Movie Review by BillyBob
November 27th, 2012

VERY DRIP-DRIP-DRIPPY HORROR!

Favorite Movie Quote: "Let's go follow the smell."

Yep. House Of Wax certainly did reinforce my perspective on the demented reality of Hollywood's on-going love affair with its out-of-control, over-the-top, psycho-maniacs. It sure did.

With its 2 hour running time, it took pretty close to half that frickin' time for this predictable, little picture to get to any of the supposedly "worthwhile" horror-stuff.

Prior to that point it was all just the usual cliched nonsense where we meet the chosen group of young adults (selected for the up-coming slaughter) and have to endure having to listen to the absolute bull of their tiresome, little personal dramas, such as unwanted pregnancy and the dealings with one's "bad-boy" brother.

Set during a full moon (Oh! My! Now, isn't that original!!??), House Of Wax was a painfully predictable "seen-it-all-before" horror flick.

This one's story was so preposterous (where the psycho-maniacs had been getting away with their deranged doings for years and years) that all one could do was roll their eyes to the ceiling (over the sheer inanity of it all) and hope to hell that a frickin' sequel wasn't anywheres in the making.

Saw this - movie

The best part was when they killed Paris Hilton, something we all secretly would love to do. Other from that, I didn't even bother t review it, and that's saying something!

Say! How about you writing a celebrity review of Miss Hilton? It could be the next best thing to actually killing her.

I don't know, buddy - I may need a shower afterwards!

Besides I have some real actors coming up in interviews next week.
