The PG-13 and Unrated versions of the movie include several notable differences, including a plot twist in the finale as well as some additional violence and blood in the Unrated cut. The changes add only a minimal amount of additional runtime. See more »
Nothing Special About the House at the End of the Street.
This is a slow, classic story with nothing new to offer.
The story can only be describe as "bad". It is "Girl meet boy, in a horror movie". All the characters are completely flat, there is no deep in any of them. They are what you see, there is no even a change on them.
But the most incredible thing is that this is a horror movie without the horror factor. You can count with one hand the times you kind of jump. There is no mystery, no surprises, the audience know everything before it happens.
The last scene... completely stupid. It is there just to tell the audience something that is already obvious in the last 20 minutes of the movie. When a writer use that kind of tools is because they have fail in deliver the story the right way.
Even thou, it is not boring. The 100 minutes of run are not a nightmare like in other horror movies. Except for that, all the other things are failure, not even a good acting from the Academy Award nominee Jennifer Lawrence.
Go and catch another movie, because this is not worth the money.
