Hard to believe how boring a movie about plastinating people alive can be. Well, “plastinating” with wax, but you get the idea. The group of twenty-somethings is flat and mostly not even twodimensional, and you spend much more than 20 minutes with these jerks before anything at all happens. It sure doesn’t help that one of them is “played” by Paris Hilton and if you think “well, at least I can look foreward to her death”, you will be disappointed. She dies, but it takes a long time and isn’t too spectacular either. The level of stupidity in the first 2/3rds of the movie is around “not stupid enough to facepalm or care”, but it gets massively cranked up toward the end.
Have you ever found it stupid if screaming victims run up the stairs to escape the killer? Yes? Well, try running up the stairs in a house entirely made of wax that is on fire.
Famous Last Words: What a waste of time.
