Summary: Okay why is this movie called the house at the end of the street but in the movie they are in the wood's thought out the movie.the house at the end of the street. this is so far the worst movie of 2012 I mean the acting is terrible and they are lot of annoying jump scares.and this movie will get a 1/4 star's "don't watch or buy this movie".
Excerpt: I was expecting a little more Horror then there was in the film. The suspense of what was going to happen intensified as it went along. Story was good and PQ was good even if it had some grain to it (grain does not bother me ~ It is part of the film...) Had a really good sound track to it. Good film to have in the collection.
Summary: Even with It actress Jennifer Lawrence, I couldn't get into this by-the-books thriller. It seems to try too hard for what turns out to be a completely average result. Bah - after seeing her as Katniss and in Silver Linings, this seems just so... below her - even if she still looks great.
Excerpt: I was really curious about this movie. After many trips and passing it up for other purchases, I decided to buy and give it a try. The movie has a really cool slip cover, which I am a huge fan of. The movie starts out great and the character interaction As well. However, about midway through things absolutely started to make the movie lose its main pushing point. If it had not been for the girl starring in it from The Hunger Games, I doubt I would have watched.
Excerpt: I really liked the first half of the movie where the 2 characters are bonding but then the second half of the movie just makes you feel terrible and you're just like....why...is...this...happening...what happened to my dam teen romance movie!?!? oh yeah, it's a "horror" (-_- ) PQ is not bad but nothing spectacular and yes it does have a bit of grain (Id say about the same amount as the movie "the Grey") I kinda like grain anyway.
Summary: Not a great movie but still good to the end! I figured this would be a typical creepy neighbor type horror flick and in a way it was exactly that but with an interesting little twist. I found the dynamics of the mother-daughter relationship to be quite believable. I found it a little difficult to sympathize with the character Ryan until the very end when it was revealed what he had endured in his childhood.
Excerpt: I had exceedingly high expectations for this movie. Mostly because it had a great premise and the grain they were filming in was meant to give it an old school feel. However, it's not what I thought it would be. It takes a solid hour, plus a few minutes, to really get in to the story...which is fine. I love a slow build. This one starts off with a creepy feeling and you don't really know what direction it's going to take until closer to the end.
Excerpt: Movie : Predictable movie, the acting is OK but not outstanding. Elizabeth Shue has aged (she was pretty in Piranha part 1). Sorry to say that movie is not special and actually disappointing. This is not a horror movie but more like a psycho movie. PQ : Grainy Picture. Color not vibrant but sharp. SQ : Good Overall : Rent the movie first, only you buy if you liked it.
Excerpt: I saw this during its theater release. Thought it was good. Suspenseful, full of action. The ending was a twist, for sure. Only drawback - I do not like Elizabeth Shue (her acting is terrible, IMO, and the reason I stopped watching "CSI") PQ is good, but a little too grainy for my liking. Grain is minimal, but still there. Audio is excellent.
Excerpt: With a movie that has such a generic title, you might think that it’s a red herring. The Cabin in the Woods was a similar situation, and it ended up being one of my favorite horror satires of all-time. House at the End of the Street is not horror satire; in fact, it is the exact kind of movie that horror satires make fun of.
