Summary
  • [House of wax] An acclaimed wax sculptor goes insane when he loses both his art and the use of his hands in an arsonist's inferno. The flame scarred man rebuilds his house of wax by dipping his victims in wax! Both critics and the public praise his new works but a lone voice cries murder and as she sets out to prove his guilt, she hardly knows the horrors that await her
  • [Mystery of the wax museum] A deranged wax sculptor who almost loses his life in a fire set by his partner. Instead of dying in the blaze, he returns for revenge, hiding his horribly disfigured face behind a wax mask
