House at the End of the Street is a new horror/thriller flick starring everyone’s favorite Katniss, Jennifer Lawrence. This film just kind of popped up all of the sudden. I did not even remember hearing about it in the beginning stage. The rise of Jennifer Lawrence after The Hunger Games is probably going to help this film out more than it would have before. The film also stars Elisabeth Shue, Max Thieriot, and Gil Bellows. The film surrounds the mystery of a double murder committed by a young daughter. The son was the only one to survive and still lives in the same house. Jennifer Lawrence and Elisabeth Shue play a mother and daughter who move in nearby. Obviously something goes awry or this would not be a good story.
I really like the first trailer. It goes backward in time. It would be cool if the whole film was like that, but the second trailer has a more normal timeline.
“Seeking a fresh start, newly divorced Sarah (Oscar®-nominee Elisabeth Shue; Leaving Las Vegas, Piranha 3D) and her daughter Elissa (Oscar®-nominee Jennifer Lawrence; The Hunger Games, X-Men: First Class) 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. Years earlier, in the house next door, a daughter killed her parents in their beds, and disappeared – leaving only a brother, Ryan (Max Thieriot, My Soul to Take), as the sole survivor. Against Sarah’s wishes, Elissa begins a relationship with the reclusive Ryan – and the closer they get, the deeper they’re all pulled into a mystery more dangerous than they ever imagined.”
House at the End of the Street is in theatres September 21, 2012.
