Scream Factory, the horror imprint of indie distributor Shout! Factory, has set a July 13 release date for its collector’s edition Blu-ray Disc of the 2005 House of Wax remake.
A loose remake of the 1953 Vincent Price film, House of Wax stars Elisha Cuthbert, Chad Michael Murray, Brian Van Holt, Paris Hilton, Jared Padalecki, Jon Abrahams and Robert Ri’chard. When their car breaks down on a road trip, six college friends are sidetracked into an eerie backwoods town. Curiosity gets the better of them when they are intrigued by its macabre House of Wax. They soon find out that the town is not what it seems, and that they must find their way out before they fall victim to its ghoulishly inventive killers.
