House at the End of the Street

Years earlier, in the house next door, a daughter killed her parents in their beds, and disappeared - leaving only a brother, Ryan (Max Thieriot), as the sole survivor.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Shockingly uneventful, this horror film marks time until dropping its big, dumb reveal."
‑ A.A. Dowd, Time Out New York
"There are one or two clever plot twists that are subsequently followed up by a cavalcade of ridiculous, credibility-stretching ones."
‑ Alonso Duralde, TheWrap
"An uncommonly tedious effort..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"A clunky, run-of-the-mill horror flick written by the same guy who penned last year's similarly themed disappointment, Dream House."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"House at the End of the Street reveals itself to be merely another forgettable PG-13 thriller banking on the brain-dead mall crowd to tweet their unending love for a crummy feast such as this."
‑ Jeremy Wheeler, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"A choppily edited, poorly timed mess with little continuity, overloaded with aural shocks in a desperate attempt to compensate for its minimal suspense."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"What could be so bad about a new Jennifer Lawrence movie that its distributor opts to keep it away from critics and release it with minimal ad support? Please, allow "House at the End of the Street" to answer that question."
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"It's made for - and presumably by - people who haven't ever seen a horror movie. What's even more frustrating is that its inherent ineptitude doesn't ever become entertaining in a "this is hilariously horrible" fashion."
‑ Richard Haridy, Quickflix
"It isn't very scary, but it does pile a bunch of really tasteless twists on towards the end that make no sense and it almost becomes a comedy. On one hand, is a failure as a horror film, but as an exercise in desperation, it's kind of a hoot"
‑ Eric Melin, Scene-Stealers.com
"The screenplay has a nice twist that could have supported a stylish giallo-style thriller; unfortunately, director Mark Tonderai delivers a mess -- an almost random tangle of choppy edits, handheld camera, 'shock' sound effects and other horror cliches."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"Tonderai steers the story cleanly around its queasy hairpin turns, perversely toying with one of pop cinema's most cherished clichés: the audience's inculcated desire to side with the underdog."
‑ Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice
"This is the rare horror film so bad you almost wish it had turned into a good old connect-the-gory-dots slasher movie. The only mystery at work is how Lawrence's agent ever let her sign on."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Ninety minutes of melodrama for ten minutes of a very derivative surprise ending."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"exactly what you'd expect from a PG-13 horror movie dropped in September. There's really nothing particularly scary about it, and the story ranges from shaky to thin"
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Formulaic, unoriginal suspense thriller aided by a plot twist and good leads, that might delight the less-gore-is-more teenage audience."
‑ Bruce Bennett, Spectrum (St. George, Utah)
