One of the best early horror films.

Lionel Atwill stars as a man who face is scarred when he survives a fire his business partner started in order to collect insurance money on their wax museum.

Years later Ivan Igor (Atwill) sets up a museum in New York and soon bodies start disappearing from the morgue. A female reporter is on the case and won't let it go. She believe that Igor is behind the crimes. Glenda Farrell plays the reporter but it is Fay Wray who steals the show in my opinion.

Wray never looked lovelier and does a great job as the intended next victim of Igor, who wants to preserve her beauty in Wax. This was filmed in a two color technicolor process by Warner back in 1933 and on this Blu-ray presentation it looks very well preserved.

I am glad Warner decided to include this on the "House Of Wax" disc and I cannot recommend it enough to any horror fan.
