27. House of Wax

Release Year: 2005

Director: Jaume Collet-Serra

Starring: Elisha Cuthbert, Chad Michael Murray, Paris Hilton, Brian Van Holt, Jared Padalecki

House of Wax is not to be confused with the 1953 release of the same name. The 2005 version sees a group of six friends taking a road trip to attend the big college football game but when they have car problems, they’re forced to abandon their plans for the game and head to a deserted town to get a working fan belt.

The town is a ghost town save for two demented brothers who have been adding to the town’s wax museum by killing people and pouring hot wax over their bodies to preserve them in the museum. When they encounter troubles from the town mechanic they realize the people they thought were helping them are actually trying to end their lives and make them the new attractions in the wax museum.

The movie has some great chase scenes and suspenseful moments as well as some really awful acting from Paris Hilton that produces some comedic relief when you’re not terrified.
