Watch the original version of House of Wax
It all began as an innocent road trip. A group of college friends – Jake, Hannah, Beth, and Alex – had piled into Jake’s car, eager to escape their stressful college lives for a weekend getaway. But just a few miles down the highway, their plans were derailed when the car suddenly broke down.
Out of options, the four friends decided to go off the beaten path and explore the old, abandoned town they had stumbled upon. It seemed harmless enough, but as the group explored the eerie town, they began to notice unsettling similarities. There were no people anywhere, only the crumbling ruins of buildings and ancient-looking shops.
It wasn’t until the last building that the friends made a shocking discovery – a wax museum. The museum was filled with eerily lifelike wax sculptures of people, and it soon became clear that the sculptures were of actual people – people who dozens of years ago had gone missing.
Little did the group know that the museum was still running, and its proprietors were two demented twin brothers. The brothers enjoyed encasing their victims in hot wax and displaying them in the museum, their twisted form of art. The twins were always on the lookout for new victims, and the group of unsuspecting college friends had just stumbled right into their trap.
Frightened, the group backed away as the twins slowly advanced on them. But just when it seemed like all hope was lost, Jake had an idea. He took off his shoe and threw it at the nearest twin. The twin, temporarily distracted, tripped and fell, giving the group enough time to run out of the museum.
The group ran as fast as they could, their hearts pounding in their chests. As they reached the edge of the town, they heard a loud, eerie laugh coming from the museum. The twins had seen a way to add four new specimens to their collection, but their plans had been foiled.
The four friends made it back to the car, and it surprisingly started again on the first try. As they drove away, they looked back and saw a cloud of dust rising from the abandoned town. They had escaped the twin’s clutches and never looked back.
