I've always had a sort of fondness for this tale, the wax museum with overly realistic specimens. This time we have some buddies on a road trip who decide to camp out....near the house of wax! There is some fun death (including the demise of Miss Hilton) and the story is entertaining enough to make this an easy view. It's about the same as the original, but it's not so much creepy as it is energetic and visually appealing. They did better than I had expected and well I'm sure to watch it again...sometime! Still you can't beat the original for it's garish sets and Vincent Price.
