House of Wax
Source: Catholic News Service
Repulsive horror film about a group of college students (including Chad Michael Murray and Paris Hilton) who, while on a road trip, find themselves stranded in a backwater town, where they fall prey to a pair of homicidal twins (both played by Brian Van Holt) intent on turning their unsuspecting victims into wax figures that are a little too lifelike for comfort. With its formulaic plot and vapid performances, director Jaume Collet-Serra's bloody re-imagining of the 1953 Vincent Price classic quickly melts into a stomach-churning mess of slasher cliches and sadism, which packages human debasement as popcorn fare. Gratuitous gruesome violence and gore, torture images, some sexual situations and humor, including a striptease, teen smoking and drinking, as well as recurring rough and crude language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
