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

Several names of the characters were changed from the initial shooting script for "Waxwork". Tony was given a last name, Masters, which was left out of the film. Mr. Lincoln's midget butler, "Junior", was originally called "Hans", and Lincoln's tall servant, "Hans", was called "Lurch" because he was described in the script as a Lurch-type character.

Near the beginning of the movie, James and Gemma chicken out of attending the Waxwork tour with their friends and are not mentioned to the staff inside. However, near the end of the film, the butler Junior calls James and tells him to arrive at the Waxwork with Gemma at midnight to meet their friends Mark and Sarah. See more »

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 »
This movie has always been one of my favorite eighties movies. I love the eighties feel it has to it and I really like the plot. I recently purchased this movie after finding it in a discount bin. The acting does leave something to be desired. However, I think the story line more than makes up for it. The special effects are cheesy, compared to todays standards. Considering the time period, its still a pretty decent film. It is definitely worth watching. As long as you keep in mind, it was made in the eighties. You might find it interesting if your into low budget, grade B horror films. Also, don't expect it to be like House of Wax. They are two different films entirely.
