Whenever the Plaza Theatre hosts the monthly Silver Scream Spook Show, I always like to post one of the vintage trailers of the films in question, because they can be highly entertaining in and of themselves. I couldn't find one for House of Wax, an old-school 3-D presentation of the Vincent Price revenge flick from 1953, to be presented at 1 and 10 p.m. Sat., Dec. 29. But I found something that might be even better. Sweeney Todd director Tim Burton hosted a special broadcast of House of Wax on Atlanta's TNT in the early 1990s, and YouTube has the interview segments. It offers a preview of the film while revealing its influences on the audiences and filmmakers of later generations.
