After moving with her mother to a small town, a teenager finds that an accident happened in the house at the end of the street. Things get more complicated when she befriends a boy. A double murder is not an accident.
Newly divorced Sarah and her daughter Elissa 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.Written by
Jordan Hayes (who plays the waitress Ryan kidnaps) is credited as "Penn State Carrie Anne", even though the college ID that Elissa finds in the trash reveals her name is actually Peggy Johns. See more »
-SPOILER- The most significant addition is a 30-second scene where it's revealed that Officer Weaver was deeply involved in the events that transpired before the movie, basically implicating him for much of what happened. The PG-13 omits this twist entirely.
When Ryan stabs Officer Weaver toward the end of the movie, Weaver says, "I protected you all these years", clearly implying that he was involved in the events that transpired before the movie. That statement by Officer Weaver is in the PG-13 version of the movie, so while it may not be complete, it is not omitted entirely. See more »
I went to see HOUSE AT THE END OF THE STREET last night and didn't enjoy it as much as I hoped I would. The story is dull and predictable and the acting isn't rocksolid!Jennifer Lawrence played her role well though, she "blows" everyone away in this movie BUT, on the other hand, and I don't want to sound too negative, this flick wasn't a very hard nut for her to crack!
The story ;
Elissa (Lawrence) moves into a new home together with her mom Sarah(Elisabeth Shue) and finds out that the son of a murdered couple, who lived next door, still lives in the house where his parents were killed. The surrounding neigbours complain about him and tell Elissa that the boy is bad news! She wants to find out herself though and steps into his life...
It's a not a very bad movie but skip the theatre and wait for it on bluray/DVD.
