Trivia / House of Wax (2005)

  • Actor Allusion:
  • California Doubling: The movie is set in the American south, but was filmed entirely in Australia.
  • Enforced Method Acting: Elisha Cuthbert had her lips actually glued together when Bo does the same to Carly.
  • I Am Not Leonard Nimoy: Even the soundtrack gets in on this. There's a track titled 'Paris Gets It', even though the character she plays is called Paige.
  • Playing Against Type:
    • Chad Michael Murray had initially only really played teen heartthrobs in movies and of course his One Tree Hill role so it was quite difficult for him to play bad boy Nick.
    • Paris Hilton had pretty much just played herself before this film.
    • Elisha Cuthbert's most well known role was as a Ms. Fanservice, almost the complete opposite of a Final Girl.
  • Playing Their Own Twin: Brian Van Holt plays both Bo and Vincent.
  • Scully Box: As Jared Padalecki is a whole foot taller than her, Elisha Cuthbert taped two-inch blocks of wood to her boots whenever they were filmed from the knee up.
  • What Could Have Been: An alternate opening featured a girl called Jennifer stranded on the highway, who gets killed by either Bo or Vincent. It was filmed and included as an extra on the DVD. It is her statue that Vincent is working on at the start of the movie - and the statue of the Miss Ambrose winner is of her.
  • Wolverine Publicity: Paige is probably the fourth most important character, but Paris Hilton got the most press about starring in the film.
