This movie was terrible. Dumb, Boring and Stupid Waste of time - Waste of Electrical power.
It would be a waste of money to buy. On watchable best describes this movie. I fast forwarded all the way.

If nothing else, House Of Wax certainly did manage to reinforce my perspective on the demented reality of America's on-going love affair with its out-of-control, over-the-top, movie psycho-killers.

With House Of Wax being a 2 hour affair, it took pretty close to half that time for this predictable, little picture to get to any of the worthwhile horror-stuff.

Prior to that point it was all just the usual cliched nonsense where we meet the chosen group of young adults (selected for the up-coming slaughter) and have to endure listening to the bullshit of their tiresome personal dramas, such as unwanted pregnancy and the dealings with one's "bad-boy" brother.

Set during a full moon (natch), House Of Wax was a painfully predictable "seen-it-all-before" horror story.

This one's story was so preposterous (where the psycho-killers had been getting away with their deranged doings for years and years) that all one could do was roll their eyes to the ceiling (over the sheer inanity of it all) and just hope to hell that a sequel wasn't somewhere in the making.
