House of Wax is admirable as one of the few movies - and even fewer horror movies - to feature an interracial couple without mention of race.

Comes across like an extended (and violent) episode of Scooby-Doo, and viewing the film as such makes it much more entertaining to watch.

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.
February 26, 2007
Not just fun and funny (don't forget, Paris Hilton's in it), but it's also surprisingly frightening.

...I think any horror fan would leave this film having had a good time.

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.
July 21, 2005
The whole thing is vacuously enjoyable, downright nasty in places and, despite the fact that the ending is rushed, has a pretty spectacular finish.
June 16, 2005
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.
May 24, 2005
Makes up for its idiot plot with a gallon of gore.
May 22, 2005
This isn't so much a remake of the 1953 classic as a standard slasher movie grafted onto a familiar title.
May 21, 2005
As far as gory, twisted, sharp-stick-through-the-f---in'-head slasher flicks go, the new House of Wax ain't too shabby.
May 18, 2005
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.)
May 14, 2005
Not a classic by any means, but satisfactory in the basics of the genre.
May 14, 2005
Should make horror fans quite content.
May 14, 2005
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.
May 10, 2005
House of Wax's violence is abrupt and gory, giving it an ick factor that surprises and repulses in a good way.
May 9, 2005
Much of the film's running time is devoted to subtle provoking of primal fears...
May 9, 2005
It had a great sense of humor about itself.
