From Amazon.co.uk

Boasting yet another terrific leading performance from Jennifer Lawrence, The House At The End Of The Street is a psychological thriller that wears its stripes by having a genre cliché present and correct in its title. It’s content to play with it though, and it sets its scene as Elisabeth Shue’s Sarah, the mother of Lawrence’s character, moves them into a new property that would ordinarily be well out of their price range. The reason it isn’t? That’d be the murder that took place next door. Enter, then, Max Thieriot’s Ryan as the survivor of said incident, and the mystery of what exactly took place deepens.

It’s all a bit by the numbers in truth, but what lifts The House At The End Of The Street are two excellent acting performances. Both Shue and Lawrence give it their all here, and the film benefits enormously. Credit too should go to director Mark Tonderai, who follows up the quietly impressive Hush by injecting The House At The End Of The Street with a smattering of very, very impressive moments. The end result is a film that’s notably better than the story itself would suggest. The release isn’t beefed up a great deal by much in the extras department, incidentally, but the presentation of the film is suitably solid. --Jon Foster

4.0 out of 5 stars Not what I was expecting 23 Sep 2012
Format:DVD
The film begins by giving the back story of the house which will feature later on. In bed is a girl who wakes up in the middle of the night. She walks down the hallway, not looking quite right and making some very strange noises. The girl then proceeds to stab both her mother and father before running away in the woods near her house. From here, I knew that this film wasn't going to be what I expected. Yes, there were a few jumpy bits but I knew that there was going to be a really good story to it as well.

After a creepy and strange beginning, we are taken to the normal lives of Sarah and Elissa who are just moving into their new home, which is massive and stunning. Sarah explains to Elissa early on that the only reason that they can afford it is because of the murder next door but both believe that no one lives there anymore. I really enjoyed getting to know both Sarah and Elissa during the beginning of the film as it showed how strained their relationship was and both of their personalities came through very clearly. I liked that the mother and daughter were so different as it created a nice contrast.

Jennifer Lawrence does well as Elissa, playing a likeable but slightly broken girl with family problems. The character is extremely different from either role that Lawrence plays in The Hunger Games or X: Men so don't be prepared to see anything expected from her. I loved how inquisitive Elissa was and that she wasn't someone who followed the crowd. As she starts a new school, Elissa realises that she doesn't want anything to do with the popular crowd and she eventually finds a friend in Ryan, the guy living next door. Lawrence's performance was really good and extremely believable. She comes across as likeable but with an added hint of mystery and excitement at the same time.

I watched this last night. It's not a horror but definitely edge-of-you-seat thriller. And the twist at the end is incredible, did not see that one coming. Certainly unoriginal but fun all the same. If you're looking for 90 minutes to waste, get this. You won't be disappointed.

By Mr Baz #1 REVIEWER #1 HALL OF FAME
Format:DVD
l watched this on Netflix a while back and honestly I had higher expectations of the film. When you see the main actress on the cover credited with a performance in another film, it also is a bit telling in some ways.

The story starts with a scene showing a young woman murder her mother. We then move forward to the present time with a Mother and Daughter moving to a new town, a Doctor called Sarah Cassidy (Elisabeth Shue) and Elissa her Daughter (Jennifer Lawrence). As bad luck would have it they've moved to the area where (cue the title) the House at the end of the street is the place where the murder took place (smile:-) you saw that one coming too)

Max Thieriot (Ryan Jacobson) is the young man who lives in the house being there alone since the murder took place. Max is a bit of a loner and people feel he is strange and avoid him. Elissa eventually ends up being involved with Max despite her mother's objections. What happens next isn't a surprise, I saw it a mile off and you probably worked out the ending too

The problem with the story is despite some decent actors here, it ends up becoming a fairly run of the mill production. It's worth a watch once that is, but I had no desire to see it again and felt the story could have been a lot more interesting and diverse overall. Jennifer Lawrence does her best (she is a good actress no question) but you can only go so far with the material you are given. Sometimes you have to take a risk with any production and possibly wander down a less well trodden path. House at the end of the street plays it very safe and suffers a distinct lack of originality.

It's not awful, it's not great just that uncomfortable place that's about average for a film.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lawrence of Suburbia. 29 Jun 2014
By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
A little better than its garbage reputation, as evidence by the support it got at the box office from its target audience, Mark Tonderai’s horror/thriller is safe genre film making. There’s no intelligence in the screenplay, no copious amounts of blood letting, the characters do dumb things and in truth it unfolds as a standard girl in peril movie. These things are what have led to it being savaged by critics, but backed by a trio of strong performance from Jennifer Lawrence, Elisabeth Shue and Max Thieriot, boosted by a genuine narrative surprise and the fact that Tonderai is able to do the peril motifs with suspenseful impact, ensures House at the End of the Street is at least a decent enough time waster. 5/10

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good story! 26 Mar 2014
By ReviewBlog51 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I was quite surprised whilst watching 'House at the End of the Street'. Originally expecting it to be a rather jumpy, but ultimately forgettable horror film. Instead, I found it to be more than decent thriller with a very good story, which could be described as a 'Psycho for the younger audience'.

Jennifer Lawrence stars as Elissa, a young girl who moves to a new area with her recently divorced mother Sarah (Elisabeth Shue). Their new home is located next to a house where a girl murdered her parents and was never seen again. The house is a talking point for the other residents, as indeed is Ryan (brilliantly played by Max Thieriot), the brother of the murderous girl who rarely lives the house his parents were slain in. The locals all regard Ryan was an odd ball, some taunt him, whilst others go out of their way to avoid him. The only friend he has is police officer Bill Weaver (Gil Bellows) who protects him from vicious tongues. However, sweet natured Elissa quickly befriends Ryan, much to the horror of her mother. The friendship between the two blossoms, until Elissa begins to worry about what her new friend might be hiding in his basement.

I've picked up many a so-called 'good' thriller for cheap in the DVD section of supermarkets, but 'House at the End of the Street' really is one of them. I actually quickly began to care for the characters, which says a lot for the quality of a film. Whilst it isn't a masterpiece by anyone's standards, nor is it particularly original (as I've said, I was reminded of a modern day 'Psycho' throughout), it does engross you, the performances are excellent, and as for the twist at the end - well, I for one never saw it coming.

Check it out!
