mv5bnda4nzg1njq2nv5bml5banbnxkftztcwmdywntgymq__v1_ux182_cr00182268_al_Review (Spoils):  A group of friends were on their way to a football game and they come across car trouble (suprise!) so they end up in a nearby town called Ambrose which is known for its House of Wax. Well the town is actually pretty deserted and they learn the story of the Sinclairs that use to run the House of Wax from the friendly mechanic. This leads also that the teens already pissed someone off the night before while camping and it could of possibly lead the car issue and now all of them slowly disappearing and getting killed.

Another remake to hit the site and yet another film is not that great. Annoying teens from Hollywood and some typical trash such as broken down vehicles and strangers that do not talk but come back and cause shit and of and the charming stranger from the strange town that seems too friendly. Lots of melted wax on skin, some stabbings, a couple slices, a metal pole impaling (yeah…cheered on this one) and strange storyline. This was too polished by Hollywood and was such a mix bag from the original.

Rating: First off you known your horror films are going to suck if you have Paris Hilton in it…come on. That tips the bar of being a remake to begin with; even the beautiful Elisha Cuthbert cannot save the film from that. Poor Vincent Price would be rolling in his grave.

Captivity (2007)

Captivity (2007)

Country: USA

Director: Roland Joffe

Main Stars: Elisha Cuthbert, Daniel Gillies, Pruitt Taylor Vince

Storyline: A man and woman wake up trapped in a cellar.


Review (Spoils): Jennifer Tree (Elisha Cuthbert) is a beautiful top American model and she has someone who has been keeping a close eye on her. After a charity event in Soho is drugged and kidnapped. She wakes up in a cell where she is being tormented and tortured. Later in time she finds out she is not alone and not the only captive. She teams up with another man (Daniel Gillies) as they try to find their way out of this hell.

We have some flashback video tapes, tooth pulling, drugs, rape and twisted but very noticeable storyline. This film lacks a lot, scares, real gore and even a decent storyline where you can guess within the first 30min. If it wasn’t for Elisha Cuthbert this film would have hit rock bottom. The film was not shocking like Saw or Hostel. Yes we have the babe Elisha Cuthbert but other than that the film was very lacking and the acting was not that great.

Rating: Have I seen worse? Fuck yeah so it’s not a total waste but there is way better capture the hot lady and torture her films. But the script was blotched and it just was not overly interesting. At first it started off well and then the truth came out and the cheesiness over took the film. Too bad because Elisha Cuthbert could of did well with this type of horror flick.
