FILM: HOUSE AT THE END OF THE STREET
Oscar nominee Jennifer Lawrence, fresh off her success in the worldwide hit ‘The Hunger Games’, and Oscar nominee Elisabeth Shue (‘Leaving Las Vegas’, ‘Piranha 3D’) star in this edge-of-your-seat psychological thriller about a teenager, Elissa, and her divorced mom, Sarah, who move into an upscale neighborhood to start a better life. But after they learn of rumours that the nearby woods are haunted by a homicidal killer, and Elissa befriends the mysterious sole survivor of a grisly double murder that took place in the house next door, their dreams for a brighter future spiral into a twisted nightmare.
Things go smoothly at first: Sarah (Shue) finds a good job and meets a nice guy while Elissa (Lawrence) settles in at school and finds herself drawn to the boy next door, Ryan (Max Thieriot, ‘My Soul to Take’). Ryan seems like a kindred spirit, misunderstood and passionate, and Elissa sympathizes with his isolation—he is still shunned by the town years after his deranged sister Carrie Anne murdered their parents in a fit of inexplicable rage.
But as Ryan and Elissa spend more time together, details of his past come to the surface. Finding out the truth could be the worst thing that ever happened to Elissa.
