Professor Jerrold Henry (Vincent Price) is a sculptor who is obsessed with art, and each of his wax sculptures come to life. He has been immersed in the study of famous figures in history, especially Marie Antoinette, the queen of King Louis XVI of France. However, his business partner, Matthew Burke (Roy Roberts), is dissatisfied with the poor returns of Jerrod's wax museum. In order to collect the money faster, the mad Matthew burned down the entire wax museum, including all the wax sculptures that Gerald regarded as treasures. After the fire, Gerald was buried in the flames and mysteriously disappeared, and Matthew got a large insurance money as he wished.
After 18 months, Gerald was miraculously "resurrected". Not only that, but Jerrod has a brand new art exhibition, a creepy and bloody show about the violence of death. Sue Allen (Phyllis Kirk) is an ordinary beautiful girl who has just become Gerald's new assistant. But Su's life becomes dangerous and disturbing when her friend is mysteriously killed. How could Sue know that she was the next perfect wax figure, Marie Antoinette, that Gerald was going to create   .

    I forgot about it before, except for the wax figure of the dead man

    7/10, I was a little bored in the front, and I was horrified after knowing that the wax figure was made by a real person. How can I look directly at the wax figure in the future... It's too human-like. The policeman in this film is not a pig teammate. It's the first time I saw the police in a horror movie. Off topic, won't making wax figures infringe on portrait rights?

House of Wax quotes

  • Matthew Burke: You ever thought of what would happen if we had a fire here? In the cellar, there are six barrels of wax. Wax is paraffin based. It's highly inflammable. This place would go up like a paint factory.

    Prof. Henry Jarrod: Burn? Burn all of my people? You think I'm a murderer?

    Matthew Burke: Stop dreaming, will you? These dummies are insured for $25,000. That's $12,500 for each of us. You wouldn't need Wallace, you'd have enough to begin again.

    Prof. Henry Jarrod: No, I'd rather die myself than see my friends destroyed; I won't let you do it, and I'll kill you if you try!

    Matthew Burke: Don't be stupid! All you have to do is strike a match, and the thing is done.

    [Lights the fire and begins to scorch the wax museum]

  • Prof. Henry Jarrod: This is Igor - he's a deaf mute. He's one of my assistants.
