Trivia

The ending of this film was how Waxwork (1988) was scripted to end, but they were over budget, and had run out of time, which is why it was hastily replaced with a massive battle sequence. Anthony Hickox always liked the idea of the sequence, and used it as the climax of this film. See more »

Goofs

At the end of the original Waxwork, which is supposed to be the same night as the opening sequence of the sequel, Sarah has short hair. In the sequel she has long flowing hair. See more »

Crazy Credits

During the end credits, a funny rap music video is playing. It shows scenes from the movie and some behind the scenes footage, but has rappers singing the title song "Lost In Time" while the cast dances to the music in the background. See more »

SERIOUS FUN
27 June 2004 | by tomaxxamotSee all my reviews

If you don't have a sense of humor or an appreciation for classic horror you won't like this film. It's a montage of homage that is devoted to capturing the pace, direction style, acting style, dialogue etc. of such films as Alien, The Haunting, Dawn of The Dead, Nosferatu on a relatively low budget. The pared down scenes accentuate the spoof sentiment and remind us why horror is fun. Take the Alien scene, hard talking', pulse rifle carrying space marines complete with transmission samples as background juxtaposed to the reefer madness-esque black and white, highly stylized scene of The Haunting. Battling evil can be funny and Bruce Campbell's cameo, as well as others, lends support. If nothing else, it's a treasure hunt for horror genre fans.
