Overly Reductive Plot Summary
A group of university students are in for a ghoulish good time when they discover a waxwork museum with a dark secret - if you get too close to the exhibits, you'll be absorbed into the world of spine-tingling terror that is on display.
Not a damn thing.

Elements of the Film Ranked (On A blood-curtling scale of 1 to 5)
- A low-budget horror film that wastes the considerable talent of John Rhys-Davies? I never...
- Wonky editing and poor coverage create an unintentional dream-like state from start to finish. In a weird inversion of the norm, the extravagant fantasy scenarios inside the waxwork displays are more coherent than the simple dialog scenes, most of which feel like an afterthought.
- The film so nice, they tag-lined it twice! First, "Stop on by and give the afterlife a try". Second, "More fun than a barrel of mummies".
- The story is about a man who has chosen the 18 most evil beings in history. Why 18? Because 6+6+6, of course. Which 18? It's a who-gives-a-damn mix of historical figures like the Marquis de Sade and Jack the Ripper, fictional characters like Frankenstein's Monster and the mummy, and open-ended concepts like George Romero zombies and talking plants.
- The climax of the film (pictured above) features a wheelchair-bound adventurer who has retrofitted his mobility device to appear more tank-like as he continues his battle against evil. This pretty much sums up the timbre of the film.
Come on... Who doesn't have a couple bucks for all those shenanigans? Our Ice Block Pro Tip - watch it with friends. It's too nutty to be fully enjoyed alone.
