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.

Don't be tempted to put in an offer; this house is built on flimsy foundations.

House at the End of the Street is a thoroughly awful and unpleasant horror film, one that attempts to affect its unlucky audience by trading in abuse, sadism, and general human misery. It is a dreadful experience.

All the condescension of a Lifetime Original Movie and only half the ironic entertainment value.

This is the type of run of the mill, cookie cutter, PG-13, piss poor excuse of a horror movie that horror fans always complain about over the internet.

You've seen every twist and turn before and it's all played completely straight. A Scream-esque knowing wink would make it all far more palatable.

Shockingly uneventful, this horror film marks time until dropping its big, dumb reveal.

There's nothing original at all about House at the End of the Street, yet another ineffective, training-wheels-attached, PG-13 horror movie.

There are one or two clever plot twists that are subsequently followed up by a cavalcade of ridiculous, credibility-stretching ones.

Bland, bloodless babysitter bait.

A "sleepover night" horror movie made for young people who haven't seen many good horror movies.

A soulless, uncreative, cliché-laden anger generator disguised as a horror thriller, Mark Tonderai's film undermines itself at every turn and infuriates its audience.

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.

It's too soapy and problematic to really work, but I guarantee you've seen worse this year.

You can tell Lawrence knows she's in a lost cause. Her performance is often rendered in one disinterested facial expression.

While its not bad-bad, it's just so poorly conceived that it should have premiered on Lifetime...It very well may be the most generic horror film ever made.

I hope Lawrence takes some time today to hug her Catching Fire producers for her good fortune.

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

A schlockly spin on the girl-in-jeopardy genre.
