  1. This movie gives it to you, as no movie has in some years. Okay, if that's not your part of the swamp, don't go into it.
  2. A sturdy and cohesive representative of what tends to be a flimsy and tawdry B-movie genre. It even has a moral: People who live in wax houses shouldn't start fires.
  3. The set design is fairly elaborate by the standards of the genre, and the victims don't die in precisely the order you might expect, but everything else goes pretty much according to formula, including a last-minute plot twist that opens the creaky door to a sequel.

    House of Wax is not a good movie but it is an efficient one, and will deliver most of what anyone attending House of Wax could reasonably expect, assuming it would be unreasonable to expect very much.
  5. 38
    For Hilton haters, the stupid and grotesque remake of House of Wax will only stoke their schadenfreude.

    Direly predictable, with candle-drip pacing and a pervasive unpleasantness.

    Elisha Cuthbert é fenomenal dando uma super performance gata,Chad Michael Murray também é ótimo,Jared Padalecki é incrível E Brian Van Holt é excelente como Serial Killer.
    Roteiro excelente de Carey Hayes e Chad Hayes.
    Jaume Collet Serra arrasa como diretor desse puta filme.
    Um filme de terror perfeito com muitos sustos e cenas incríveis de ação.

    House of Wax is a great horror ..

    I honestly think this amazing film, a screenplay correct, that holds you from beginning to end, with frightening scenes, not denying that the strengths of the film are: Art Direction Soundtrack and makeup, I think it really is a film that deserves to be seen and revised and I'm very happy that Warner has made ​​the continuation of this movie, because it would not work.

    HORRIBLE MOVIE! I never seen the original but this movie is bad, just the main point in travel, they left to go to the super bowl which they HORRIBLE MOVIE! I never seen the original but this movie is bad, just the main point in travel, they left to go to the super bowl which they didn't even have tickets to and if they scalpt tickets they would be REALLY expensive. but they make it far enough to a town they never heard of before(well two of them do) and the others go on even farther to the super bowl and then deside to turn around and go back after being stuck in trafic on a highway which there is no turn around while people in the back seat are sayin "TURN AROUND, LETS GO BACK!" STUPID!!! so they do turn back, retarded. and the other part i remember is when those 2 first go into the wax house and then she see's something outside in the window looking in and gets freaked out, and he goes outside to see what/who it was, it's a free country, people can be outside, and besides that whoever it was, they were just looking in the window, no actually walking into the place and touchin and metting a little wax. and she stays INSIDE the wax house while he goes outside to see what it was outside, f-ing stupid.
