With Vincent Price, Frank Lovejoy, Phyllis Kirk, Carolyn Jones, Charles Bronson
House of Wax is a 1953 American horror film starring Vincent Price about a disfigured sculptor who repopulates his destroyed wax museum by murdering people and using their dead bodies as wax displays. It is a remake of Warners' Mystery of the Wax Museum, without the comic relief featured in the earlier film, and was directed by André de Toth. In 2005, Warner Bros. distributed a new film called House of Wax, but its plot is very different from the one used in the two earlier films.
House of Wax was the first color 3-D feature from a major American studio and premiered just two days after the Columbia Pictures film Man in the Dark, the first major-studio black-and-white 3-D feature.
