You know the one about the group of horny kids who get offed one by one? Yeah, so do director Jaume Collet-Serra and his screenwriters, who have updated an old Vincent Price flick and sandwiched it between hearty slices of The Blair Witch Project and various Friday the 13th films. Lots of WB and Fox network hotties--including 24's Elisha Cuthbert, One Tree Hill's Chad Michael Murray, and, well, Paris Hilton--have car trouble and stumble onto a town populated by real killer personalities. The R-rated result is fairly gruesome and, though no one ever quite looks frightened enough, Collet-Serra knows his way around a jolting suspense sequence or two. Cuthbert and an unintentionally funny Murray (striking ludicrous poses as some kind of real toughie) act more like angry ex-lovers than the fraternal twins they're supposed to be; Hilton acts bored while her real-life video scandal is exploited for ironic kicks; and the film heads shamelessly over-the-top with each new twist. As an exercise in bloody mayhem, it has a few novel touches, but you can easily find better scares. --Steve Wiecking,

Product Description

Horror from director Robert Zemeckis. What begins as a weekend getaway for six friends becomes a terrifying fight for their lives. A road trip to one of the biggest college football games of the year takes a turn for the worse for Carly (Elisha Cuthbert), Paige (Paris Hilton) and their friends when they decide to camp out for the night before heading to the game. A confrontation with a mysterious trucker at the camp site leaves everyone unsettled, and Carly has her hands full trying to keep the peace between her boyfriend Wade (Jared Padalecki) and her hot-headed brother Nick (Chad Michael Murray). They wake up the next morning to find that their car might have been deliberately tampered with. At the risk of being stranded, they accept a local's invitation for a ride into Ambrose, the only town for miles. Once there, they are drawn to Ambrose's main attraction - Trudy's House of Wax, which is filled with remarkably life-like wax sculptures. But as they soon discover, there is a shocking reason the exhibits look so real. As the friends uncover the town's dark secrets, they are stalked by a mysterious killer and find themselves in a bloody battle for survival. The group must find a way out of Ambrose - or become permanent additions to the House Of Wax.

3.0 out of 5 stars A novel kind of "all over body wax"... 28 Mar 2006
By L. Davidson VINE VOICE
I haven't seen the 1953 original version of this film starring Vincent Price , but I suspect that it is better than this 2005 remake. There is nothing in "House of Wax" that I haven't seen before. It is a fairly ordinary "slasher" film featuring a group of young people on a road trip who end up getting bumped off one by one in an isolated village in Louisiana. A lot of the gore in the film is totally gratuitous and certainly does not add to the enjoyment of the film. The dialogue and characterisation in "House of Wax" is cliched and uninspired and the action is mostly predictable , although the acting itself is reasonably good. For me ,the highlight of the movie was the House of Wax itself , a superb Gothic creation and the stunning special effects in it at the end are the saving grace of a fairly run of the mill "horror" movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars More fun than waxing! 19 Dec 2005
By DVD Fan
I have not seen the original film, but this is not a remake of the Vincent Price movie, similar to the recent House on hauted hill film also done by Dark castle is not a straight remake. This is very much a modern day teen horror and is one of the best I have seen of the gerne and I have seen quite a few!
Very similar in some ways to Wrong turn, a group of young friends head of for a road trip to a football game and take a shortcut of the beaten road. After camping overnight one of the cars needs a repair. So off they go into the local town where they could become the next main attraction!
House of wax has some good young actors, especially Elisha Cutbert and Paris Hilton in the eye candy role. Good special effects you barely notice as they blend in rather well. Some grusome and original death scenes! For a 15 this does have some gory moments, similar to other Dark Castle productions I noticed. Overall a very good, original horror featuring a strong cast, a bit slow to start but once things start to go wrong for the group the action doesn't let up. Horror fans espescially will want this in their collection!
It has plenty of extras too, a fun commentary by the 4 main actors as they view footage from production and out-takes. A very unique extra as they laugh and joke looking back to the time of filming and nearly 30 minutes long! There is a 10min feature on the production design of the House of wax and the town set. A 8min feature on the special effects used. Also 1 deleted scene, short gag reel and a trailer. A well put together DVD with some fun extras and a great film! 8/10

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly entertaining!! Well worth a look! 26 Aug 2005
Don't make the mistake of automatically thinking this movie can't be any good, just because Paris Hilton is in it. Some critics complained about the slow start to the movie, but this is because time is taken to let us get to know the characters. If we don't don't get to know them, then we're not gonna care when bad things start to happen. Elisha Cuthbert and Chad Michael Murray come away from this film with the acting honours, with Elisha in particular being a very believable horror movie heroine. The movie really comes into its own in the final 20 minutes, when there is some superb effects work to portray the demise of the actual wax house. If you saw this film at the cinema, the DVD is well worth getting for its extras which include - B-roll and bloopers, Cast commentaries, Wax on, Melt down, Gag reel, Alternate open, From location - Joel Silver reveals House of Wax, theatrical trailer.
So go on, sit back and enjoy yourself - this film is 100% guaranteed to entertain you!

5.0 out of 5 stars House Of Wax DVD 13 Oct 2005
House Of Wax has to be one of, if not the best film i've ever watched - it has everything anyone could possibly want from a horror film and more and features some amazing talent from up and coming actors including Elisha Cuthbert (from 24), Chad Michael Murray (from One Tree Hill) and .. well .. Paris Hilton.
The basic plot is about a group of six friends on their way to a football game and decide to camp out in the woods. In the morning they find their car has been tampered with so make thier way to a deserted 'middle-of-nowhere' town to find help. This town is home to Trudy's House Of Wax - a seemingly popular attraction with extremely life-like wax inhabitants. But when the group start being bumped off one by one and becoming involentry members of this Wax Mueseum, they uncover this town's shocking secret and must escape before there's none of them left to tell the tale.
This film, as any other, offers it's share of thrills and chills and can be quite gross at times but is interesting and fast paced from the word go, never looses it's grip on the audience and builds up to a stunning and visually magnificant climax which will stay with you for a while.
The plot's is great but the cast help carry the film also, even Paris as she brought alot of media hype to this movie and i was shocked to see myself hoping she'd survive in this film as it was Elisha who brought my attention to it.
The DVD also offers great special features including 3 Featurettes, a Behind The Scenes Audio Commentary for Bloopers with 4 of the cast (Elisha, Chad, Paris and Jared), an Alternate Opening Sequence and the Theactrical Trailer.
I recommend this to fans of such films as Darkness Falls, Wrong Turn and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre but not so much to fans of the original as this version is very loosly based on the Vincent Price classic.
