Makes up for its idiot plot with a gallon of gore.
May 14, 2005
Filled with the usual contemporary horror staples, most notably lots of rusty torture implements and cellphones that tend to scurry mischievously out of reach just as the villain bears down on his prey.

It had a great sense of humor about itself.

You'll be rooting for these people to get slaughtered out of sheer boredom.
May 6, 2005
This movie gives it to you, as no movie has in some years.
May 6, 2005
When the cast starts wondering where the roadkill is, someone says, 'Follow the smell.' Good tip: That's how you'll know where Wax is playing.
May 6, 2005
A very stupid, very nasty and very messy horror film.
May 6, 2005
It's nowhere near as punishing as Rob Zombie's House of 1,000 Corpses, but it's increasingly tense and resourceful and, in the end, it gets the sick job done.
May 6, 2005
Wretched excuse for a horror flick.
May 6, 2005
The debut feature from director Jaume Collet-Serra does two things rare in the horror genre: It takes its time and it actually gets better as it goes along.
May 6, 2005
A standard-issue 'dead teenager movie.'
May 6, 2005
The movie would have been creepier if it had shut us inside the museum, and given us more creative wax-based killings instead of revisiting familiar slasher-flick stuff.
May 6, 2005
A remake in title only, this House of Wax is mostly inspired by The Twilight Zone and the Friday the 13th movies.
May 6, 2005
Yet for a so-called exploitation film, Wax is slow to exploit. Its leisurely setup is a fright-challenged snooze, and at nearly two hours it's bloated for a slasher flick.
May 6, 2005
The original was shot in 3-D; this, by contrast, is 1-D all the way.
May 6, 2005
There is not one redeeming moment in this movie, unless you consider Paris Hilton stripping down to her underwear and getting killed redeeming.
May 6, 2005
The acting in House of Wax is as horrible as you might expect.
May 6, 2005
The acting in House of Wax ranges from bad to worse.
May 6, 2005
House of Wax is not a good movie but it is an efficient one, and will deliver most of what anyone attending House of Wax could reasonably expect, assuming it would be unreasonable to expect very much.
May 5, 2005
Related to the 1953 Vincent Price film in name, embalming technique and Warner Bros. pedigree only, the new House of Wax is a dreary, predictable tale.
