Six friends take the most cliched route through the entire film in order to face a live or death scenario dealing with a small town and theirs strange wax museum. Not only are the characters dull, so is the entire rest of the movie. The deaths aren't even that interesting. It didn't help that some of the most climatic moments had the weirdest camera angles. Although the end of the climax was cool and the sibling stories were interesting enough, neither was good enough to make the film worth seeing. There are better horror films out there. Best to skip this one.

This movie is about Six stupid friends heading to a football game decide to camp for the night only to be sidelined by car trouble the next day. The nearest town is home to two sadistic brothers who have turned the entire place into their own house of wax and are always looking to expand the business. This is one of those movies that it is so bad that it is so enjoyable, The story has been done before and The characters are annoying.

The slasher genre has been overdone and this variation doesn't enter new waters. There are some decent scares, but, mostly, the film is so "by the book" that even the supposedly shocking scenes aren't that shocking because we know when to expect them. You can spot the origin story of the killer a mile away, too.

Before you begin saying things, House Of Wax was a pretty decent remake. There have been worse remakes, but this is the ones that actually works, well that's my opinion. Elisha Cuthbert, an Chad Michael Murray's acting was amazing.... Paris Hilton's character shouldn't have been added, and that would have made the movie a lot better. House Of Wax, surprisingly has scary parts, and a lot of suspense. It was a real fun movie I enjoyed watching. The plot was okay, but the actors were pretty good, and this turned out to be a great remake.

House of Wax

This could've been a typical slasher movie but it ultimately isn't. Sure, there was a killer (or two, or three, or four) but I didn't think the fear factor relied on that. The film depended on how real (and extremely creepy) such people made of wax are. I think the conclusion was also pretty good when the House of Wax started collapsing. It made me wonder how they managed to film that. I still can't get over the fact that Paris Hilton was in this picture. She did a pretty nice job as a shallow blonde (which I assume didn't require much acting chops). Still, the characters are one-dimensional (except Chad Michael Murray, who I think did a nice job with what little he's been given) but at least it's interesting how some of them died. I wouldn't necessarily watch this film just for the fun o...
