3.0 out of 5 stars If you are over 30, you have seen this story many times before, April 5, 2013
This review is from: House at the End of the Street (DVD)
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.

Horror films don't tend to scare me anyway. However, even if they did I would still agree with you.

I'm in a J. Lawrence mode at present because of "The Burning Plain" and "Silver Linings Playbook"
(I'll throw in "American Hustle" as well but I haven't watched it in over a year) so it's good to read
a "not-too-overly-complimentary" take on this piece. I'm just curious 'cause I like her work in said
flicks and am forever looking for a worthwhile addition to the collection. D. Park and 007's responses
re-enforce your writing as well.
