk, Carolyn Jones and an early role for Charles Bronson as Price’s mute assistant Igor.
House of Wax is a must see for horror fans. Fantastic.
Rating: 4 and a half stars out of 5.
