House of Wax : Movie Review

House of Wax (2004)Sitting in a darkened theater watching House of Wax, I felt like it was the 1980s and Jason was on the loose again. From its lobotomized characters to its carefully choreographed "boo!" moments to its blood-and-gore spatter-fest, this movie is a throwback to the era of the slasher film, when the success of a production was measured not by the quality of the script, but by the quantity of viscera. House of Wax gets high marks for its body count and the innovative ways in which its participants are dispatched. It is also notable for having some of the most moronic protagonists ever to populate a horror film. These people are Leprechaun dumb.
