House of Wax Reviews
Elisha Cuthbert delivers a raw and emotional performance that put the viewer right there with her. Chad Michael Murray exudes charisma and a hard edge, as well as some impressive athleticism on top of it. Murray and Cuthbert gel perfectly, and have tangible, familial chemistry. And Paris Hilton is fine in her debut acting role but she is far from the focal point.
Horror remake of 1953's House of Wax.
Soon after the horror strikes with a few worryingly sadistic mutilation and death scenes. That's not entirely new either but rather well filmed and entertaining, sometimes even exciting. Elisha Cuthbert as one of the leaders of the new wave of scream queens is convincing enough and even Paris Hilton isn't any worse than most other actresses in roles like hers. At least the showdown in the burning, melting house of wax is pretty damn original and something you've never seen like that before. Not bad.
