House at the End of the Street is an American horror movie about a deadly family secret in a rural suburban area. When divorcee Sarah and her teenage daughter Elissa find the house of their dreams in a small suburban town, they could not be happier. Both women are ready for a fresh start. They move from Chicago to their house in a quiet wooded area. But shortly after moving in, strange things start to happen. Elissa and Sarah uncover a terrifying secret. They discover that a girl named Carrie-Ann had killed her sleeping parents in their bed just four years prior in the house next door. Not only was she never convicted of the double murder but she disappeared that night. Her brother Ryan is the only survivor. While the rumor around town is that Carrie-Ann drowned in the woods, her body is never found.
Ryan is a loner. He lives by himself in the house that his parents were murdered in. He is disliked by his neighbors because the brutal nature of his parent's deaths is negatively affecting their property values. The neighbors collectively seek to purchase his property and demolish the home but Ryan stubbornly refuses to sell. When Ryan meets Elissa he is immediately intrigued. She is strong-minded, smart as a whip, and independent. Likewise Elissa is attracted to his mysterious demeanor. Little does she know that there is much more to Ryan than meets the eye.
Despite the disapproval of her mother, Elissa and Ryan start dating. He reveals to her that Carrie-Ann's murderous nature may have been the result of an injury she sustained while swinging one day. He explains that she suffered brain damage during the incident and had been much more aggressive since the injury. He feels personally responsible for the damage that he may have caused her. Ryan explains that the only reason he survived is because his parents had sent him away to care for his sick aunt before the night of the murders. As Elissa and Ryan grow closer, a series of strange events begin to unfold, revealing the danger that lurks in the house at the end of the street.
The movie was digitally shot, giving it a sleek look. Low camera angles and masterfully shot forest scenes make this horror film even more chilling. The film features some strong actors including Jennifer Lawrence, Elisabeth Shue and Max Thieriot.
Jennifer Lawrence can't seem to land a role in which she isn't trying to escape someone aiming to kill her. The star of "The Hunger Games" will soon be making an appearance in "House at the End of the Street," and you can watch the trailer right here!
