Plot Summary

Having survived the events of Waxwork (1988), Mark and Sarah find themselves on trial for the murder of Sarah’s father, a crime actually committed by a disembodied hand. Looking for the hand, the couple end up at the home of Sir Wilfred where a device he’s built allows them to leap through time and space to a parallel dimension where fictional characters from books and films are all too real.
