Trama e commenti: - - - - - - - Dopo essersi salvati dall'avventura al museo delle cere i due protagonisti devono combattere ancora contro i mostri: per dimostrare la propria innocenza in tribunale infatti necessario portare una prova della loro esistenza. Il film nettamente al di sotto delle aspettative: non solo non ha nulla a che vedere con il primo, che era quantomeno interessante per gli amanti del genere, ma decisamente un film scadente sotto tutti i punti di vista. La trama poco pi che un pretesto e le sottostorie di cui composta sono veramente ridicole. Come pure i dialoghi e la recitazione degli attori. Le musiche sono scelte abbastanza bene, ma sono del tutto sprecate visto che tutto il resto del film realmente diretto malissimo. Insomma, un film deludente che non vale nemmeno la pena di vedere.

Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb - - - - - - - - - The film opens with the final scenes of Waxwork. Then a reenactment of Mark and Sarah leaving the burning waxwork (the part of Sarah had been recast from the first film). They then part ways. Unbeknownst to them, they have been pursued by a disembodied zombie hand, which follows Sarah to her run-down flat, where she is berated by her stepfather, who had warned her about going out with her friends and scolds her for ruining her dress. Shortly after that, the hand scuttles into the room, kills the stepfather with a hammer, and tries to kill Sarah too. She shoves the hand down a waste disposal, covering the room in blood. The next day, Sarah is blamed for the murder of her father, and brought to court where the destruction of the waxwork is brought up. No one believes her story and Mark disrupts her trial. The two are temporary dismissed and, in the hope of gathering evidence, the two visit Sir Wilfred's home, where they find a filmreel of Sir Wilfred speaking of his and Mark's grandfather's adventures and of the artifacts they collected together. After finding a secret switch in Sir Wilfred's chessboard a door opens in the wall to a room full of objects. Mark and Sarah finally come across a small compass-like device, and upon reading the directions in a piece of parchment contained with the device they read that it was used in history by light and dark angels to travel through to another dimension consisting of stories that have become realities (including homages to Frankenstein, The Haunting, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Dr. Jekyll, Alien, Godzilla, Jack the Ripper, Nosferatu, and Dawn of the Dead). When Mark or Sarah appear in each reality they take on the persona of characters in those stories, sometimes having their personalities and memories taken over by those character until they regain their senses. Mark plans to gather evidence of the reanimated dead to bring back to the real world as proof of Sarah's story in court. According to exposition given by Sir Wilfred in the form of a raven these worlds are where God and the devil battle over the fate of the world, with each victory for good or evil being reflected to good or evil occurring in the real world. After several failed attempts and being lost in one world after the next they battle it out with an evil sorcerer and Mark is able to send Sarah home with an animated zombie hand as proof of her story. Unable to return with her, Mark instead arranges to have another compass delivered to Sarah after her trial ends so she can rejoin him.
