Mad Magician vs House of Wax

It's not even a contest !

Aside from the colour of '53,we truly have a horrific piece of horror in HOW.

Many other elements are clearly in play which makes 'Wax' even more suspenseful, fascinating and not as threadbare of a tale as MM is. And, I can still go on 'bout the score, etc.

However, I like MM regardless jus'cause Vinnie's in it and the gimmicks of homicide are arresting though dated.


HOW is better in every aspect. While this one isn't that well known, HOW is considered a classic for a reason.
