Waxwork II: Lost in Time
A killer is waiting... in the past, present and future.
The survivors of the first Waxwork must use a portal through time to defeat the evil that has followed them and turned their lives upside down.
I'm BORED! So bloody bored...
Anthony Hickox returns as the writer/director for the sequel to his original Waxwork. Like Tobe Hooper and Sam Raimi before him, he seems to have decided to make a full fledged comedy out of his horror sequel. The problem is that Hickox is not in the same league as Hooper or Raimi and seems to be handicapped by having no actual sense of humor.
The film's premise is just an excuse to have the main characters jump in time which are mostly just poorly executed ripoffs of better movies. Seriously, if you're Anthony Hickox the last thing you should be doing is reminding me of movies such as Alien and…
Drags a bit in the medieval section but redeems itself in a quite insane and rather brilliant final 20 mins. Couldn't have hoped for a better sequel. Oh, and more films should end with a rap music video ,featuring the cast, over the credits.
I had low hopes for this 15 minutes in I found those expectations met. The direction seemed a little flat and the film is a little dull. Then the two main characters start travelling in time and it really picks up. The Frankenstein part is decent, though it’s weird to see Martin Kemp in a film like this. The next scenes are all in the world of The Haunting. Bruce Campbell has a role in this and does a great job. There is a scene where he is tied up with his chest cut open and ribs exposed. He has a sack of salt thrown at his exposed innards then a load of vinegar that’s mistaken for water thrown over…
For the most part a pretty respectable sequel - the first half and maybe ten minutes near the end make for a worthy followup as our two surviving heroes from the first movie jump from one horror-movie adventure to another looking for evidence of the feasibility of reanimating dead flesh, so as to present it at court where the girl is on trial for the murder of her dad and thus prove that her alibi - that it was really a severed hand that did it, Evil Dead 2-style - is plausible enough for reasonable doubt. Read that again if you have to - yes, that's really the plot. Lots of great cameos too - David Carradine, Bruce Campbell, Marina…
Unfunny horror comedy. Bruce Campbell was terribly underused.
Kellemes kis folytatás, rengeteg megmosolyogtató utalással. :)
Loads of horror comedy fun. Great follow-up, non-stop entertainment.
I watched this because I liked the first one.
This one is a continuation of the first Waxwork film, but there are no waxworks. But its still a fun film.
Its like a horror Quantum leap. this time, they travel in time to horror situations. The plot is nothing to talk about, its again just a fun watch.
Also it ends with a very random rap song. How is it connected, I have no idea, its beautifully random.
Its a shame they dont make films like this anymore. Its just fun!
Also its got that guy from Die Hard, always worth watching him in a film!
This is a Waxwork sequel, right? Instead of building on the premise of the original, this is just a derivative rip-off or spoof of whatever comes to Anthony Hickox's mind. He's trying to appease genre fans with references to Nosferatu, Dawn of the Dead and Aliens, among others, with little success. The Quantum Leap-esque time travel device barely works in the first place. The final film is a disorienting, generally unenjoyable jumble.
References a bunch of movies and does a pretty good job of having a lot of fun with a pretty stupid story concept.
Tydelig et større budsjett, men like dårlig skuespill og manus. Fremdeles ikke morsomt eller skummelt. Men her er det nok tiden som har tæret, 1990 hadde nok et mer lettpåvirkelig publikum.
80's cheesy horror fun.
