House of Wax

Vincent Price plays Professor Henry Jarrod who survives a fire set to his wax museum by an associate out to claim insurance money. Angry at the loss of wax figures he considers to be friends, Jarrod embarks on a vengeful journey to recreate his museum. He enlists the help of a thuggish sculptor Igor, played by 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.
