Wax Museum Movies - A Comprehensive Filmography - George Higham

Wax Museum Movies by George Higham. 288 pages. B&W photos.

Spanning over a century of cinema and comprised of 127 films, this book analyzes the cinematic incarnations of the "uncanniest place on Earth" -- wax museums. Nothing is as it seems at a wax museum. It is a place of wonder, horror and mystery. Will the figures come to life at night, or are they very much dead with corpses hidden beneath their waxen shells? Is the genius hand that molded them secretly scarred by a terrible tragedy, longing for revenge? Or is it a sinner's sanctum, harboring criminals with countless places to hide in plain sight?

This chronological analysis includes essential behind-the-scenes information in addition to authoritative research comparing the creation of "real" wax figures to the "reel" ones seen onscreen.

Publicly accessible or hidden away in a maniac's lair, wax museums have provided the perfect settings for films of all genres to thrillingly play out on the big screen since the dawn of cinema.
