House at the end of the street -- Film Review

House at the end of the Street
Release Date: December 5,2012
Starrring: Jennifer Lawrence, Max Thieriot, Elisabeth Shue, Gill Bellows, Eva Link
Directed by: Mark Tonderai

House at the End of the Street was a pointless generic horror movie that I've ever seen, I really thought it had a potential to be a great horror movie which failes with so many cliches and pointless story, Jennifer Lawrence performance was utterly wasted but doesn't take my respect of her, The movie may be unforgivable but Lawrence is forgivable this is just a misfortune on her acting streak.

Seeking a fresh start, newly divorced Sarah (Elisabeth Shue) and her daughter Elissa (Jennifer Lawrence) 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), 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.

House at the end of the at street was really an interesting movie, though not entirely original, the film had a relatively clever twist sadly this doesn't help to mask the fact that this is just another run of the mill thriller, the big mistake of the movie is to categorize it under horror genre, It's just using the same old tired out horror formula that we've seen literally a billion times.

This is a bad movie with a good couple of charming actors, There is actually one twist, one scare and nothing more, the twist isnt interesting and the scares are stupid, the build to the climax was sloppy, It didnt develop the characters in an interesting way and I could have cared less about them when the end came, But then this is another movie that you ever heard it's likely another misleading title, really disappointed to Jennifer Lawrence for signing up with this.

The characters in this film lacked so much depth that by the time the film ended, I was just confused by their emotions, or lack there of there seemed to be so much of the story missing, It just jumped all over the place, There was a couple of good scares but not enough of a story to built up for the first to be as dramatic as it should be as dramatic as it should and the finally doesn't come until the end, There was no horror to this film at all, not at all was depecting and expected.

Verdict: 1.5/5
