Guilty Pleasures - House of Wax (2005)
/

Welcome once again to our ongoing Guilty Pleasure’s bonus series! A series we begun as part of our friends Bloodhound Pix #HorrorNotFear campaign and was supposed to end last summer. But the show rolls on now that we have become a firm fixture at the Morbidly Beautiful network and we just have so much damn fun doing it. So, it will now roll on forever! (or however long people allow us to keep doing this!).

We ran a poll on social media platforms to see which film we would look at in our “More Ropey Remakes” edition. Would it be 2005’s House of Wax or 2009’s Sorority Row. Well by an absolute landslide (88% of the vote!) you went with the notoriously Paris Hilton starring House of Wax remake.

Alongside NHE host Scott Murphy to dive into this one we have regular guests author Robert Ottone and Mychoverse creator MJ Dixon.

Over the course of the episode the trio talk about if this movie is overhated, how much the Paris factor lead to people hating on it and how the cast could not be anymore mid-00’s if it tried. Plus we get into the logic of having an entire building made of wax and the ability to climb up an entire staircase of melting wax.

Oh yeah, also for reasons unknown we start talking about the Children of the Corn franchise again, just like last month!
