House of Wax (2005)

We are not here to see Paris die but we are here to discuss Jaume Collet-Serra's mean and stylish 2005 remake House of Wax (and yes, we know it has more in common with Tourist Trap)! Wanna see what happens when a really dumb slasher script gets a $40 million budget thrown at it? This is it!

Join us as we discuss the film's controversial "See Paris Die!" marketing campaign (and the emotional toil it may have taken on Ms. Hilton) before going all in on this 2005 time capsule that fell in that awkward period for horror between post-Scream slashers and torture porn.

Plus: twincest, Penny Can, sexy super glue blowing, a fiery finale and an unexpected(?) queer reading of Chad Michael Murray's Nick.

Oh, and here's the link to the 5-part documentary series Movie Life: House of Wax that aired on MTV the month before the film was released. It's...something.
