5.0 out of 5 stars La Maison De Cire Aug. 27 2012
J'ai écouter ce film quand j'était plus jeune, il y a quelques jours je lai réécouter et je ne suis pas déçus par ce film. L'histoire se tien et il y a des ''PUNCH'' jusqu’à la fin. C'est vraiment un bon film d'horreur (Un des meilleur dans les années 2000) Je vous le conseille fortement.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not very scary. Nov. 5 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's not a bad movie, the story line is fine and the acting is okay, but it bugged the crap out of me that Paris Hilton was in the movie. I mean seriously Paris Freaking Hilton?!

4.0 out of 5 stars Much better than I expected Aug. 25 2006
By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
It's best if you don't look at House of Wax as a remake of the Vincent Price classic, as the two have very little in common. Still, it's hard not to go into this movie with a slightly negative attitude, given that whole "remake" stigma and the fact that Paris Hilton plays a significant part in the story. Personally, I pretty much expected to be disappointed. The first half hour didn't do anything to change my perspective, really. You've got a stereotypical group of young people camping out in the woods on their way to a big football game, and you eventually start asking yourself, "Wasn't there supposed to be a whole House of Wax thing in this movie?" There's a menacing truck kind of thing, but that's about as scary as cutting your fingernails. Still, you do get to know the characters a little bit - not that you would really want to know most of them. The only interesting character is Carly (Elisha Cuthbert), a seemingly smart young lady with an actual future. She's unhappy because her friend Paige (Paris Hilton) and her loverboy invited her brother Nick (Chad Michael Murray) and his loser friend along on the trip, as it sort of puts a cramp in her lifeless style of her boyfriend Wade (Jared Padalecki). Nick's supposedly a tough guy with a prison record, living up to his label as the evil half of the Jones twins.

Nothing really happens until Wade wakes up to find his car has been damaged. While their friends head off to the big game, Wade and Carly make their way to the nearby town of Ambrose, home of the once-famous Trudy House of Wax, in search of a fan belt. They should have known things just weren't right when they found the town basically deserted, with Whatever Happened to Baby Charlotte? listed on the marquee of the local movie house.

Wow, do the kids in this movie really want to die. There are six college students traveling in two cars to a football game and they decide to spend the night in a field near a small town in the middle of nowhere. When a pickup truck shows up and the driver refuses to turn off the lights, get out of the truck, or say anything, one of the kids breaks a headlight and the pickup backs away. So, do the kids pack up and run away? No, they do not. They go to sleep. But, hey, why not? What is the worst thing that can happen to you in the middle of the night if you are sleeping in tents in the middle of a field after you tick off one of the locals?

Actually, the answer to that is not much relatively speaking, given that this is the opening act of this 2005 splatter flick. If you think that Nick Jones (Chad Michael Murray) has a death wish that is nothing compared to Wade (Jared Padalecki), who establishes what could be a record for going into the wrong places in a horror movie. The only other contender for that crown would be the last pair left alive in the film, one of whom is obviously going to be Elisha Cuthbert's Carly Jones, sister to Nick and girl friend to Wade. This is not just because her name appears first in the credits but also because she is clearly privileged in the film's opening as the character most likely to still be alive by the end credits (plus she knows that you are only limited to three strikes when it comes to baseball or felony convictions). The other potential young corpses in the group are Paige Edwards (Paris Hilton, who obviously has great potential in this regard) and her boyfriend, Blake (Robert Ri'chard), and Dalton Chapman (Jon Abrahams), who is so goofy that you know if he dies it is going to be either really gross or a big fake out.

I liked 'House Of Wax' but it wasn't all that good as the commercial put it out to be. I thought that I would be screaming out of my mind in the theatre, although I did get scared but it was more of a spine tingling feeling but the movie is still GREAT :D.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible excuse for another re-make Nov. 17 2005
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.
