House of Wax (2005)

Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra. Written by Charles Belden and Chad and Carey Hayes. Starring Elisha Cuthbert, Chad Michael Murray, Paris Hilton, Jared Padalecki, Jon Abrahams, Robert Ri’chard, Damon Herriman and Brian Van Holt.

Plot: six young people take a road trip and are detoured to a wax museum that is even more scary than it seems.

Six friends are taking a road trip to a football game in Louisiana when they stop to camp out. The next morning they find that something is wrong with their car, so Carly (Cuthbert) and Wade (Padalecki) go in search of help. They find Lester (Herriman), who takes them into the closest town, which is a ghost town. There, they meet Bo (Holt) who says he’ll fix their car, but he has much more sinister plans for them both.

The movie features actually likable characters. Wade is a huge fool, but even Paris Hilton was bad in this. The movie itself was disgusting, but in a good way. Its a solid remake with a hot cast, pretty perfect effects, a good soundtrack and a good ending. There were no boobs though – for shame!!

The killers were a little too invincible, but it was a fun watch. And also funny in parts. We’d watch it for Halloween.

Our score: 67.
