“A luridly entertaining return to the style of Britain’s Hammer productions of the 1960s.”— David Rooney, VARIETY

In the mid-1990s, 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 Paris wax museum. When Fulci passed away only weeks before filming began, Argento turned to Sergio Stivaletti – the FX genius on PHENOMENA, OPERA, DEMONS and CEMETARY MAN – to make his feature-directing debut. Original Grand Guignol director/performer Robert Hossein (RIFFIFI) and Aldo Massasso (CONTRABAND) star, with a screenplay co-written by Fulci with cinematography by Sergio Salvati (ZOMBIE, THE BEYOND) – now featuring a 4k scan from the original negative supervised by Stivaletti
