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.

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 …
