Scream Factory’s latest offering in horror is the 2005 sadly, overlooked slasher, House of Wax. The film is entirely solid and is good to see come around for another go to find a new audience. This was another offering from Dark Castle Entertainment the folks that brought us Ghost Ship and House on Haunted Hill.
The film starred Elisha Cuthbert, Chad Michael Murray, Brian Van Holt, Paris Hilton, Jared Padalecki, Jon Abrahams and Robert Ri’chard and was a serious amount of fun when it was released in theaters. However, at the time there was a bit of slasher slump and nobody was willing to show up, at least not in the masses.
The synopsis for House of Wax goes like this:
When their car breaks down on a road trip, six college friends are sidetracked into an eerie backwoods town. Curiosity gets the better of them when they are intrigued by its macabre House of Wax. They soon find out that the town is not what it seems, and that they must find their way out before they fall victim to its ghoulishly inventive killers.
The House of Wax special features go like this:
