The newest 'HOUSE OF WAX' movie is a surprisingly effective slasher movie that doesn't hold back on the gore (in particular, this one scene that involves a road kill pit). It has the usual scenario of a group of young adults traversing in an area they aren't supposed to-and in this case it's a creepy, secluded town that has this strange Wax Museum, which is literally made out of wax. The movie does keep you guessing as to what's going to happen next. It's sort of 'The Hills Have Eyes' meets 'Friday the 13th'. One of the insane brothers (yes, there is more than one killer) does a great Bill Paxton impersonation. Most surprising of all is that Paris Hilton can actually act. I was kind of hoping to bash her performance. Oh well. When her graphic death scene happens, though, most of the entire theater audience was clapping-and I haven't seen that reaction in a while. HOUSE OF WAX is one of the best horror movies I've seen yet in 2005.
