I hated it. It was stupid and clichèd. I'll stick with the original. You know it's a bad deal when Paris Hilton is the better actor in it (especially whne Cuthbert is in it). The whole was a ripoff of "Tourist Trap" anyway. And Chad Michael Murray needs to knock off the tough guy shit, he's a total wuss. Katie Holmes could kick his ass.

I took my mom to see this for Mother's Day last year...yeah my mom loves horror too. Obviously this film has nothing to do with the original, other then sharing the same name..but it was an entertaining film, with some great speical effects. I really don't care for Paris Hilton, I went into the movie with an opinion already formed about her, but she really wasn't bad in this film. Yeah, its cheesy and acampy...but it still was entertainment.

The lack of Vincent Price is what really got me. I hated it.

It was okay purely because it had some good gore and effects. Go with the original, its a much better movie

You know, for what it was I liked it. Actually bought it when it hit DVD; call it a moment of confusion on my part. I was pleasantly surprised though and only mildly regret the purchase. Like many others the original was great - I've been a vincent Price fan since I was five. There was some unexpected stuff in the new one, and the opening was pretty cool and the actual house of wax was awesome. Maybe not a buy, but worth a rent.
