Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

Exhibits apparently come to life and commit murder in a very ordinary variation on the wax museum theme, with a mundane explanation for all the creepy goings-on. Poor scripting and direction doom the pedestrian plot further, although the cast - studded with an amazing array of intrepid old-timers - is enough of an attraction in itself to make this tired House of Wax retread worth watching.
