I was really stoked about seeing this movie, until...







I found out that Paris Hilton is in it. No thanks. She's got a hot body, but that bird out in my backyard protecting two eggs has a bigger brain than does Paris Hilton. Comments.

Yeah I can't get into it either. Based on having seen her other performance on film I'm afraid I would just be let down again. :)

Huh... doesn't matter to me; if it's a horror film, I'll see it.

^^That reason alone makes it worthy of a rental. But I am not going to paid $10 to see it in theatres.

Hottest woman in Hollywood, hands down. Just my opinion of course.

Edit: Oops, I meant Eliza Dushku. Cuthbert isn't bad either though. ;)

I saw the original House of Wax here.

They won't show movies made after 65, the original was 3D, had to wear little glasses.


No hot chicks... just Vincent Price and some daggers

Hey Zombie, I love horror films too, and have seen most of them, even the horrible ones. I can only assume from your name that you are big into the zombie genre, are you looking forward to George Romero's new Land of the Dead film? I think it comes out on June 24th or thereabout.

Romero is hella-swank. I'm so (italicized for emphasis) glad, now, that he didn't end up directing Resident Evil. Insofar as the new film goes... it's not highly-budgeted if I remember correctly, but George does good work on a shoestring.

Ever see Martin?

This version of "House of Wax" isn't supposed to be much like the Vincent Price version, from what I'm hearing. (And I'm glad, because Vincent Price rawks in my book.)

I, for one, can't wait for "Land of the Dead." I'm excited they moved up the release date. :party:

Anyone else here seen that video of Paris Hilton (it might not be here, though) on "all four's" with a stuffed bunny, and spinning on some turning display case? She does look hot in that video. :devil: Still, I can't stand that twisted-face-winking she does for the camera. Her comments about realizing early on that she could just buy animals (instead of growing up to be a veterinarian) really piss me off. Not only do I think that she sucks as a celebrity in every imaginable way (if it weren't for her money, she would be a nobody), but I don't think it is fair that people can be born rich and have to do nothing for the rest of their lives.

If a horror film contains any sequence that combines the grotesque with the surreal, then the film has done its job. "House of Wax" has two such sequences. The first graphically details the process of embalming a still-living body in wax -- the knife wounds and repairs, the trussing and securing of the body and the spraying of hot wax on an incapacitated person unable to scream. The second comes when a well-meaning friend discovers his buddy's waxed body and understandably tries to claw away the wax coating. Only by doing so, he is actually removing epidermis to expose blood, tissues and muscle.

Acting is similarly routine, with the glorious exception of Hilton, who is so bad she steals the show. Indeed, the best moment in the film occurs when the filmmakers make it clear that the true horror experienced by Hilton's character is when she finds herself without a working cell phone.

I dunno if any of you have seen the "series" that MTV has recently aired regarding the making of the House of Wax movie. It basically follows the four main actors around the set during production, etc...A real fluff piece.

Anyway, I caught about two minutes of this the other night and I could not believe what a low-rent diva that Chad Michael Murray comes off as...You should have heard him barking at PA's, cussing out the director...I mean acting like a COMPLETE little Bee-yotch! To my knowledge, I have only seen him in one other movie (small role in the Freaky Friday remake).

I have no earthly idea where some of these idiot actors get such a feeling of entitlement...

Yeah, see... I couldn't even tell you who this is.

Yeah, see... I couldn't even tell you who this is.Me neither before the other night. I just got his name from the movie website...hopefully, one of the RZ members living in CA can find him and deliver a "beat down."

Oops. I seem to have facilitated this by accidentally posting his picture:

I have never seen Martin which is a crime considering how much I like Romero's other work. The budget is pretty small for "Land" if I remember right, somewhere around 20 millionish? Still compared to what he had to work with in the prvious zombie films I think he should be able to pull off some great stuff with that kind of budget. Add to that the fact that they filmed in Canada so we got the conversion rate on the Canadian dollar and I think they were able to comfortably make the film he wanted to make. Hopefully the MPAA won't make him slash it to death for the big screen.

Yeah Rosie, I'm really excited that they moved up the release date, I was going crazy thinking I would have to wait until October.

Next RedsZone outing: Me Rosie and Zombie on June 24th to catch the matinee showing of Land of the Dead, who else is in? lol

Yeah, but the beauty of that movie is that even though the main character dies, there is still a sequel opportunity! :laugh:

Well, I went to see this the other night. :) I was expecting something along the teen-horror forumla of the late 90s - one of those "knowingly self-aware" films that can only be called horror because of the gore. It wasn't that, but it wasn't particularly scary, either. The storyline was weak, and there wasn't very much gore, either. However, the set-piece finale at the end of the film was pretty wicked. :)

The ending alone doesn't justify the nine dollar ticket, though. In retrospect, I should have seen Kingdom of Heaven... the film wasn't particularly good or particularly bad, it was just there. I can't really recommend this film to anyone.
