Nightmare in Wax

boxghmv5bodizmdazndm4ov5bml5banbnxkftztcwnjgwmtaymq-_v1_From IMDB : “The disfigured curator of a wax museum murders his enemies and then uses their bodies as exhibits in his museum. ”

All I can say about this one is it’s a poor man’s “House of Wax”. Indeed it really feels like a remake…but without Vincent Price. I even get a dash of the Mad Magician in the performance. There’s nothing particuarly bad about this movie, Bud Townsent directs a fun saturday afternoon horror flick here and I wish it could stand on it’s own, but in the end, I find myself watching Cameron Mitchell and insted longing for Vincent Price.

This would likely make an excellent double feature with house of Wax though (and is far superior to that remake Dark Castle did some years back anyhow….)
