Really Not Worth Your Time
24 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A scarred, embittered owner of a wax museum with a twisted mind devises horrible fates for those who cross him.

This piece of trash was written by the prolific Rex Carlton, and directed by Bud Townsend (who went on to direct the much more memorable film, "Alice in Wonderland" -- the porn version). It comes to us with below average film quality, at least on the Mill Creek disc. Star Cameron Mitchell ("Blood and Black Lace") probably regretted appearing in this one.

There is an interesting, bulky head bandage with the victim smoking... unintentionally scary... but that's like the only nice thing i can say about it. There is a pointless go-go dancing scene with a band called the T-Bones... really dates the film, for better or worse.

There is no point in ever seeing this movie.
