"HOUSE OF WAX" BY WAY OF FULCI - "THE WAX MASK" GETS A NEW 4K TRANSFER & MORE IN SEVERIN'S LATEST RELEASE!
The original HOUSE OF WAX (which is actually a remake of THE MYSTERY OF THE WAX MUSEUM) is one of my all-time favorite classic Horror films. And as far as Italian Horror goes, I'm a big fan of Lucio Fulci! So you can imagine my surprise and excitement upon discovering the existence of THE WAX MASK, a reimagining of HOUSE OF WAX that was co-written by Fulci! And to make this release even more mouth-watering, Severin has given the film a new 4K transfer, lots of extras, and (if you buy the Limited Edition) a soundtrack CD! JOY! (Rest in Peace - My bank account.)
Synopsis: In the mid-'90s, Dario Argento approached a physically and professionally ailing Lucio Fulci to direct one final production, an over-the-top shocker about grisly murders at a Paris wax museum. But when Fulci passed away only weeks before filming began, Argento turned to Sergio Stivaletti – the FX genius on PHENOMENA, OPERA, DEMONS and CEMETARY MAN – to make his feature-directing debut.
Original Grand Guignol director/performer Robert Hossein (RIFIFI) and Aldo Massasso (CONTRABAND) star in what DVD Drive-In hails as "old-timey luridness married to state-of-the-art gore" – from a screenplay co-written by Fulci with cinematography by Sergio Salvati (ZOMBIE, THE BEYOND)!
