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.

This is one of those movies that is an okay rental but nothing too spectacular here. Girl moves into new neighborhood next to creepy old house and then slowly things start to happen. I will say that the ending had a different twist but overall this was just okay at best.

I like to watch early movies of actors and actresses before they were anyone, and this 2011 movie fills the bill. Lawrence really needs direction, she often brings it on her own, but some of her scenes, especially the ones where she acts "concerned" or "making it" with the male lead are really bad --there's just no chemistry there. It's good to see Therioux (?) work pre Bates Motel, if this predated same, it surely helped him get the gig.

But all the protagonist "teenagers" have more maturity than college grads, it just doesn't sell the fact that these are supposed to be kids. Kids who actually wind up being "right" all along, I may add.

All the characters and the actors that portrayed them, is let down by a script with more plotholes than NY potholes after a freak snow storm.

So the five stars are for the film buffs out there. Your next "requirement" people, is to screen Serena. Lawrence did that "weepie" after this "creepie". Get to it.

I tend to enjoy mysteries and thrillers with interesting plots as opposed to repetitive slasher scenes and poor acting. This movie was one of the better modern thrillers I have seen for a while. Interesting plot and pretty good acting. If you lean towards psychological mysteries and intelligent thrillers, you will probably like this one.

This is a really good movie. I love movies that build suspense as opposed to relying on gore or shock value. Its so much more fun. Jennifer Lawrence actually does a great job in this one. The male character (not sure of name) is amazingly endearing and creepy all at the same time. the perfect bad guy who draws you in, elicits a little understanding, and then just flips a switch to become terrifying. He is intense and very convincing.
