Before being sent to serve in Vietnam, two brothers and their girlfriends take one last road trip, but when they get into an accident, a terrifying experience will take them to a secluded house of horrors, with a chainsaw-wielding killer.
Six friends are on their way to a football game. They decide to camp out for the night and continue driving the next day. The next day the friends find that they're having car troubles, so two of the friends accept a stranger's ride into a small town named Ambrose. The main attraction in Ambrose is the House of Wax. Except something is not right in this town, the wax figures are so realistic and the whole town is deserted - except for two murderous twin brothers. The six friends must fight to survive and escape from being the next exhibits in the House of Wax.Written by
On 26 June 2004, a sound stage being used for the film burned to the ground during a test of special-effects equipment. The fire, started by a candle, destroyed a studio at Warner Bros Movie World on Australia's Gold Coast. One crew member was treated for burns to his arm, but no one else was injured. The smoke reached a nearby highway, which was not shut down. See more »

Random letters in the end credits of the movie begin to melt down from the screen as they appear. Also, some pairs of letters are joined, just like Bo and Vincent when they were born. See more »
The DVD features an alternate opening: A young woman, Jennifer (Emma Lung), (the woman who is sculpted into Miss Ambrose) is stranded on the road after her car breaks down. As she calls a towing company, Bo's truck drives up. She tries to signal him, but gets no response. Then, the truck speeds up. Jennifer tried to run, but Bo grabs her by the neck and throws her face-first into her windshield, instantly killing her. See more »
Creepy and gory horror movie professionally by the Spanish director Jaume Collet -Serra,
This is a chiller flick with grisly horror , genuine thrills and shocks . This eerie story contains bit good fun with grisly killing , relentless horror and lots of blood and guts . The chiller version packs scary chills and terrifying deaths such as a horrible stabbing , quartering and beheading . It deals with a group of unwitting teens are stranded near a strange wax museum and soon must fight to survive and keep from becoming the next exhibit . One by one, the entire group ends up falling prey to two murderous brothers , the creators of the town's local 'House of Wax'. Carly (Elisa Cuthbert) and Wade (Jared Padalecki) decide to go to the nearest town to get a new fan belt while the rest of the group attempts to go to the game , while Paige (Paris Hilton) and Nick (Chad Murray) stay on countryside making love . They discover that two brothers have expanded upon the area's main attraction , the House of Wax . They enter house of wax suddenly closes itself and they encounter trapped inside and soon supernatural creepiness begin frightening the hosts . Then they'll spend a ghastly time in the spooky house with killings-laden history .
This terrifying film contains chills , thrills , violent scenes and lots of blood and gore . From start to final the frantic horror images and fast movement is unstopped . It's a silly but amusing horror story and with abundant use of computer generator FX and special make-up in charge of Howard Berger , among others . The wax figures are the real stars of this production , being rightly realized by means of an excellent make-up and magnificent special effects . Some scenes are clumsily shot but the movie has some good moments here and there , the illogical parts in the argument are more than compensated for the excitement provided by the creepy wax models , eerie killers and many other things . Gorgeous actresses as Elisa Cuthbert and Paris Hilton along with young male actors as Brian Van Holt , Chad Murray , Jared Padalecki , Jon Abrahams accompanying efficiently to female starring . Colorful cinematography by cameraman Stephen H. Windon , using Steadicam . The musician John Ottman creates a stirring , moving soundtrack fitting to frenetic terror . Lavishly produced including spectacular scenes by the successful American producer Joel Silver who along with Robert Zemeckis and Gilbert Adler created ¨Dark House¨ , a production company specialized on terror genre ; both of them have produced successful terror movies dealing with eerie tales about horror , grisly killings and lots of blood and gore such as ¨House of haunted hill¨, ¨Return to house of haunted hill¨ , ¨Gothika¨, ¨Ghost ship¨, ¨House of wax¨ , Whiteout¨ , ¨Splice¨ , ¨The reaping¨ , ¨Orphan¨ , among others . The flick was compellingly directed by Jaume Collet-Serra . Collet is an expert director of terror movies as ¨Orphan¨, ¨House of wax¨ and for TV as ¨The river¨ , his greatest success was the action movie titled ¨Unknown¨ with Liam Neeson . Rating : Better than average, well worth seeing . The picture will appeal to terror fans .
