Even with It actress Jennifer Lawrence, I couldn't get into this by-the-books thriller. It seems to try too hard for what turns out to be a completely average result. Bah - after seeing her as Katniss and in Silver Linings, this seems just so... below her - even if she still looks great.

Not a great movie but still good to the end! I figured this would be a typical creepy neighbor type horror flick and in a way it was exactly that but with an interesting little twist. I found the dynamics of the mother-daughter relationship to be quite believable. I found it a little difficult to sympathize with the character Ryan until the very end when it was revealed what he had endured in his childhood. All in all a good jumpy horror movie that will leave you questions how on earth some people become parents. I liked this movie enough that I will be buying a copy soon.

With a movie that has such a generic title, you might think that it’s a red herring. The Cabin in the Woods was a similar situation, and it ended up being one of my favorite horror satires of all-time. House at the End of the Street is not horror satire; in fact, it is the exact kind of movie that horror satires make fun of. However, even though the script is spotty, it still contains some characters I found to be very likeable, and a story that was interesting even if it wasn’t executed as well as it could have been.
The movie is a about a teenage girl named Elissa (Jennifer Lawrence) that moves into a new neighborhood with her mom. They move right next to a house where a young girl murdered her parents four years ago. Her mother tells her that the drama surrounding that house …

After the recent divorce of her parents, Elissa (Jennifer Lawrence) and her mother Sarah (Elisabeth Shue) move to a small town where they house they bought turns out to be next to one where a thirteen-year-old girl brutally murdered her parents. Seventeen-year-old Elissa befriends the son, a well mannered but troubled and shy young man Ryan (Max Thieriot), who only survived the ordeal as he was away at boarding school during the time his parents were killed.
The sympathetic Elissa's fascination with Ryan grows especially when she discovers that the other kids in town harass and pick on Ryan much to the dismay of her mother who warns the two not to be together alone but you know this only alienates Elissa further from her mother and makes Ryan seem all the more irresistible. Little …

I liked the movie a lot actually. I am now convinced Jennifer Lawrence can play any role. She is very good in this movie. Also, the plot is good and the ending is completely unexpected. It's not a horror movie though. You completely suspect everything "scary" that is thrown at you. I would say it's more of a mystery-action adventure.&nbsp;
