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.

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.

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

[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.

Makes up for its idiot plot with a gallon of gore.

This isn't so much a remake of the 1953 classic as a standard slasher movie grafted onto a familiar title.

As far as gory, twisted, sharp-stick-through-the-f---in'-head slasher flicks go, the new House of Wax ain't too shabby.

Serra brings the universal fear of disfigurement an old fashioned treatment, with natural pacing and a lack of abrasive special effects (until the terrific looking climax.)

Not a classic by any means, but satisfactory in the basics of the genre.

Fright films that deliver the shocking goods with noticeable dashes of wit and style are so hard to find these days, even a flawed one such as House of Wax deserves to be given a chance.

House of Wax's violence is abrupt and gory, giving it an ick factor that surprises and repulses in a good way.

Don't blame Hilton for this misbegotten Wax job

... doesn't look down upon its target audience... House both treats and terrorizes while legitimizing itself next to other slasher classics.
