Welcome to the world of exploitation. If you want to see House of Wax, please watch the original of the film or the second version featuring Vincent Price - at least the two originals had a decent story.
This film is a sad excuse for, yet, another teen movie. Big names, pretty people, stupid ideas, stupid lines and crap. A million big title, terrible bands, with a few exceptions, including Interpol, this film is a waste of time.
As a fan of the genre and the original two versions, I must adamantly beg you to not bother. Don't dull your mind by watching this film. Watch the Texas Chainsaw Massacre or the Dawn of the Dead re-makes, but don't watch the House of Wax, The Haunting, House on Haunted Hill or The Amityville Horror. Watch the originals when talent was more important than looks.
At least the aforementioned were interesting and stuck to their original intent. This film seems to ignore it's predeccesors and plan to dominate the world in true ridiculous Hollywood-fashion.
