Yes, there are the requisite jump-in-your-seat scares, many of them false alarms, and it all plays out basically exactly like any other...

I doubt that Lawrence is conscious of this process. Nevertheless, stuck in a dull commercial feature, a very good actor happens upon a new...

Boxoffice Magazine

By Pete Hammond
This PG-13 scare-fest is more psychological terror than blood and guts, and should satisfy-not repulse-young genre fans.

Despite an intriguing setup, sharply drawn central characters and a lead performance from the luminous Jennifer Lawrence that elevates the...

A few old favourites – like the inconveniently wonky torch and the probably-not-quite-killed maniac – deliver the required jolts, but early...

We will simply be grateful she (Lawrence) is here, and thus able to turn generic junk into mildly interesting junk.

Most of the comedy, however, is unintentional. House At The End of the Street may not draw much of an audience during its initial run, but...

The film is essentially toothless, but it never stoops to humorless torture-porn theatrics.

This is the rare horror film so bad that you almost wish it had turned into a good old connect-the-gory-dots slasher movie. The only...

It was okay.

By michy7896
I knew the PG-13 rating would limit the scare factor in the film and it really did. It had a good plot and good acting. I think the blood and such was really toned down because of Jennifer's fan...

The house at the ens of the street

By mrfallreev
It must be me, because I jumped out of my skin several times. I wonder sometimes, if I am watching the same movie as everybody else when I read reviews from people who recommend not seeing something...

Not What You Would Expect

By melissa.ronnan
I thought this was a haunting movie but it was much better. All of the actors were great, especially Jennifer Lawrence :D The end of the movie really pulls everything together and will leave you...

A By The Numbers Formula Thriller.

By Alon Patterson
Nothing new here but the movie's still worth a ticket. The entire production, play, talent, audio and video are mainstream average, as films go. There are plenty of conflicts, lots of resolutions,...

A THRILL RIDE FROM BEGINNING TO END!!!

By KDT
We went into this movie thinking it was gonna be another one of those horror movies that would scare the stuff out of us, but it was more of a thriller than anything which in our opinion made it work...

Great Thriller

By twschaible
Can't believe the poor reviews - this was an exciting movie. It was a mind twister with all the puzzle pieces coming together. Some very scary parts!! It is well worth the ticket, sit back and...

HATES

By anchorgirl08
Overall, a pretty good movie. Not really scary, but more of a thriller. It will keep you guessing most of the time. Ending definitley has a twist you won't expect! The acting is good from everyone....

House at the End of the Street

By ffastje
The Movie is just OK. It is worth seeing if you dont have anything else you want to see. The story seems it has been done before and the acting is pretty good. PG 13 is a good rating for this movie...

Not worth seeing

By misslantz
The preview for this movie is better than the actual movie itself. I about fell asleep during it. Its not at all scary and not what you think its about either. Dont see it!...

House at the End of the Street

By gatret
Not the worst I've ever seen but definitely not the best! Not the least bit realistic. Very much like a remake of an old 60's movie. Blah!...
