House of Wax

Horror movies suck. Usually. This one has some potential. I managed to watch it through without making silly comments all the time, noticing the bad acting, flawed script and/or clumsy actors. But then again, this is an australian horror movie.

The plot is simple. Teens come into town. There`s nobody here but the dynamic duo of artists who are bent on killing everybody. Teens run and scream. Teens get slaughtered. Two manage to kill the killers and escape. The end.

The details are the key. The avoidance of stereotypes. The dialogues which are not forced (they did not dodge that one completely, but what the hell…) and the story that, despite its simplicity, flows.

Something to watch in these hot summer nights.
