    What are they thinking? Teen appeal.

    The much revered Price version was itself a remake, so no concerns here. Actually, I'd go as far as to say most people seem to prefer the Price version over the original. Coincidently I watched the Wray version last night - how anyone can think the Price version is better is beyond me ;)

    I just want to see Paris Hilton burning, that's all. Preferably, a slow, painful burn, please. Thanks.
     
  6. I agree....how is she even called attractive?

    I agree completely about Paris, I mean her surgically molded face already reminds me of a wax figure.

    Anyone see the trailer for this one? They were showing it before CONSTANTINE. I had a very interesting response. When they first mentioned "House of Wax" in the trailer, I let out an audible snicker and leaned over to tell my friend that it was another fucking remake, but surprisingly the trailer is quite good. This appears to be a "remake in name only" for the most part, as from what I could tell from the trailer this has very little to do with Price's HOUSE OF WAX or MYSTERY OF THE WAX MUSEUM. In fact, if it was called something else, I wouldn't make the connection at all. I'm also surprised to say that this looks quite good, although if you ask me it looks like Paris Hilton still thinks she's making a sex video and has that "deer in headlights" stupid expression on her face. From the trailer, it looks like she is going to die... I don't see that as a spoiler, but rather as another reason to go see this.

    I echo your sentiments, John, I think this looks like it could really be good. Dark Castle movies have always had a degree of class, regardless of the quality of the film as a whole. Definitely a teeny bopper cast, but it looks as if many of them won't live to see the credits. Seeing the trailer for WAX was my favorite part about going to see CONSTANTINE. Looks good.

    I agree that the best part by FAR of my Constantine experience today was seeing the trailer for this. It at least looks like an honest to goodness R-rated horror movie with some gore!

    I concur that it actually looks to be pretty good, and creepy too. I really liked the look of the film, the wax figures, and the dog surprise. I've not been a big fan of Dark Castle's output thus far though. On another note, from viewing the trailer, I really like what Elisha Cuthbert did with her hair. She's ultra yummy either way, but that's a great look for her.

    This dosen't really look like the Price version of HOUSE OF WAX or it's model MYSTERY OF THE WAX MUSEUM at all.It does ,however,remind me somewhat of TOURIST TRAP,at least from the trailer.

    house of wax has received an "R" rating for horror violence, some sexual content and language. "horror violence" doesn't sound like it'll be gory unfortunately but atleast its R and not that PG-13 crap

    I would still like to know just what exactly "horror violence" is and how it requires special mention over just plain vanilla violence. :p
