This is a chiller story with grisly horror , genuine thrills and shocks
8 November 2018 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Horrid and frightening terror movie with an awesome acting by Jack Taylor as a revenger doctor . The eerie story contains bit good fun with killings , chilling interpretations , relentless horror and thrilling events . Young reporter Mike (Jimmy Shaw) gets an assignment to spend one whole evening in a spooky wax museum at a ¨Reality show¨ run by a filmmaker (Geraldine Chapin) . Initially believing to be alone inside the place ; however , there appears a mysterious and ghastly character . Inside, he must survive against a vengeful and murderous Doctor .Mike eventually finds himself being horrorized by the malevolent presence of sadistic cannibal surgeon Dr. Knox (Jack Taylor) .

The eerie story contains bit good fun with killings , chilling interpretations , relentless horror and thrilling events . This is a peculiar remake ¨House of Wax¨ by Andre De Toth with Vincent Price and considered to be a very early horror flick and one of the 50s most popular 3-D films that was the first film released with a stereophonic soundtrack .The chiller version of the 50s packs scary chills and terrifying deaths . The wax figures from ¨Barcelona Wax Museum¨ are the real stars of this production , being rightly realized . Some scenes are clumsily shot but the movie has some good moments here and there , the illogical parts in the argument are more than compensated for the excitement provided by the creepy wax models , eerie killers and many other things .The motion picture was professionally directed by Victor Matellano , though it has flaws and gaps .

Other films dealing with ¨House of wax¨ are the followings : 1933 vintage horror classic and rarely seen ¨Mystery of the wax museum¨ , here main starring was a heroin addict but that had to be changed for the remake, it was starred by Lionel Atwill , Fay Wray , Glenda Farrell ; ¨Terror in the Wax Museum¨ (1973) by George Fenady with Ray Milland , Elsa Lanchester , Maurice Evans , John Carradine , Patrick Knowles , ¨Waxwork¨ (1988) by Anthony Hickcock with Zach Galligan , Joe Baker , Deborah Foreman , Michelle Johnson , David Warner . And modern retelling ¨House of wax¨ by Jaume Collet-Serra with Elisa Cuthbert , Jared Padalecki , Paris Hilton and Chad Murray .
