Classic Vincent Price. I truly think that he is one of Hollywood's greatest actors, he is able to portray virtually any type of character, and make you believe in them.

My mother took me to see this when I was a young child. Nightmares ensued that very evening. More than almost any other actor of any generation owes a debt of gratitude to the performances of Vincent Price. Price with his marvelous voice and presence could have chosen to be a stage actor but he selected film as his expertise. We are lucky that he had such a long and vigorous career. He also did a lot more than horror films.

House of Wax definitely inspired an entire generation of horror flicks. Vincent Price gives a fine performance as a tortured, vengeful artist. It's not too often when an iconic horror movie villain is as layered and believable as Price's disfigured sculptor. This is easily one of his better films due to not only the acting but the fine way in which the movie was made. Despite its age and basis, House of Wax isn't nearly as hokey as it could be.
