Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
Master horror producers Joel Silver and Oscar-winning Robert Zemeckis helm this retelling of the classic 1950's Vincent Price terror tale! Chad Michael Murray ("A Cinderella Story," TV's "One Tree Hill") and Paris Hilton ("Raising Helen") are part of a group of college students with car trouble who find themselves stranded in the seemingly abandoned town of Athelston, Iowa. Unfortunately, there are still two people left - demented twin brothers who enjoy encasing their victims in hot wax, and setting them up as wax museum exhibits. Also stars Elisha Cuthbert ("Love Actually," TV's "24") and Jared Padalecki ("Cheaper by the Dozen," TV's "Gilmore Girls").

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: When the cast starts wondering where the roadkill is, someone says, 'Follow the smell.' Good tip: That's how you'll know where Wax is playing.
Rotten: Filled with the usual contemporary horror staples, most notably lots of rusty torture implements and cellphones that tend to scurry mischievously out of reach just as the villain bears down on his prey.
Rotten: A remake in title only, this House of Wax is mostly inspired by The Twilight Zone and the Friday the 13th movies.
Rotten: The movie would have been creepier if it had shut us inside the museum, and given us more creative wax-based killings instead of revisiting familiar slasher-flick stuff.
on a budget
