I know what you're doing.
You're trying to save him.
I am not.
Yes, you are. That's what you do, you like to fix people.
Honey, sometimes people can't be fixed.

-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. See more »
I was a little bit skeptical about watching this movie and I came very close to not watching it. But, because I had a spare couple of hours with nothing better to do, I decided to give it a whirl.
A lot of modern-day horror movies are made on a budget. The typical tell-tale signs which give them away is the use of poorly lit sets, very few filming locations and a very small cast of young and unknown actors. They like to follow the path of "The Blair Witch Project" and rely on heavy breathing to create the suspense. A pretty young lady starts to breathe heavily in the dark, something jumps out and gets her, right? Nowadays, this has become the norm and this is what we come to expect.
Well, I'm pleased to say that "House at the End of the Street" is different and unique in its own right. Why? Because its actually got a storyline and it keeps you thinking! Just when you think you've figured it all out there's another clever twist that comes along and makes you think "Gee, why didn't I think of that". This is a movie which is always one step ahead of you! Also, the actors in this movie actually act. Don't get me wrong, it's not on the same page as an Alfred Hitchcock movie, but it is, nonetheless, very refreshing.
"House at the End of the Street" turned out to be a little gem. I'm glad that I rented it.
