Seeking a fresh start, newly divorced Sarah (Oscar(R)-nominee Elisabeth Shue; Leaving Las Vegas, Piranha 3D) and her daughter Elissa (Oscar(R)-nominee Jennifer Lawrence; X-Men: First Class, Winter’s Bone) find the house of their dreams in a small, upscale, rural town. But when startling and unexplainable events begin to happen, Sarah and Elissa learn the town is in the shadows of a chilling secret. Years earlier, in the house next door, a daughter killed her parents in their beds, and disappeared–leaving only a brother, Ryan (Max Thieriot, My Soul to Take), as the sole survivor. Against Sarah’s wishes, Elissa begins a relationship with the reclusive Ryan- and the closer they get, the deeper they’re all pulled into a mystery more dangerous than they ever imagined.
NOW…when HOUSE AT THE END OF STREET came out in theaters – quite a few people told me it was wack..but for ME…I liked it…even my wife liked it and that’s saying a lot since she’s not a ‘movie person’ like myself. (lol)
HOUSE AT THE END OF THE STREET stars two of my favorite gals – Elisabeth Shue and Jennifer Lawrence. They play mom and daughter and do it quite nicely. My eyes enjoyed watching BOTH of them on my TV. (lol) Don’t worry ladies – the movie has some eye candy for ya as well – they give you Max Thieriot, ya know – from MY SOUL TO TAKE and the A&E show BATE’S MOTEL. He plays the secret, damaged dude of the town. The boy has issues. (lol)
HOUSE AT THE END OF THE STREET definitely has action and thrills – - with some crazy twists. Even I didn’t catch it and I liked that. What you see in the trailer is not exactly how it seems. That’s why my wife liked this one – she thought it was actually believable – that this crazy stuff COULD happen. I think it’s worth the watch.
I give HOUSE AT THE END OF THE STREET… 3 1/2 out of 5 popcorns!
