Warner Bros has finally set a release date for their 3D Blu-ray release of Andre deToth’s HOUSE OF WAX! “In 1953, the film was the first color 3D feature released by a major studio. The huge hit also marked Vincent Price’s first major starring horror role and changed the course of his career. Thanks to advanced technology and the expert work of Warner Bros. Motion Picture Imaging (MPI), audiences will now be able to enjoy the classic mystery shocker as it was originally seen in theatres.”
Sign me up! With a wealth of catalog titles like Hitchcock’s DIAL M FOR MURDER, THE CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON, and AMITYVILLE 3-D already on or coming soon to 3D Blu-ray, the urge to purchase a 3D TV just became that much more urgent!
HOUSE OF WAX 3D drips onto Blu-ray October 1st, 2013!
Professor Henry Jarrod is the owner and figure sculptor in a wax museum whose specialty is historic figures. When he and his business partner, Matthew Burke quarrel over the choice of exhibits displayed, Burke suggests it would be more profitable to burn down the museum in order to obtain the insurance money. As they fight, the museum burns and Jarrod is left for dead. It’s not until much later at a new museum that the fate of Jarrod and the mystery of how the lifelike waxed figures are created becomes gruesomely evident.
