Films: Nightmare in Wax (1969)
Location: Civilized Area
Height/Weight: That of an average human.
Summary: Waxworks are difficult, but they often perfectly capture famous figures and the like in their prime. It's almost as if they're alive. Almost...EXACTLY...as if they are.
History: Vincent Rinauld was a renowned make-up artist at Paragon Pictures. But he grew a bit too attracted to the leading actress there, causing the boss Max Black to fly into a jealous rage. By that, we mean he threw flammable champagne at Vincent while he was smoking, lighting him up and heavily disfiguring his face. Driven mad by his injuries, despite the cool eyepatch he got out of the deal, Vincent vowed to do in Paragon's biggest stars, even that actress. To do this, he injected with a paralysis serum, and threw them in a vat of wax so that they would remain statues while still alive. And they would follow Vincent's every whim for some reason.
Notable Kills: Dumping your enemies in wax and keeping them alive afterwards is an example of living death.
Final Fate: Vincent finally has Max hanging over the vat, but the man's constant mocking laughter and taunting causes the mad genius to lose control and try and drag him into the vat...only to fall into the vat himself. The last thing he sees in the vat is everyone he knows mocking him and all of his previous mistakes.
Powers/Abilities: Vincent has a serum in a syringe that paralyzes a target for a long time. Enough to dunk them in a vat.
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 4-Don't let that affable disposition fool you. Vincent is mad, and willing to put you in a catatonic state while encased in wax if he sees you as an enemy. That or he'll just have his wax goons kill you if he thinks you're suspicious.
Trivia: -Vincent was played by Cameron Mitchell, who is often considered to be one of the founders of New York's Actor's Studio.
-It costs about between 150 and 300 thousand dollars to make one wax sculpture.
