-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 »
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.
