Product Description

Product Description

Zach Galligan, Deborah Foreman, Miles O'Keefe, Michelle Johnson. Waxwork (1988/97 min.) sets the scene inside a wax museum at midnight where teenagers viewing the figurines get sucked into the exhibits. In Waxwork II (1992/104 min.), Mark and Sarah, who survived that nightmare, travel back in time to find the evidence she needs to prove her innocence from a murderous crime that a dismembered hand from the wax museum committed. Color/R/fullscreen.

The main draw of these low-budget horror pictures is their unabashed affection for the great horror movies of the past. In Waxwork, Zach Galligan and his teen friends investigate a wax museum, where they are menaced by the re-animated tableaux. It's about as energetic as a wax dummy. The sequel is livelier, with Galligan now passing through a time portal that transports him to various classic film scenarios: Frankenstein, Dawn of the Dead, Alien, and, briefly and amusingly, Nosferatu (that's Drew Barrymore as one of the virgins cowering in bed). But why no parody of Vincent Price in House of Wax? It goes on too long, but there are weird celebrity guest stars aplenty (Bruce Campbell, David Carradine, Martin Kemp). Director Anthony Hickox helmed both offerings, without quite deciding how much humor was too much humor. In short, genre cultists are pretty much the exclusive audience here. --Robert Horton

Okay, where to start: The first movie is the better one of the two. Much better. The second movie doesn't have much going for it, and it is very ordinary and forgettable - but watchable nonetheless. Back to the first movie though: As far as a teenage horror movie goes, it fairs quite well. The concept of a waxwork museum (and how people get trapped in) is quite original and distinguishes itself nicely from the myriad of slasher flicks from the same era. Also, there is actually some character development - A rarity for this genre, in this era. The movie starts off as any good horror would and has the amazing David Warner (Company of Wolves, Tron, The Omen and countless more) playing the villain. It is surprising this movie could afford such an actor. However the movie degenerates into a very light-hearted, slightly comical "dénouement" from the mid point forward. Unfortunately, this drags down the movie somewhat - or at least, is not the promising horror it could have been at its onset.
One thing must be mentioned - and here is where Waxwork elevates itself to the status of a "hidden gem" in the '80s horror category: The soundtrack. This low-budget flick actually has a full custom made soundtrack that rivals any good Hollywood movie. It is an excellent, diverse soundtrack with music that so epitomizes that "eighties" sound, that it cannot be recreated. Classical scores are used in the tense standoffs, each song carefully crafted to convey a very deliberate emotion. Of such a high caliber is this soundtrack, it almost seems out of place for this movie. Seriously impressive, and "eighties" sounding down to a "T".

As a summary, this movie has a good story, become mediocre-yet-sufficient halfway through as it reveals itself.

Artisan does it again by releasing this great double feature DVD. If the original Waxowrk wasn't good enough, you also get its awsome sequel. For those of you who haven't see Waxwork, don't be fooled into thinking this is going to be a totally serious scary as hell movie. I is actually very toungue in cheek and has many funny moments. In the wake of Re-Animator, there were many immitations on mixing humor and gore, and Waxwork is one of the better films to come out of the mix. The sequel is almost just as good as the original and portrays many cameos that you will recognize (Bruce Campbell and Drew Barrymore to name a few). Two very entertaining film a cheap price. Now te downside. Originally when Waxwork was released on VHS, it was released in two seperate verions: an R-Rated and an Unrated. Sadly, the R-Rated version is the one present on the DVD which makes me worried that the Unrated will never be released. Another complaint is the picture quality. Artisan needs to start remastering these things. All their double feature DVD's are grainy. But that aside, don't let those downsides stop you from purchasing this DVD, its well worth it.

WAXWORK is what you would call a "guilty pleasure" of a movie. I saw it for the first time when it originally came out and remember it to this day as one of those rare straight to video movies that was actually worth remembering. What can I say? It's a fun movie.
As the story goes, a group of spoiled brat rich kids (including Zack Galligan ofGREMLINS fame and Dana Ashbrook who was the lead in RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD PART II) are invited to a special party at a new wax museum in their neighborhood. So, being curious they go and roam the museum unattended and conveniently get seperated from one another. One by one each of them accidentally steps into a display and are then transported directly into the scene and forced to play the part on display, fighting for his or her life. When they don't succeed, they then become a permanent part of the scene as the waxwork becomes their new home. This is where the fun comes in. The kids step in to every type of display you could imagine ranging from Dracula and The Wolf Man to the Marquis de Sade.
All in all, WAXWORK is campy and fun and that's, I believe, what makes it worth remembering. This movie, in no way shape or form, does it take itself seriously. Still, it isn't lacking on the gruesome effects. Some of the stuff during the Dracula segment is
pretty gory stuff. However, as I said before, the silm suceeds the most in it's camp value. I would suggest WAXWORK for true fans of the horror-comedy. While not as strong as
any of the EVIL DEAD films, the same type of humor is present and for the most part, it works.
WAXWORK II simply isn't as enjoyable as the first to me but it's still a good time and may even be a tad bit funnier.

What a deal for Waxwork fans. Both films on one disc. Now, granted they are both presented in full (fool) screen, and granted the original is the "rated" version (a little disappointing), but still....For fans, this set is priced far below expectations. Much appreciated.
The original, once the viewer is eased into the tone, is very funny and absurd. The end sequence is hilarious, as are most of the "vignettes" (although the rated version here does cut out some of the fun).
As for the sequel, well, there's Bruce Campbell. And a spoof on Dawn of the Dead. And an awful spoof on Aliens. And then the ending spirals into fantasy-insanity. But whatever, Waxwork fans know what they are getting into, and this is a very fine set for their collection.
