I have real Creature Feature memories of this one from when I was but a wee shaver, so seeing again was a treat. That being said, it is not a lost gem, rather it is very bad and dated but still watchable. This time around I was struck by how stupid the cops were. You have a string of murders and the police find Cameron Mitchell in a cape and eyepatch and with incredibly lifelike models of the deceased but don't make a suspect of him....Anyhow, that's the kind of movie it is.

The violence is pretty tame by today's standards, and although there is no nudity, it does offer a totally bodacious go-go dance scene with interesting period costumes.

The only other Amazon reviewer of this flick gave it five stars, which is completely unjustifiable, so I wanted to put my two cents in to set the record straight, particularly since it has become hard to find.

Nightmare in Wax pulls together several themes that were popular in the 60s and 70s. There is the fascination with wax museums, and the sinister way in which they capture the appearance of real people, seen also in House of Wax, for example. There is also the preservation of life in body parts and, in particular, heads, such as in The Brain that Wouldn't Die. Add to that a comic twist of poking fun at actors and their own arrogance at their fame, such as in Theater of Blood. Nightmare in Wax brings all of these together, and it does surprisingly well for a movie that will remind you of so many others. Most notable are the scenes in the curator/scientists' lair which mix strange machinery, odd camera angles, and psychedelic color; the result is satisfyingly surreal.

I have not seen a single review that clearly understands what this movie is about. Some reviews imply a possible understanding on the part of the viewer but none explicitly state an awareness of the fact that the movie intends none of the bizarre events to have actually happened. It is only a nightmare the main character had with a clue to that twist in the title of the movie itself and in a bare comment the other main character makes near the end. Lots of acerbic attacks from the peanut gallery but little if any understanding of the story.
