News & Interviews for House at the End of the Street
Critic Reviews for House at the End of the Street
Shockingly uneventful, this horror film marks time until dropping its big, dumb reveal.
"House at the End of the Street" is so thoroughly unpredictable that it will even have you actively rooting for the villain and against the victims at one point.
A "sleepover night" horror movie made for young people who haven't seen many good horror movies.
It's made for - and presumably by - people who haven't ever seen a horror movie. What's even more frustrating is that its inherent ineptitude doesn't ever become entertaining in a "this is hilariously horrible" fashion.
Audience Reviews for House at the End of the Street
A generic, derivative and stupid Psycho rip-off that doesn't mind insulting the viewer's intelligence all the way through, and it throws in a ridiculous twist that makes no sense and makes it more than evident that no one involved gave a crap about it.
There is definitely a great psychological thriller buried in House at the End of the Street. Unfortunately, the version that is available completely lacks any kind of suspense. Some plot twists are kind of ingenious while others are way too predictable. Leaving nothing to the imagination and eager to tie things together in a nice crowd pleasing manner, the film is only slightly elevated by Jennifer Lawrence, who is way too good for this material.
While Lawrence does bring some depth to her character, you won't care for anything that happens, and the clumsily executed mystery will have a tendency to bore rather than unnerve. Hitchcock would not be proud.
3 3/4's--Really good actors, and an interesting and provocative thriller. Jennifer Lawrence is a strong lead who doesn't disappoint. I enjoyed the plot twist, and I have to admit that it had me fooled for quite awhile. Not sure why the critics hated it so much....
