James T. Callahan,
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

All UK versions feature the unrated version though 34 secs of cuts were applied to the cinema and video versions to reduce the whipping of Sarah and remove a dialogue reference to her first orgasm being due to the Marquis's whipping of her. The cuts were waived for the 2001 Columbia release. See more »
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.
