Movie Summary

Director:
Jaume Collet-Serra
Released:
2005
Rating:
R
Master horror producers Joel Silver and Oscar-winning Robert Zemeckis helm this retelling of the classic 1950's Vincent Price terror tale! Chad Michael Murray ("A Cinderella Story," TV's "One Tree Hill") and Paris Hilton ("Raising Helen") are part of a group of college students with car trouble who find themselves stranded in the seemingly abandoned town of Athelston, Iowa. Unfortunately, there are still two people left - demented twin brothers who enjoy encasing their victims in hot wax, and setting them up as wax museum exhibits. Also stars Elisha Cuthbert ("Love Actually," TV's "24") and Jared Padalecki ("Cheaper by the Dozen," TV's "Gilmore Girls").

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Crust

    Related to the 1953 Vincent Price film in name, embalming technique and Warner Bros. pedigree only, the new House of Wax is a dreary, predictable tale.

    Variety Scott Foundas

    Direly predictable, with candle-drip pacing and a pervasive unpleasantness.
