Price plays the role of Professor Henry Jarrod, a man thought to be killed in a fire defending his wax sculptures in a museum several years earlier. Disfigured and paralyzed, he re-opens his museum with new and horrific exhibits. This movie is awesome, and while the 2005 remake sported some nice special effects, one thing in particular ruined it all - Paris Hilton. This film was Warner Bros.' first attempt at utilizing the "3-D" effect as a gimmick to entertain the audience, but the scenes involving this primitive technology were pointless. This was a small price to pay for such a spectacular product. As Price's career flourished throughout the 30's and 40's, he used the experience gained in both theatre and motion pictures to deliver stunning performances. In the 14 years that followed The Tower of London, Price had the opportunity to further his talent in developing a new "color" to his acting palette. House of Wax ushered in a new era for Price, one in which he masterfully depicted sinister, revenge-ridden characters that would later be considered his trademark.
