80's Horror Movie News & Reviews!

Wednesday, April 7, 2010


"Sex without fear & pain is like food without taste" ...a quote from the Marquis de Sade, made by a character in WaxWork. If only the rest of the movie were as interesting as that quote.
When a new Waxwork museum opens, in what appears to be a residential neighborhood, curious teenagers are invited by the ominous curator to visit that evening. Once inside, the teens find themselves transported into living, breathing versions of the wax scenes. This, of course, has dire consequences.

Starring Deborah Forman, from Valley Girl and April Fools Day, the film plays out in a series of vignettes - each character entering a different world. We meet warewolves, vampires, mummies, and zombies, among others, and the film draws heavily from multiple horror classics.

Though the film has somewhat of a cult following among horror enthusiasts, I can't say this one is my cup of tea. The latest Artisan release of the DVD includes a double feature with Waxwork II: Lost in Time. With a total running time of 3 hours 21 minutes for both films, I'm cutting my losses with just one.
