Journalist-turned-screenwriter Peter Landesman, the writer and director of Parkland has been blessed with a marvelous cast including Paul Giamatti, Billy Bob Thorton, Zac Efron and Marcia Gay Harden, as well as an indie darling Mark Duplass who has recently booked a role of campaign advisor and friend to John F. Kennedy, Kenny O’Donnell.
Parkland will ‘look inside the Parkland hospital — which housed John F. Kennedy, Lee Harvey Oswald, and, years later, Jack Ruby as they all perished — on November 22nd, 1963 as their workers and members of the President’s staff dealt with the chaos of that day.’
In order to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the 35th president’s death, producers are eyeing the U.S. theatrical release later this year.

House at the End of the Street has arrived on Blu-ray and DVD Combo pack from 20th Century Fox. I missed the film in theaters, so this was my first viewing. I must say that I am truly glad I saw this film at home. This is one of the most generic horror movies I have seen as of late, and that is saying something. I feel as though I had seen this story before, oh wait I have seen something called The Last House on the Left. I had hoped that the fact that I am a fan of Jennifer Lawrence, that I would somewhat enjoy House at the End of the Street, but I was wrong.
Directed by Mark Tonderai, the film stars Lawrence, Elisabeth Shue, Max Thieriot, Gil Bellows, Will Bowes, and Jonathan Higgins. The story follows Sarah (Shue) and her daughter Elissa (Lawrence) who are trying »

Chicago – Mark Tonderai’s “House at the End of the Street” is not to be confused with this year’s “The House Across the Street” or either version of “Last House on the Left.” What Tonderai hopes you mistake it for is a classy Hitchcockian homage evocative of the Master’s most shocking and immortal picture, 1960’s “Psycho.”
That’s exactly what the creatively starved mainstream multiplexes need: another uninspired rehash of “Psycho.” Imagine if Marion Crane grew bored with her horndog beau Sam and became attracted to sensitive, soft-spoken Norman Bates. Imagine if Norman spent time finding faces in the bark of trees with the same odd mixture of thoughtfulness and whimsy that Ricky Fitts exuded while watching footage of a floating bag in “American Beauty.”
Blu-ray Rating: 0.5/5.0
Yes, dear readers, this is a touchy-feely variation on “Psycho,” with blonde soon-to-be-victimized Elissa falling for the blatantly unhinged nutcase next door. »

Director Mark Tonderai made his feature directorial debut in 2008 with the thriller Hush, after working as an actor, writer, and producer for various films and TV shows. The filmmaker returned to the silver screen last year with House at the End of the Street, starring Jennifer Lawrence, Elisabeth Shue, and Max Thieriot. The story follows Sarah and Elissa (Elisabeth Shue and Jennifer Lawrence), a mother and daughter who move into a dream house they shouldn't be able to afford. As it turns out, just at the end of the street, a young girl killed both her parents, with the lone survivor Ryan (Max Thieriot) living all alone in that big house. When Elissa starts to get close to Ryan, she learns the untold truth about what really happened. I recently had »
