About this movie

A bunch of college students are stranded in a small town where suffering for art takes on a whole new meaning in this tale of terror. Carly (Elisha Cuthbert) and her boyfriend, Wade (Jared Padalecki), have hit the road with a handful of their friends to attend a championship college football game; tagging along with them are Carly's bratty friend Paige (Paris Hilton, Carly's trouble-making twin brother Nick (Chad Michael Murray), and Blake (Robert Ri'chard), Paige's latest boy toy. While camping out for the night, the gang makes the mistake of getting on the wrong side of a mysterious local redneck, and the next morning they discover that Wade's car no longer works. As the others continue on to the big game, Carly and Wade make their way into the closest town, Ambrose, and discover it's all but deserted, except for a local tourist attraction, the House of Wax. However, it isn't long before they find out why the wax sculptures at the museum look so freakishly real, and discover a pair of murderous brothers are keen on making them part of the next exhibit. House of Wax is an in-name-only remake of the well-remembered 1953 3-D horror outing starring Vincent Price, which was in turn based on the 1933 picture Mystery of the Wax Museum.

I loved this when it came out, even though every horror fanboy & girl hated on it back then- "only made to see Paris Hilton die blah blah" yawn. Great to see that time has been kind to this awesome wax museum/creepy town slasher👍...and them young Cuthbert boobies!!😍😍

I'm using my cousin keith`s tablet and I've always been a fan of Paris Hilton and I think everything that doesn't involve Paris Hilton is a piece of $h!t so that's the only reason I like this movie because she's in it and this movie wasn't scary but Paris did on acting so I really enjoyed it

Absolutely loved it!! It's now a classic fav for me. It's just one of those ole school thrillers that hits home in all areas. That's the best way to describe it.
