May 6, 2005 Release, House of Wax

May 6, 2008

Sadly, no, this is not the Vincent Price 1953 classic horror film, but instead, a loose copy of the original, and when I say loose, I mean, Paris Hilton is the star.

A group of friends, en route to a football game, decide to camp out in the woods in a random dark area after being accosted by some sort of truck. Hmm. Ok. According to IMDB, Carly Jones (Elisha Curtberth), her bad boy brother Nick (Chad Michael Murray), her boyfriend Wade (Jared Padalecki), and her friends Paige (Paris Hilton) and her boyfriend Blake (Robert Richard) and Dalton (Jon Abrahams) are all trapped in a small town stuck in the 1960’s after the fanbelt on the car mysteriously breaks down. The only thing that is interesting about the town, besides the eerie lack of people, is a mysterious house of wax. The friends join the museum exhibit one-by-one.

The most frightening thing about the film is there are many little towns that look frighteningly familiar on the small roads in Mississippi. Otherwise, the filmmakers dole out a predictable teen slasher film. Still, its worth one viewing for some of the suspense filled moments towards the end.

Paris Hilton won the Razzie award for worst supporting actress yet seemed to draw the teen crowd with wins for the MTV movie award best frightening performance and Teen Choice awards for best horror scream. Chad Michael Murray also won for choice movie actor and the film won best thriller film.
