So I just caught this movie September 30, 2012 and I really wanted to like it. But when I saw the decreasing rating from 6.4 to now 5.9, I was worried. I asked: what's wrong with this movie? and should I even go see it? I am so glad I ignored the bad rating. I normally don't care what other people about movies, but I was a little skeptical to see it after seeing so many bad reviews. House at the End of the Street is about Elissa and her mom Sarah moving to a new house that is very cheap because the house next door had a double-murder of the parents there by their "daughter <more>
Carrie-Ann". Elissa meets the surviving son Ryan and befriends him, unbeknownst to her that he is hiding "Carrie-Ann" in his basement and a dark secret. Jennifer Lawrence is probably one of my favorite actresses and the movies I've seen her in she is phenomenal. She proved herself once again that she is a worthy force in Hollywood. Max Thierot: I don't really know this actor, but he does a very nice job in the role of Ryan. Elizabeth Shue is also a very nice actress. This trio of actors did an exceptional job with the roles they were given. Lawrence does the snarky, rebellious teenage role very well, as well as the girl with a good heart and the will to help others. Thierot plays the quiet, repressed outcast with a dark secret very convincingly. He isn't creepy but he isn't dull and boring. Shue plays the cliché overprotective mother which may be my only issue with the movie who only wants what's best for her daughter and blah blah blah.Now, the twist. Most people called it ahead of time: Ryan is the killer. Now, I know that it was pretty obvious from the get-go that he was the killer, but that wasn't the twist. The twist was that Carrie-Ann died after falling on the swings, Ryan's parents made him "Carrie-Ann" to deal with their grief, Ryan killed his parents after their abuse had gone too far, blamed himself for his sister's death and then, when he got older, moved back to his house, kidnapped a girl and made her his "Carrie-Ann" because he needs her in his life. When "Carrie-Ann" escapes, she seeks help but Ryan stops her. On-screen, we are convinced Ryan is keeping his demented sister from killing anyone, but he just doesn't want people to know his secret. When she escapes again, he accidentally kills her. We now believe that Carrie-Ann is dead.While Ryan is keeping his secret, Elissa tries to get closer to him, much to her mother's dismay cliche again . She enters a Battle of the Bands competition and invites Ryan to come but his car gets trashed and then he gets beaten up until he retaliates and breaks a dudes leg he's not too important to the story and the rest of the bullies go to try and burn Ryan's house down but Elissa gets there in time to put out the fire. The last, I wanna say, 30 minutes of the film involve Elissa trying to get away from Ryan after discovering his secret and the truth about him. After defeating Ryan, Elissa and Sarah move from their new house while Ryan is in a mental institution, where he is haunted by his family's abuse towards him after Carrie-Ann died. EndThis movie, just like Cabin in the Woods, focuses on the clichés of horror movies, but doesn't necessarily attack them. Great acting and great story. People compare this to "Psycho" and "Sleepaway Camp" but I haven't seen those movies. I liked this movie and I really don't care what people have to negatively say about this movie. I recommend you go see it. It's not a waste of time or money. Don't listen to the dickholes!10/10
Me and my friend saw this yesterday morning for the cheap matinée price that our theater offers and I am going to tell you right now that I would go see it again full price and I probably will. Going into this film I expected bloody jumpy scary parts and was VERY pleasantly surprised to find that it is actually suspenseful instead. I had gone just to see Jennifer Lawrence, but she was not the one who made me want to stay and watch the show. Max Thieriot gave a terrific performance that even made me wonder what was going on.People have been saying that it was predictable, but I already knew <more>
who the bad guy was going in and was still shocked to learn their secret. I think that this movie deserves at least a six. It will be one of my favorites for a while and I will definitely be buying it when it comes out.
very suspenseful! Very scary! And you will never see the ending coming! Favorite movie of the year if your love suspense and a little scare. Not much gore just great and creepy on its own. Cant wait for it to come out on on demand so I can watch it with all my friends. My favorite movie of the year : Please watch it! I cant imagine anyone being unsatisfied! For days i replayed the ending in my head mulling it over and am still satisfied and intrigued by it. I watched it in theaters but it seems like a great rainy day movie too. Hope you watch it and enjoy! I took my friend to the theater and <more>
we were both curled in balls in out seats with pure fascination and fright.
A tense yet moving tale of extreme grief. (by lucyrichards27)
When I first saw the trailer for 'House at the end of the street' 2012 , I thought yay! another 'Silent house' type film. I loved 'Silent house' so I obviously wanted to see this. To be frank, it was much better. It's about a 17 year old girl who moves house with her mum. The house is right near some woodlands and right next to a house where a girl murdered her parents. Turns out, the brother still lives there as he has no-where else to go. He is constantly tormented by locals as they feel he's a psycho and they want him to sell the house. I as a viewer felt <more>
increasingly sympathetic towards him and desperately wanted him and Jennifer Lawrences' relationship to work, but it couldn't. They were so sweet together.Clearly, I can't say too much about it but the whole idea was really well crafted. The only reason why I'm not giving it a 10/10 is because there were a few moments that were a bit unrealistic. Overall though, it was a very tense and jumpy movie, Jennifer was great, and it had some really creepy imagery in it. I'd recommend it for lovers of 'Silent house'.
An excellent movie!!! For teens that is. (by LolaCrane)
If you were a 20-30-40 something year old expecting a For real horror film like Saw or the exorcist, then ya of course you'd be disappointed. This is a film for someone who doesn't want to be to scared. Honestly there was the occasional jump but this was the type of movie for a teenage girl who gets scared easily also known as me . In the end this was an excellent movie. A little but cheesy at time like the whole falling while your running, really J-law, I love her but honestly. but besides that I was very impressed. And Ryan wasn't to bad to look at ether. The acting was very <more>
impressive. I still prefer J-law in hunger games but she played the part very well. The mother was also a very good actress. She played the newly divorced, overprotective mother pretty well. As for Ryan he played his character as the quiet neighbor so well it was almost like a Norman bates type character. With his boyish charm and soft smile, yet there was something about him that made you not want to get to close to him, similar to Anthony Perkins character in the oh so famous psycho. Over all it was an excellent movie that I suggest you try, at least once.
House @ The End Of The Street Delivers. (by buckikris)
I rented this movie along with Sinister and I have to say this movie was 100 times better. I normally believe todays horror movies suck; every now and then a good one can sneak in there and surprise you. This movie had it all, humor, thrills, and twists. A mom Sarah and daughter Elissa new to the neighborhood. Jennifer Lawrence, Elissa, plays the perfect Miss innocent part. She meets a group of popular students and once invited to a party, is turned off by Tyler. She is so upset she starts to walk back home which is about 20 miles away. While walking on this deserted backwoods road she <more>
meets Ryan, the boy who still lives in the house by them. He asks her to get into the car so he can take her home; because it is getting ready to pour. At first she is like no I'll walk, but then the rain comes down and she gives in. All she knows about Ryan is that his sister killed his parents in that house.As the movie picks up you see Ryan going to the basement, unlocking the door and there in a room is a girl. I was like he is taking care of his messed up sister. I felt sorry for him at first because, I thought he was doing the best he could under the circumstances he was given. Little did I know he had a secret he was hiding. Ryan is not the person you think he is. At the end it explains everything, why he locked young women up in the basement, his behavior from the middle of the movie to the end. The movie is based on Ryan's young life and the event that happened when he was young. How his parents at the time brainwashed him to believe he was somebody else. I can see why he had problems in his young life; and because of his mother never got over them. I believe this is why he did the things he did. I don't what to give it all away, but this movie is one you will not be disappointed with. I even recommend it to all my classic horror fans, REDBOX it. That is what I did and I am glad I picked a winner. It doesn't have the blood and guts thing, but it does have the suspense and that's what counts.THX, Kris L. CocKayne
This movie was a pleasant surprise to me because I thought it was going to be more of a "horror" movie...I wouldn't call it that, I'd call it a terrific suspense thriller with good twists here and there. I liked the casting and the storyline. The actors did a good job, esp. the young college student male lead. This is a story that could have actually happened, imo. The music was a big part of the movie, too. Good soundtrack that, while I was aware of it, it did not take away from the scenes but built up my anxiety! It was like another character. Definitely worth seeing for <more>
all the right reasons. Very entertaining and kept my attention throughout. All this without "blood & guts" galore - made me think of the old Alfred Hitchcock-type thrillers that depended more on the viewer's anticipation and imagination. Lastly, I thought I had the plot figured out, but I was surprised at how wrong I was. Smiled on my way out of the theater.
I loved this movie, sure the acting wasn't always fantastic but while this movie had a slow start it had a great finish. I love movies like this. A good story with a twist and a lot of pop out make your heart stop moments.This was a very modern movie. I personally liked the plot and the whole movie was just the right length of time. Its rare to find a movie that doesn't need a lot of special effects to be terrifying. This one pulled it off, no supernatural or just far out there weird sci-fi stuff, just a genuinely very human scary movie. Well worth the cost to see on the big screen. <more>
P.S just so you know if you have the same movie taste here are some of my likes. Scream Halloween the original Disturbia The Grudge Insidious The Ring
Mystery, Suspense, and a Little Horror Await at the House at the End of the Street (by ksj870)
Young Elissa Jennifer Lawrence and her mother Sarah Elizabeth Shue think they are moving into a quiet, uneventful new home to reconnect and start over. The house next door is supposed to be empty, but late one night Sarah sees a light go on in the allegedly vacant edifice. Turns out a young man does live there, in the very house where his crazy sister murdered their parents years before. The townsfolk think young Ryan is crazy for staying in the house all by himself, but Elissa thinks differently. Elissa is drawn to Ryan's quiet, sensitive nature, and perhaps also by the chance to <more>
draw him out of his shell. But the local legend is that Ryan's sister is still out there somewhere, watching and waiting for another chance to strike Don't think of House at the End of the Street as a slasher film. True, the story could work as a slasher, but director Mark Tonderai has created a film that rises above many of the usual genre clichés. The story is well-written and built around mystery and suspense rather than cheap shocks, and even though most of the main characters are teenagers, the film doesn't take them down the usual paths.The cast is outstanding. Jennifer Lawrence makes Elissa likable but not without flaws. She is smart and caring, brave and resourceful, and in many ways an atypical teenager, but all the same a young woman who makes some bad decisions throughout the movie, decisions that may have lethal consequences for herself and others. In short, she's a great protagonist that is easy to identify with. Elizabeth Shue likewise does well as Sarah, plagued by paranoia and too much drink but determined to forge a stronger relationship between her daughter and herself...if she doesn't drive her away forever first. Max Thieriot handles the touchy role of Ryan just right, capturing all the nuances of a town outcast living under the shadow of an urban legend with surprising deftness. Together, the performers ensure the story seems populated by real people of flesh and blood.In some ways, House at the End of the Street echoes that great classic of horror cinema, Psycho. Of course, the current film isn't nearly as good as Psycho, but there are a lot of shared elements which can't entirely be coincidental. Compared to many other horror films, House at the End of the Street may seem a bit bloodless, but that's only because the filmmakers realize it takes more to make a good movie than lots of bloodshed. House at the End of the Street is a fine horror film that delivers the scares without sacrificing good sense.
