The U.S. version of this film, released by American International, featured a special introductory segment titled "Hyno-Vista" that was spliced into the film at the end of the opening credits. This 12 minute segment featured Dr. Emile Franchel, a London born psychologist working in Los Angeles, giving a lecture and demonstration of the power of suggestion, perception and hypnosis (his specialty).

Wax Museum + Killer Binoculars + Michael Gough = One Hell Of A Good Time!
This terrifically terrible 60's exploitation flick gets upgraded to cult status via a deliciously demented performance by the unparalleled Michael Gough. Known for his over-the-top turns in many genre films, Horror Of The Black Museum is a perfect exemplification of Gough's non-stop twisted maniacal facial expressions run rampant. Its impossible to take your eyes off of him in any scene he is in. But that is not where the fun ends. There are several fiendishly nasty (although highly improbable) killings and a ridiculously retarded dance number by Marilyn Monroe wannabe June Cunningham that will stay in your mind long after the credits have rolled. This is one of those films that can be enjoyed by both us hardcore B- horror junkies and our "normal" friends. The plot? A horror/murder writer with a secret wax museum housing articles involved with local murders is always one step ahead of the police. Find out why when you buy your ticket to The Black Museum!
