I enjoyed this film. It's by no means brilliant or incredibly original but still 90 minutes of solid entertainment. At times I did feel I'd seen it all before and certain elements did seem lifted directly from a hundred other films, but there was enough tension and threat to keep me watching and plenty of movies I have fail that criteria! As other reviewers have said however, don't be misled by the blurb on the front of the case implying this is deeply scary and therefore a horror film....it isn't, but if you're in the market for a thriller and won't be disappointed by a lack of gore and mayhem, then you could do much much worse than to rent this.

In case you close your eyes every time Hollywood is mentioned, you might not know that Jennifer Lawrence was in The (hugely profitable) Hunger Games. She's currently Tinseltown's darling and, judging by this film, can sell anything.

The House at the End of the Street is about a teenage girl and her mother, who move into a house next to one where some murders were committed a while back. The teenage boy who witnessed said killings still lives there. Let the creepiness commence.

There is nothing `supernatural' about this film, it's a sort of horror/thriller with teenage leads. And that's the most important part. Whereas Twilight was a vampire story for teens and The Hunger Games was a Battle Royale/Running Man for teens. The House at the End of the Street is a horror/thriller for teens. I'm sure plenty of 15+ people will enjoy it too, but I'm going to stick my neck out and guess that its primary fanbase will be around the 15 years of age mark.

I've seen a lot of these times of horror/thrillers. Perhaps that's my problem. I know every scare and twist going (and can therefore predict them a mile off). However, if I hadn't watched many of these sorts of films, I'm sure I would enjoy it much, much more. Basically, to seasoned and cynical cinema-goers such as myself, this film offers nothing new. It conforms to every cliché going, yet it was pretty damn successful, proving that Jennifer Lawrence is one hell of a box office draw. Fair play to it for finding an audience - I just don't think many people will get much out of this is (a) they have seen plenty of these type of films before and (b) if they're not in the `Twilight generation.'

Oh, and don't get me started on the actual NAME of the film. Even fans of the film must admit that whatever Hollywood writer picked it was having a really slack and lazy day. Seriously...

I had high expectations for this film but they quickly went away as I began to watch the film. The whole film is just ridiculous, not any scary bits to it- just your average predictable horror film. There was no 'big twist' as promised, it was as I said before- predictable.

And the part with the girls brother having the baby monitors the other way round was just a huge mistake on the directors part.

All in all- bad film. Wouldn't watch it again.

I purchased this dvd thinking it was a ghost story, I don't know where I got the idea from, I suppose it was the way it was described, it also recommended excellent performances etc. etc. Well it wasn't a ghost story so that put us off from the start. We both found the story boring and predictable and watched it only once (barely). I would not recommend it - at best it's the run of the mill, selling only because there are some well-known names. Just like Dream House.
