In a gleefully wicked performance Vincent Price plays Professor Harry Jarrod, a renowned wax sculptor plunged into insanity when an arsonist destroys his life’s work. Unable to use his flame-scared hands he comes up with a new way of restocking his House of Wax!

When the dauntless Sue Allen (Phyllis Kirk) discovers a wax figure resembling a missing friend Jarrod decides to line up the same fate for her.
