Jump Scare Rating: Jump scares were not really part of moviemaking in the 1950’s. The 4 minor ones listed below are only barely worth mentioning. House of Wax (1953) should not cause the faint of heart any problems.

Synopsis: Henry, a wax sculptor, is horrified to find that his business partner, Matthew, intends to burn their wax museum to the ground in order to collect on the insurance policy. Henry somehow survives a dramatic showdown with Matthew and reappears with his own museum a few years later. However, when Henry’s new wax sculptures arrive at the same time that a succession of bodies disappear from the city morgue, art student Sue Allen,  suspects foul play.
