Jennifer Lawrence and Elisabeth Shue star in this psychological horror. When divorced mother Sarah (Shue) and her teenage daughter Elissa (Lawrence) move to a new town, they soon learn that their new home is located next door to a house in which a crazed girl bludgeoned her parents to death a few years previously. When Elissa befriends the surviving son of the family, Ryan (Max Thieriot), she discovers that there is more to the story than first meets the eye...

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.

When i first watched this film i thought it was about a ghost. i was totally wrong but i loved it. the ending is great and recommend it to anybody who loves a good thriller. its not scary though just the odd jump so if you dont like really jumpy things, still give this a watch. you might be suprised and really like it.

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.

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!

I found this quite formulaic and predictable but worth watching for Jennifer Lawrence's performance (which is never less than good in anything I've seen her in). There are only paranormal overtones to the film, it's not a ghost story/creepy old house film as such - think "serial killer" and Anthony Perkin's "Norman Bates" in "Psycho" and you're getting warm!

It seems like only yesterday that Jennifer Lawrence made her big screen debut in Winter's Bone [DVD] [2010], a small scale but critically acclaimed movie which gained her an Oscar nomination.

Since then she has gone from strength to strength starring in two of the biggest box office successes we have seen in the last two years X Men First Class and Hunger Games. I think it's fair to say that her rise has been meteoric.

As I watched the movie and the camera's love affair with her, the thought went through my mind several times of what an exquisite looking creature she truly is, still young enough to play a teenager.

A grisly murder of two parents takes place in a remote house in a leafy suburb of an upscale neighborhood of a typical rural town. The daughter who killed them was never found thus stoking local legend that she is still running around loose.

Years later a mother played by Elisabeth Shue and her daughter Elissa (Jennifer) move to said town they end up in a house nearby from which the slightly rundown, seemingly abandoned and spooky murder house is visible. Cue the scary music when Jennifer looks through the trees and sees the house light unexpectedly come on. Wooh.

As Elissa adjusts to school life her curiosity ensures familiarity with the story, and then one night walking in the rain a car stops to offer her a ride home, and the driver is the current occupant of the scary house the only surviving member of the family. Does she get in the car or keep walking?
