Love the concept and the look, but...
8 August 2015 | by theterror57See all my reviews

It's a great old-time movie concept, a reporter having to stay overnight in a scary place, in this case, a wax museum. It's been done to great comic and horror effect in films of the 1940's and 1950's. Haunted houses, wax museums, and spooky islands raked in the bucks by using such a durable concept. In the case of Wax, the effect doesn't work as well; the film never really grabs the audience, losing the audience by trying to focus on too many threads, and a drab, dull protagonist (who at times reminded me of Brad Dourif and William Katt). Wax could have been helped by those earlier films; most of them came in at 65 minutes or so. Wax needs much editing...and a better ending.
