What Artists Appear on the 'House of Wax' Movie Soundtrack?

Marilyn Manson and My Chemical Romance Contribute to 'House of Wax' Soundtrack

House of Wax, the re-imagining of the 1953 Vincent Price 3D horror classic, was released to theaters nationwide on May 6, 2005. The soundtrack for House of Wax was released May 3, 2005 on Maverick Records and features tracks from bestselling artists The Prodigy, My Chemical Romance, Deftones, Disturbed, Marilyn Manson and others which heightened the horror of the edge-of-your-seat action thriller.

House of Wax stars Elisha Cuthbert, Chad Michael Murray, Brian Von Holt, Paris Hilton (during her brief attempt to start an acting career), Jared Padalecki, Jon Abrahams and Robert Ri'chard. While the movie was not well received by critics and was a disappointment at the box office, the soundtrack was recognized by many fans for being far superior than the actual movie.

The Plot:

A road trip to the biggest college football championship of the year takes a turn for the worse for Carly (Elisha Cuthbert), Paige (Paris Hilton) and their friends when they camp out for the night before heading to the game. A confrontation with a mysterious trucker at the camp site leaves everyone unsettled while Carly has her hands full keeping the peace between her boyfriend Wade (Jared Padalecki) and her hot-headed brother Nick (Chad Michael Murray).

They wake up the next morning to find that their car has been deliberately tampered with.

At the risk of being stranded, they accept a local's invitation for a ride into Ambrose, the only town for miles. Once there, they are drawn to Ambrose's main attraction -- Trudy's House of Wax, which is filled with remarkably life-like wax sculptures. But as they soon discover, there is a shocking reason the exhibits look so real.

As the friends uncover the town's dark secrets, they are stalked by a demented killer and find themselves in a bloody battle for survival. The group must find a way out of Ambrose -- or become permanent additions to the House of Wax.
