A 2005 review of this picture would've registered more shock from me...

A stupid, brainless, and pointless horror installment with all the usual characters, and pretty bad acting all around...

This Wax's infusion of Paris Hilton and flirty teen sex comedy retreads might have sent original wax maniac Vincent Price into spontaneous meltdown, without the need of heating fluid.

Not just fun and funny (don't forget, Paris Hilton's in it), but it's also surprisingly frightening.

Apparent kills are left unverified, handy firearms are left untouched, and the group splits up a record four times, ensuring most of these dolts will never see the dawn.

Mal actuada, mal editada, previsible de principio a fin y sin terror alguno de por medio, es una de esas cintas que deberían haberse quedado en la fase de proyecto.

Now, if you can just stay sane until the actual slasher portion of the flick takes off, you might be okay.

It's a bloody, messy little throwback that unintentionally brushes against fetish since it eventually dips so many of its hotties in hot wax.

House of Wax aims low and hits the mark. It has all the gory bloodshed you could ask for and all the right special effects.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

After one gets past the trendy casting of Paris Hilton, this above-average horror flick actually surfaces from the bloody pit of remakes clutching a few decent ideas.

The whole thing is vacuously enjoyable, downright nasty in places and, despite the fact that the ending is rushed, has a pretty spectacular finish.

The film's storyline has more in common with Manos, The Hands of Fate than the original House of Wax.

This is a well-made film with a lot more gore than you're expecting and a lot less humor than you're expecting.

It adheres strictly to teen-slasher formula before simply melting away.

Qualquer filme no qual Paris Hilton se revele a figura mais sensata certamente tem algo de muito errado.

Meanwhile, the audience wonders when Paris Hilton will be eviscerated for their enjoyment.

[House of Wax] gleefully trots out all the clichés of the genre before going out in a blaze of glory with a truly spectacular final act.
