Storyline

Martin Lombard Senescu is a gentle man and the curator of Murderer's Row in Ferguson's wax museum. He loves his work and is fascinated by what drives men to commit the crimes that they do. He's informed by his boss Mr. Ferguson that the property is being sold to developers who will raze the building and erect a supermarket. Martin brings 5 of of wax figures home but after a year his wife is at her wits end. Martin spends all of his time in the basement with his beloved friends and the cost of keeping them is eating into their already limited income. When Martin finds Emma dead in the basement he buries her there. When her brother Dave shows up, he too is apparently killed. After Mr. Ferguson finally finds a buyer for the wax figures, Martin reluctantly agrees to let them go. There is an addition to he exhibit however. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

When Martin Senescu answers the couple, "Perhaps not young man..." The left most sailor (dark hair) is looking to his right, arms uncrossed, by his side. As Martin continues to speak (no break) and the camera angle changes, the sailor is now looking up and to his left, arms crossed with his left chin touching his chin. See more »

Quotes

Narrator: [Closing Narration] The new exhibit became very popular at Marchand's, but of all the figures, none was every regarded with more dread than that of Martin Lombard Senescu. It was something about the eyes, people said. It's the look that one often gets after taking a quick walk through the Twilight Zone.

Wax Friends
4 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Martin Balsam stars as Martin Lombard Senescu, long-time curator with Murders' Row in Ferguson's Wax Museum, who is stunned to find out that, because of poor attendance, the museum will be shut down and sold to re-developers to make way for a new supermarket! Appalled but powerless, Martin convinces Mr. Ferguson to let him take home five of the wax figures so that he can start his own museum, but the cost of refrigeration financially tasks him, and it seems the wax murderers are having a sinister influence on Martin, driving him to commit his own murders... Balsam is excellent here, and the story nicely fills out the hour length, with some eerie sequences, ambiguities, and clever twist ending.
