A waxwork museum comes to town, and a mysterious man invites some teens to come to a special showing at midnight. Once inside, while viewing different exhibits, the scenes come alive and the viewer is sucked into the story being portrayed.Written by

During the scene in the basement of the vampire's mansion, crew on the sets said that it was "The bloodiest thing ever put to the screen". Much of the gore in the scene was cut by the MPAA. See more »
Near the beginning of the film, a moving shadow of a microphone stand is visible on Sarah's dress when she and China first talk to Mr. Lincoln in front of the Waxwork. See more »
[reading the first bit of the essay he had his maid write for him on 'Dictators']
'The Trouble with Dictators'. I think dictators are the bad people. They have the shouting voices, and the small moustaches.

WAXWORK is a really fun, well-done, stylish horror flick. It's not very serious for a horror movie but it's not a total horror-comedy either. It's loaded with cool monsters and famous horror villains (Werewolves, Vampires, Mummies, etc. etc. etc.) There was some other rad looking monsters/evil dudes I didn't recognize, but what was with that goofy @$$ African warrior mothaf#%ka? I watched the uncensored version and although it did have some really bloody parts (especially the vampire scene) I gotta admit i expected a bit more as far as gore. Even so it's still a very good monster flick. If it woulda been a little bloodier and gorier it probably would have received a 9 out of 10 and maybe even a solid 10. I'd recommend this one to not only fans of cheesy '80s horror like myself but any horror fans, just don't expect it to be hella serious.
