I don’t know what to think of this “House at the End of the Street” film. I know it has Jennifer Lawrence cast in the film and that it’s like a horror/thriller type film but that’s about it. I’m sure people will die and heads will roll but I still don’t get what the big deal is with this movie. Maybe these new images will change my mind?
Seeking a fresh start, newly divorced Sarah (Oscar®-nominee Elisabeth Shue; Leaving Las Vegas, Piranha 3D) and her daughter Elissa (Oscar®-nominee Jennifer Lawrence; The Hunger Games, X-Men: First Class) 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.
Still don’t get it. And I’m having a hard time referring to this film as H.A.T.E.S. as been used in all the promotional material I’ve seen. It’s a neat idea but it needs to earn some meaning or reverence. Still not convinced but we’ll see…
