  • The characters are about as intelligent as their waxen alter egos, making it impossible to care too much about what happens to them. ( Read More )
  • Expect lots of Slasher Movie 101 and putatively clever jibes at a certain high profile hotel heiress (involving a video camera, of course, and a box full of cell phones that dont work). ( Read More )
  • E Film Critic

  • House of Wax doesnt lose its hold on the viewer once its mystery is revealed. ( Read More )
