Movie Review by Movie Addict
May 8th, 2009

Favorite Movie Quote: "Can't a girl get laid around here without being burned at the stake?"

First time writer/director Anthony Hickox pays homage to the classics of horror in this film where a waxwork museum comes to town, and a mysterious man invites some teens to come to a special showing at midnight. Once the visitors enter, the exhibits come alive -- which doesn't bode well for the libidinous teens.

It starts as a typical teen movie where the patter is boring, but soon changes as they enter the museum and, one-by-one, are drawn into the exhibits.

Is the first exhibit, we are treated to John Rhys-Davies (Gimli in LOTR) as a werewolf. He kinda looked like a gremlin, but he was ferocious enough. Goodbye Tony (Dana Ashbrook).

In the second exhibit, China (Michelle Johnson) falls prey to a vampire (Miles O'Keeffe).

Mark (Zach Galligan) and Sarah (Deborah Foreman) leave in time. She was almost taken by an exhibit featuring the Marquis de Sade (J. Kenneth Campbell). What is it with women and those puffy shirts? Too many Harlequin romances, maybe? They return later when they have figured out what is happening. It seems Mark's grandfather and assistant were involved in some black magic, and the assistant was the man in charge of the waxworks. Sarah succumbs to the Marquis de Sade and Mark is fighting zombies before he figures out the secret that will save them.

A final battle occurs when all 18 of the demons are let loose.

Will the world be saved? Lots of blood and gore in an exciting movie.
