House of Wax Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Warner Brothers 1.85:1, 1080p presentation of House of Wax looks fine for the most part. There is a pretty high level of detail throughout. However, this is a very dark picture. The film is grainy at times, especially in some of the very dark scenes. Colors are a tad muted. We rarely see any bright, vibrant colors. The wax museum, as one might expect, has a dull, colorless look about it. Some of the very dark scenes suffered from black crush. The print is in pretty darn good shape with no discernible defects or blemishes. The image never appears three-dimensional. It looks rather flat and lifeless on screen. Still, there are no major problems here. It's just not meant to be a pretty, colorful film, and what we get with this Blu-ray release is likely a pretty close approximation of what director Jaume Collet-Serra meant for us to see.


House of Wax Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

The Dolby Digital 5.1 track employed by Warner Brothers on this release is adequate yet a little underwhelming. The track does feature good, tight bass throughout. The track really picks up when the action does. Once the first character is killed, the music gets loud, the volume cranks up, and the soundstage is filled with notes of dread and doom. It's a pretty good score and is one of the better things about the movie. The majority of the action takes place across the front soundstage. I didn't notice anything too special. Separation is OK, but not phenomenal. Dialogue sometimes sounded a bit harsh, but was clear and discernible more often than not. Surrounds are used sparingly, even in the action-packed final moments of the film. I was not overly impressed with this soundtrack, but it suffices.
