Nightmare in cinema
1 October 1999 | by (In a wax museum) – See all my reviews

I must really like you folks to sit through $#%^ like this so you don't have to.As painful as it is I'll recap some of the plot.Excuse me if I start yawning.

Vince Renaud was Paragon Studios' top make up expert. He is in the middle of an affair with Paragons top female star. She is coveted by the studio head who built her career.When Renaud informs the jealous man at a party the studio boss sets Renauds face on fire.Instead of having the boss arrested Renaud opts for a bygones be bygones out look.Yeah, I can understand that.

Actually Renaud is crazier than a loon and has worked out an evil plan of revenge. After opening up a wax museum Renaud perfects a serum to put people into suspended animation.Then he starts kidnapping and "freezing" actors from Paragon Studios. The actors are put on display as wax figures. They need a shot of the old serum every once in a while to keep them rigid.Good thing these folks are stiffs as actors.

Renaud (who runs around in a strange outfit complete with a short cape)commits a few murders.One very unnerving scene has him motoring around town with a woman he just killed. He's planting a few kisses on her as well. YUCK!Of course the Police are absolute morons (led by Scott "I have no talent" Brady).The movie crawls on to an absolute horesbleep ending.

To say this movie reeks is an understatement.Cameron Mitchell (Renaud) chews up the scenery rolling his eyes and whispering stupid lines like"I love to hear you scream!It excites me!"So glad somebody is excited about this waste of film.The acting is horrible, the plot & dialogue just screams of incompetence and the director has no clue.

Your time would be better spent dry shaving a pit bull.Hold your nose and run from this garbage!
