Wax Mask

Wax Mask

Directed by Sergio Stivaletti

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 Rome wax museum. But when Fulci passed away only weeks before filming began, Argento turned to Sergio Stivaletti – the FX genius on PHENOMENA, OPERA, DEMONS to make his feature-directing debut.

Stivaletti, Argento and Fulci collaborate on a tale of grisly murders around a Rome wax museum.

Cast: Robert Hossein, Romina Mondello, Riccardo Serventi Longhi, Gabriella Giorgelli, Umberto Balli

Wax Masque was the first Giallo film that I have viewed. Strangely enough, when I was in Roma, I did not take advantage of the opportunity. The only explanation that I could give is I had an impression that Gialli was deranged, like “Saw”, a film that I avoid like Yersinia Pestis. I am surprised to say that I enjoyed this film, it was very strange; not unsettling and creepy like “Saw”, {I use “Saw”, as an example}. Previous to this, the closest that I came to Giallo was “Susperia 2018”, which I am unclear about whether or not, is classified as Giallo. I LOVED “SUSPERIA 2018‼️ I purchased it and watch it again and again. I saw the original when it was released, and liked it, it has been 30 years since I saw it. I am officially a fan of Gialli‼️

A slow, plodding plot and very 90s hair on a 1900's hero, but otherwise a feast for fans of practical effects and gory Grand Guignol. Beautiful women, horrible villain(s?), and a special effects wizard put in charge of a Lucio Fulci screenplay. If you're a fan of wax museum horror films, you'll want to see this one.

This movie deserves 5 skulls. They are so many films that have come after, that pay tribute to it, as l was watching l saw House of Wax 1953, which is an original, then House of Wax 2005, Anatomy 2000, and out of now where "BAM" there was "The Terminator" or Terminators, aka cyborgs. I'm sure that there are many more. Defiantly on my list of favourites.
