Films: House of Wax (2005)
Alias: Bo and Vincent Sinclair
Location: Haunted home
Height/Weight: That of average humans.
Summary: We once again visit the perpetually creepy world of wax figures. Yeah, we know, it's getting a little ridiculous, but don't lie, there's just something off about all of them. Especially if it took more than just wax. Always if it took more than just wax...
History: The town of Ambrose, Louisiana has been abandoned for years ever since the sugar mill stopped being useful. But at least two still remain in the dead place. A pair of once-conjoined twins named Bo and Vincent Sinclair. Bo is abusive and insane while Vincent is dull-witted and submissive. Together, they run both the entire town and Trudy's House of Wax. However, both the displays in the house and most of the civilians are just real people both injected and covered with wax to maintain realism, something that a gang of teens are about to find out the hard way...
Notable Kills: One guy gets the wax treatment, and is alive enough to get his skin accidentally pealed off. He expires shortly afterwards.
Final Fate: Eventually, Bo is beaten to paste by a baseball bat from one of the survivors. An enraged Vincent gets stabbed for his troubles, and is thrust upon his dead brother's corpse as their house burns around them and they sink into burning wax. However, a third sibling, implied to be the amicable Lester, is shown waving goodbye to the survivors...
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 4-Sure, the effects don't always work for them, especially where their admittingly nasty-looking disfigurements are concerned, but dear God, their methods are horrifying! Seeing just one person get subjected to their wax treatment and how much skin is removed if you chip away at a piece will make you never want to go near those figures ever again. Also, they like killing in other ways, so no pressure.
Trivia: -This film's entire legacy seems to hinge on how Paris Hilton's character dies. In fact, Hilton seemed in on that odd hype train as well, selling t-shirts and such all about it.
-A rather embarrassing lawsuit occurred when the effects expert and Wax productions got sued by the owners of Gold Coast, Australia's Warner Bros. Movie World due to an accidental fire that was in no way properly accounted for. Sheesh.
