House at the End of the Street Reviews

A routine 'Don't go down to the basement' thriller, but watching Jennifer Lawrence go through her paces makes it enjoyable.

Tonderai steers the story cleanly around its queasy hairpin turns, perversely toying with one of pop cinema's most cherished clichés: the audience's inculcated desire to side with the underdog.

House at the End of the Street is what it is: a teenage version of Fatal Attraction (1987) with a dash of The Collector (1965).

By the third act, you or someone sitting near you will be whispering, muttering or just plain shouting at the screen.

This PG-13 scare-fest is more psychological terror than blood and guts, and should satisfy-not repulse-young genre fans.

Though The House at the End of the Street is smarter than most films of the genre, it still has some fairly predictable plot turns.

An uncommonly tedious effort...

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.

Ninety minutes of melodrama for ten minutes of a very derivative surprise ending.

A clunky, run-of-the-mill horror flick written by the same guy who penned last year's similarly themed disappointment, Dream House.

Scene-Stealers.com

It isn't very scary, but it does pile a bunch of really tasteless twists on towards the end that make no sense and it almost becomes a comedy. On one hand, is a failure as a horror film, but as an exercise in desperation, it's kind of a hoot

exactly what you'd expect from a PG-13 horror movie dropped in September. There's really nothing particularly scary about it, and the story ranges from shaky to thin

House at the End of the Street reveals itself to be merely another forgettable PG-13 thriller banking on the brain-dead mall crowd to tweet their unending love for a crummy feast such as this.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

The screenplay has a nice twist that could have supported a stylish giallo-style thriller; unfortunately, director Mark Tonderai delivers a mess -- an almost random tangle of choppy edits, handheld camera, 'shock' sound effects and other horror cliches.

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

Formulaic, unoriginal suspense thriller aided by a plot twist and good leads, that might delight the less-gore-is-more teenage audience.

Creative Loafing

The filmmakers elect to emphasize every plot point and telegraph every plot twist with the delicacy of a train blaring its horn as it approaches a crossing -- and yet that isn't even their greatest sin.

ScreenRant

Borrows so liberally from other movies that it could have been fascinating, but due to confused direction and a mishmash of acting, it's ultimately bland and forgettable.

Austin Chronicle

Lawrence is fine as the solo-parented teen and Thieriot does a mean Tony Perkins (circa Pretty Poison, but on downers), but the sheer tedium of the storyline means you never really care about any of them.

[T]he scariest thing about [this] is that this sort of junk is considered a good career move for a young actress who's just come off a small film from a respected indie director...

Saying that House at the End of the Street is contrived is an insult to contrivances.
