dub Italian take on 'House of Wax' was spearheaded by Dario Argento as a vehicle for Fulci to direct who was ill at the time. Special effects guru Stivaletti instead made this his directorial debut. The film's mix of violence and sex works for the genre but the scripting leaves a lot to be desired.
It's a remake of Adre de Toth's "Wax Mask" (starring Vincent Price), first to be directed by Lucio Fulci (but he died before at the time of the shooting). Anyway, the display of sex and sadism is really entertaining here, in a pure Italian horror vein, and Robert Hossein has a very funny part !
