BIQ Guide To Remakes: House Of Wax

Original: 1953
Remake: 2005
Best Version: Original

The original House of Wax was made before I was even born, but during the minor 3D resurgence of the 1980’s it was re-released in cinemas in a nice new polarised 3D version. I remember other people in the cinema scoffing and laughing at it, but I have to admit it creeped me out. What can I say, I was only young and Vincent Price is a scary dude. The only real redeeming features of the preposterous remake were Paris Hilton’s death scene and the delicious Elisha Cuthbert.
