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
This stylish gothic thriller is very reminiscent of the Hammer Horror movies from the 60’s and 70’s except with more more blood and nudity. A vibrant almost Technicolor look, elaborate sets and really good gory practical effects make this film a must see for fans of the old Saturday afternoon Creature Features. My only complaint would be the awful English dubbing and it is about 20 minutes too long, making it drag a bit midway through. I still really enjoyed it and it and was well worth the watch.
I did enjoy this film immensely! What a classic
For years, I missed watching this one. I love Italian horror. This was seriously well done, screenplay, acting, cinematography. Solid all around. If Fulci made it, I'm sure it would be more surreal and even weirder. Solid all around. One of the last great Italian horror films
Italian House of Wax with gore and nudity.
i loved it. goofy, gory and definitely a fun ride
