Synopsis
Henri and Marie are the owners of a wax museum, and Marie claims that the wax figures in the chamber of horrors tell her that they are being tortured, so she averts their eyes from their victims and lowers their weapons. This infuriates Henri who threatens his wife with death should she touch the statutes again. When he discovers Marie has altered the chamber of horrors to a scene more resembling a joyful party, he strangles Marie. The wax figures get revenge and turn Henri into a large candle for Marie's funeral display.
