Simon Pegg’s debut to American audiences fires on all cylinders as a rollicking comedy. Yet it’s the strong characters and heart that elevates this far above most of the other horror comedies we’ve reviewed thus far.
We both found plenty to laugh at in this Naked Gun-style send-up of pre-1982 horror films.
The three of us enjoyed chatting about this “Goonies for horror fans,” delivered like a time capsule from the 1980’s. We kinda wonder why it isn’t more popular today.
As an artifact of 80’s filmmaking and the lost art of practical monster effects, Waxwork survives to deliver to today’s audience a bit of fun and a lot of truly terrible dialogue. The original premise is solid too, if a little uneven.
They just don’t make ’em like this anymore. We thought Tales of Halloween was a solid horror anthology that was perfect for the season.
