In this very loose remake of the classic thriller/slasher movie, Carly (Elisha Cuthbert) and her brother Nick (Chad Michael Murray) head out on a road trip to see an LSU Football game. As night sets in and it starts to get dark, the group decides to pull over in a wooded area, set up camp for the night and get back on the road in the morning. True to horror movie form, after a somewhat sleepless night of strange sounds in the night, the group awakes the next morning and discovers that they are having car trouble. Naturally, a creepy looking hillbilly shows up to offer assistance. He gives two of them a ride into town to get the car serviced, and there they begin to discover that everything is exactly what it seems. The town is seemingly deserted, the garage is ominous and scary looking, and there is something that just isn’t right with the two brothers that own the garage. Soon enough the gang, one by one, discover that they have indeed walked straight into a pit of horror. The town isn’t deserted; its residents are all there, but they are wax figures so real that you’d think they were actual people. And they are. As the group is waxed off one by one, the terror sets in for the few that remain, as they wonder if they will ever escape the demented brothers and their museum of death. Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra and starring the camera-friendly Paris Hilton alongside Elisha Cuthbert, Chad Michael Murray, Jared Padalecki and Brian Van Holt (as the evil twins Bo and Vincent), the film is a journey into the weird, scary and bloody realm that lies in the small town of Ambrose.
