There was nothing "wrong" with this movie, but I get the impression most of the people who are giving it 5 stars and saying it was "edge of your seat suspense" and "chilling" are younger viewers.

Anybody over age 30 has probably seen this same story at least half a dozen times by now.

I would have probably given it another star if I had not heard so much praise for the film beforehand.

But the movie did not live up to the hype.

It was pretty much a "by the numbers" horror film that borrows very, very, very heavily from the Grand-daddy of horror films that started this whole Genre --- PSYCHO

No real twists, pretty much what you expect and are waiting for from beginning to end.

So certainly not bad, but not the "masterpiece of suspense that will keep you from sleeping" that so many proclaimed it to be.

The first hour of this movie, my husband and I made fun of it and almost turned it off. What we thought was the premise was ridiculous, so we couldn't take it seriously. I even questioned why Jennifer Lawrence had agreed to be in this film, as her other movies are usually decent. I'm glad we kept watching, because the plot twist was pretty great. I usually guess the plot twist, but this one got me good. Not the greatest scary or suspenseful movie, but worth the watch if you've got nothing better to do.

It seems like only yesterday that Jennifer Lawrence made her big screen debut in Winters Bone, a small scale but critically acclaimed movie which gained her an Oscar nomination.

Since then she has gone from strength to strength starring in two of the biggest box office successes we have seen in the last two years X Men First Class and Hunger Games. I think it's fair to say that her rise has been meteoric.

As I watched the movie and the camera's love affair with her, the thought went through my mind several times of what an exquisite looking creature she truly is, still young enough to play a teenager.

A grisly murder of two parents takes place in a remote house in a leafy suburb of an upscale neighborhood of a typical rural town. The daughter who killed them was never found thus stoking local legend that she is still running around loose.

Years later a mother played by Elisabeth Shue and her daughter Elissa (Jennifer) move to said town they end up in a house nearby from which the slightly rundown, seemingly abandoned and spooky murder house is visible. Cue the scary music when Jennifer looks through the trees and sees the house light unexpectedly come on. Wooh.

As Elissa adjusts to school life her curiosity ensures familiarity with the story, and then one night walking in the rain a car stops to offer her a ride home, and the driver is the current occupant of the scary house the only surviving member of the family. Does she get in the car or keep walking?

Elissa and her mother have one of those fractious relationships and her mother forbids her from having anything to do with the occupant of the house but Elissa is attracted to him and teens will be teens.

I don't know what some of these people are talking about. There was nothing predictable about this movie. I am a huge thriller/horror fan. I've seen everything and lately there hasn't been anything good coming into the theater's. Typically you watch five minutes of a movie and you know how it will end. I thought it would be the same with this movie. IT ISN'T! It's awesome! Jennifer Lawrence does a GREAT job!!! Loved this movie...in the theater....and can't wait to go and see it again. It is a definite "must see" if you are a horror movie fan!!!

Bad acting, bad story line, don't waste your money! This movie is not even a little scary,and is very predictable. The only reason I finished it is because I paid for it.

Sarah has been recently divorced and she has searched for a new beginning with her daughter, Elissa. They search for the house of their dreams and are happy with one they chose in a small, rural town. But, unexpected events begin to happen and Sarah and Elissa discover that the town is hiding some kind of chilling secret. It has been known that the house next to Sarah many years earlier had a horrible murder take place as a daughter killed her parents and vanished, leaving one sole survivor, a brother. His name is Ryan and against Sarah's wishes, he begins to date Elissa. The closer they become in their relationship, the More dangerous it gets as they are pulled into a terrifying mystery. This thriller is very dramatic and eerie with intense suspense. Who survives the nightmare at the 'House At The End Of The Street?' Great acting performance and edge-of-your-seat suspense. Highly Recommended for thriller, mystery, and horror lovers!

Remember "Disturbia"? It had the gall to reimagine Alfred Hitchcock's classic "Rear Window" as a teen slasher movie, starring a pre-"Transformers" Shia Labeouf in James Stewart's stead.

Why do I bring this up? Because "House at the End of the Street" might as well be a sequel to "Disturbia," since it takes the same tack of trying to turn a classic Hitchcock movie into a teen horror movie. The one thing that it has going for it is that instead of Shia Labeouf, this movie has the always-wonderful Jennifer Lawrence -- and at times, she feels like its sole saving grace.

Elissa Cassidy (Lawrence) and her newly-divorced mom Sarah (Elisabeth Shue) have just moved into their dream home, in an idyllic upper-crust community full of selfish snobs. Elissa isn't particularly enthusiastic about their new life, but she quickly makes some friends and even is recruited into a rock band at her school (which allows Jennifer Lawrence a chance to show off her lovely singing voice).

But there's a dark side to their neighborhood. Four years ago, Carrie Ann Jacobson slaughtered her parents and seemingly drowned herself -- and now the only living member of the family is Ryan (Max Thieriot), a shy young man who is despised by the whole neighborhood. Why? He's driving their property values down. Seriously.

Despite Sarah's wishes, Elissa becomes intrigued by Ryan, and even sneaks off to spend time with him in his abandoned house. But Elissa doesn't know what Ryan has been hiding in the basement, and what might happen if she were to learn the secrets he's been keeping. When she figures out the truth, Elissa becomes a prisoner facing a fate worse than death.
