House of Wax (HD3D/BD)
In the wicked performance that crowned him the movie's master of the macabre, Vincent Price plays a renowned wax sculptor plunged into madness when an arsonist destroys his life's work. Unable to use his flame-scarred hands, he devises a new - and murderous - way of restocking his House of Wax.]]>

Some are complaining about ghosting (also with Dial M For Murder) but I found that if you tilt the TV screen downwards the ghosting would disappear. If your TV does not tilt, stand up & you will see the difference. Some are complaining about it being grainy. This is probably the scene where Vincent Price is running after Phyllis Kirk in the fog. Yes it looks grainy because the Blu-Ray is so sharp you will see the graininess.
I am buying many 3D movies but none compare with these movies from the '50's. I also have "The Creature From The Black Lagoon", another great 3D movie. Still waiting for "It Came from Outer Space". I just hope that ALL the studios decide to put out their great backlog of '50's 3D movies. The new movies just don't compare. They look fake.
Again this movie is flawless. If you were waiting for a good reason to buy a 3D TV, this is it! This movie will do it for you.
My only wish was that they put it out with the 5.1 surround soundtrack. It is only DTS 2.0. Please note that this does NOT detract from the fabulous transfer.
Movie Studios, PLEASE release your backlogs (even the cartoons from that era, Bugs, Popeye etc.). Disney did a great job with "Working For Peanuts". There are MANY 3D buffs who can't wait for further releases.
Does not get better than this!!!!
The picture is sharp and detailed, the Warnercolor is beautiful, and the 3D effects are outstanding. The surround stereo is thrilling to hear, and really enhances the entire experience.
This is a much better presentation than Warner's "Dial M for Murder," which was released on 3D Blu-ray last year. Although I enjoyed watching that one, it suffered with heavy ghosting issues at times on my 3D Epson LCD projector. Such is not the case with "House of Wax," which is absolutely spectacular, one of those movies you're gonna want to show family and friends when they stop by.
If you were on the fence about buying this one, it's time to hop down and pay the piper. Congratulations to Warner Bros. for doing an outstanding restoration job on this classic, important piece of cinema history.

"Mystery of the Wax Museum" (The aspect ratio on this movie definitely changes when the opening title/credits are over and goes to the "London - 1921" opening.) I think this one could have been done better with the image quality. Audio is English Dolby Digital 2.0
