Netflix Instant Watch: "Waxwork" (1988)
If you are looking for a cheesy and campy horror movie to check out on Netflix Instant Watch this weekend, look no further than the 1988 movie "Waxwork," starring Zach Galligan ("Gremlins") and Deborah Foreman ("April Fools Day"). When an evil wax museum owner invites a group of college kids to view his collection of famous monster and murderers, they find themselves becoming trapped in the exhibits themselves in order to become the finishing pieces to the displays. The movie does a good job of blending horror and gore with comedic scenes, all while paying a nice homage to horror movies. Horror fans will see wax displays involving werewolves, the mummy, jack the ripper and more. Fun fact? There were also four wax displays that were supposed to appear in the Waxwork, but were left out due to legal reasons: Jason from "Friday the 13th", some of the children from "Village of the Damned", the Golem and the Thing. When watching the movie you'll be able to catch a glimpse of the Golem as well as the arctic tundra that displayed the Thing.
