An associate burns down a wax museum with the owner inside, but he survives only to become vengeful and murderous. Vincent Price stars.

An October bonus pick from the MeFi Horror Club.

Oh, man. I saw this when I was about seven years old and it's haunted me ever since.

Watching this again, you can truly see how this made Price's career. He's marvelously urbane and sophisticated while still uber-creepy and evil.

Bonus: Tim Burton's short "Vincent".

Back sometime in the 70's this movie was re-released to the art-house circuit in it's full 3-D glory. My Dad and I went to see it and had a great time. I think it's the only 3-D movie I've ever bothered to see in a theater (Well, except for MuppetVision 3D)

Even in 2-D, it's a fun movie.
