House of Wax

I was really looking forward to this release, having seen the original House of Wax when it came out at much too young an age and it scared the crap outta me. Our young stars in this version are well and truly up to the task of being sexy young horror actors in a pretty neat movie. 

The story if you didnít know if is what happens to a group of kids when they get trapped in a house of wax (you know, like Madam Tussaudís) but in this House of Wax, all the showcases are murder victims with wax poured over them!  

The pacing of this movie is fantastic and the House of Wax itself is certainly a sight to behold. Itís always tough to go into detail when it comes to a horror movie as almost any plotline or commentary during the review is going to give away a scare or wreck something. Suffice to say that the movie truly delivers and presents you with some really tense moments as the viewer. 

The quality of both the audio and video is excellent and a credit to the format. The extras are also worth exploring with the BRoll commentary a lot of fun, especially when you see Paris running up stairs. There are also some hijinks with a pole but once again Iíd be wrecking it for you. 

I really like this style of horror. There is a nice mix between the hot young stars and the violence that takes place. The actors in this film do a convincing job in a not so demanding film that you will enjoy nonetheless. Kudos to the crew on this film for an absolute treat of a movie to watch. 

I highly recommend this one before Halloween!
