Movie Log 2008

House of Wax (1953)

The last few 3-D movies I've seen, I've gotten more enjoyment seeing them "flat" than under the intended conditions. Here, the best gratuitous effects sequence comes in a long paddleball bit. Seriously. The film itself is great fun. Vincent Price, not yet known as a horror icon, leaves a surprising amount of scenery intact. The worst ham in the ensemble turns out to be Carolyn Jones, who had me eagerly awaiting her death within seconds. Whatever resemblence the 2005 "remake" bore, I'm sure they had Jones' portrayal in mind when casting Paris Hilton.
