While it had an interesting premise there were just too many plot holes in this movie. The mother is supposed to have been a teenage mom who married her musician boyfriend, but still had the time and money to become a doctor. After the murders Ryan was said to have lived in the house with an Aunt for five years. The same Aunt who he had been living with for the previous six years. Apparently no one in town ever saw or spoke with this women and no one thought it strange. There are plenty more.
Acting is ok since they had very little story to work with. My guess is if Hunger Games had not been a huge success this would have gone straight to DVD.

I'm a mid 30-s woman that attended this movie, with much anticipation and expectation, with my boyfriend who is also in his mid-30s. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY! By the last quarter of the movie, everyone was kind of having personal conversations waiting it out because it was SO bad. Long, drawn out plot that is FILLED WITH TEENAGER STORYLINES and ACTING. The ONLY REASON people are rating this movie as GO/MUST GO is because of the twist at the VERY end of the movie. NOT worth it to me!!! I wouldn't even rent this horrible movie. I don't know what people are thinking, but this was NOT a good movie!

I was surprised that this movie was actually pretty good. It seemed to be just another teen slasher movie, but it ended up being a little more complex and took a couple of turns. Jennifer Lawrence delivers as a street smart teen who has a strong independent streak. She definitely owns this movie and I am looking forward to seeing her in other roles. Elisabeth Shue has a relatively small part as the overprotective mother. It is kind of strange seeing her in such a small role. She still looks very good. This movie is worth a look...

Haven't seen a good scary movie in awhile and House At The End Of The Woods was great! After the movie, this was all we talked about! Had a VERY surprising ending that I didn't expect. I give it 10 out of 10 stars! Best movie in a long, long time! Kept my attention the whole time, never a dull moment in the movie. Gives you that "edge of the seat thril"l, too! Ignore the negative comments and JUST SEE IT! =] You won't be disappointed!

My husband & I almost walked out of the movie because the beginning was so slow and seemed to be the same plot of a bunch of movies we had already seen. I'm glad we didn't leave because there was a great twist and I really ended up enjoying the movie in the end. The beginning really lags, but then it gets better.
