Better than "House of Wax" anyway

Just sort of lays there for long stretches like a dead weasel.

Amusing diversion, but nothing special

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Waxwork is certainly no hidden horror gem, but its flashes of wit and genuine enthusiasm for the horror genre are enough to make it a reasonably enjoyable time.

Audience Reviews for Waxwork

½

Entertaining comic horror which see's six young friends lured to a mysterious waxwork museum where the owner has plans to make them part of the exhibit. It's a little silly but a good fun ride all the same. You have a good range of classic monsters on show from Vampires, Zombies and Werewolves and a decent amount of gore too. It all has a rushed feel to it and the editing is very choppy but that just keeps the excitement flowing!

Cheesy and campy, but great fun. Lots of eye candy for both sexes too. As long as you don't take it that seriously, then you probably won't be disappointed.

An evil waxwork proprietor uses his occult powers to send teenagers into a lame nightmare worlds inhabited by famous film monsters, which will somehow enable him to take over the world. Competent production values and a tiny bit of humor can't save the tepid teen terror tableaux.
