House of Wax
Not a bad movie. I was pleasantly surprised. I rented the movie, thinking it would suck. However, I found myself enjoying the flick. The movie is about a group of dumb teenagers getting stranded in a spooky town. People start dying and you know the rest.
The gore is intense and graphic. Every death is played out to the fullest shock value. However, the best death in the movie is that of moron rich girl Paris Hilton. The director seems to take great glee from her death, because the shot of her body lingers on the screen for a long time. I can’t tell you how much I liked that scene. People in this movie suffer greatly, (I loved the finger scene.)
The problems with the movie start with the really bad dialogue. It gets really difficult to listen to the teenagers talk to each other. While the story is sound, the plot gets a little shaky toward the end of the film. The last problem is that there’s no style to the movie. Hell even Nightmare on Elm Street had style. Not a smart or good flick, but fun overall.
Stuff to look far…
~Elisha Cuthbert is hot, wearing a wife-beater throughout the movie.
~Paris Hilton is dumb, but not nearly as irritating as her real self.
~Now we know what happens to road kill, yuck.
~The score wasn’t that bad either, actually it’s a step up from other recent horror movie scores.
~Wax figures always creep me out. I don’t like them as much as SUVs and Clowns.
