A group of friends on their way to a college football game falls prey to a pair of murderous brothers in an abandoned small town. The friends discover that the psychotic siblings have expanded the area's main attraction--the House of Wax--and created an entire town filled with the wax-coated corpses of unlucky visitors. Now the group must find a way out before its members also become permanent exhibits in the House of Wax. Remake of the Warner Bros. horror classic, which was the first release of a 3-D film by a major studio.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Bearing little resemblance to the 1953 original, House of Wax is a formulaic but better-than-average teen slasher flick.

Bloody slasher film is nothing like the original.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie contains repeated gross-out horror images, including skin ripping off faces; bodies subjected to stabbing, chopping, and piercing; girls screaming and weeping; shotguns blasting; deer carcasses rotting; bugs crawling; even a finger being cut off with wire cutters. The killers keep fetuses in jars, blame their mother, and target boys and girls equally, though Paris Hilton is the only victim to strip to her red bra and panties and give her boyfriend (off-screen, but plainly indicated) oral sex. The killer superglues one girl's mouth shut, and she cuts it open so it bleeds and she can summon help; characters drink, smoke, and use harsh language.
