Crop And Save
House of Wax (2005)
There's not really any spoilers in here but I wasn't sure so I put the title up anyways.
After seeing all the horror movies getting pumped out lately and getting more and more disappointed with each release I was a little sketchy on seeing this one.
Has anyone noticed that every horror movie that comes out now is the same damn thing!? We'll this one is a little different.
The movie starts off great with a scene from the past, using a grainy camera and old styles it instantly looks like an old horror movie. Shortly after-wards we are quickly shown the stars of the movie and away we go. Unlike most horror movies of late this one has a style of its own, just when you expect something boring and cliché to happen something fresh happens instead. A few of the characters are built up well and its not to hard to take a liking to them, making it more intense when their lives are threatened. Also finally we are presented with some kids with brains, I dunno if I'm the only one but I get so sick off seeing someone in trouble taking out the killer momentarily and fleeing only to be attacked again 5 minutes later.. um hello how about killing them they just tried to kill you... "Oh no I'd rather try run away in some house I don't know and wait for someone to help me"
The special effects in the movie aren't over done, its not a real bloody film, you see just enough to let you know people are hurting. The wax through out the movie looks awesome, all very well done.
Overall I'd say the movie moves along quite nicely, you can get emerged easily and before you know it its all over. I wasn't bored through any parts of the movie which I can't say about other horror movies of late, it's not a classic but its the best thats come our recently.
Now to go watch Alone in the Dark /me prepares for disappointment.
