Lawrence of Suburbia.
A little better than its garbage reputation, as evidence by the support it got at the box office from its target audience, Mark Tonderai’s horror/thriller is safe genre film making. There’s no intelligence in the screenplay, no copious amounts of blood letting, the characters do dumb things and in truth it unfolds as a standard girl in peril movie. These things are what have led to it being savaged by critics, but backed by a trio of strong performances from Jennifer Lawrence, Elisabeth Shue and Max Thieriot, boosted by a genuine narrative surprise and the fact that Tonderai is able to do the peril motifs with suspenseful impact, ensures House at the End of the Street is at least a decent enough time waster. 5/10
_**Does a killer prowl the neighborhood or is it just local lore?**_
A mother and daughter (Elisabeth Shue & Jennifer Lawrence) move into a Pennsylvania suburb where a nearby abode was the scene of a double murder four years earlier, committed by a deranged girl named Carrie-Anne. She was thought to have drowned, but her body was never found and local legend suggests that she prowls the eerie woods. Meanwhile her brooding brother (Max Thieriot) lives on the property and is maltreated by some of the residents. Gil Bellows plays an officer that befriends the mother and is sympathetic toward the despondent young man.
“House at the End of the Street” (2012) is a coming-of-age drama mixed with mystery and horror of the slasher variety, but more realistic than a guy in a mask lurking around with a machete. It borrows story elements from “Psycho” (1960) and “Sleepaway Camp” (1983), but has the polished modern tone of flicks like “Solstice” (2008), “The Last House on the Left” (2009) and “My Soul to Take” (2010). It’s not great like “Psycho” or the remake of “Last House,” but it’s at least on par with “Solstice” and superior to “Sleepaway Camp” and “My Soul to Take.”
Jennifer looks great in her prime while Thieriot’s character makes for a sympathetic study. The lush Eastern locations are sumptuous and the relatively believable story holds your interest while offering some unexpected revelations. The feminine cast also includes Allie MacDonald, Eva Link and Jordan Hayes.
The film runs 1 hour, 41 minutes, and was shot in Metcalfe & Carp, Ontario, both outside of Ottawa.
Better than I expected
I was a little bit skeptical about watching this movie and I came very close to not watching it. But, because I had a spare couple of hours with nothing better to do, I decided to give it a whirl.
A lot of modern-day horror movies are made on a budget. The typical tell-tale signs which give them away is the use of poorly lit sets, very few filming locations and a very small cast of young and unknown actors. They like to follow the path of “The Blair Witch Project” and rely on heavy breathing to create the suspense. A pretty young lady starts to breathe heavily in the dark, something jumps out and gets her, right? Nowadays, this has become the norm and this is what we come to expect.
Well, I’m pleased to say that “House at the End of the Street” is different and unique in its own right. Why? Because its actually got a storyline and it keeps you thinking! Just when you think you’ve figured it all out there’s another clever twist that comes along and makes you think “Gee, why didn’t I think of that”. This is a movie which is always one step ahead of you! Also, the actors in this movie actually act. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not on the same page as an Alfred Hitchcock movie, but it is, nonetheless, very refreshing.
“House at the End of the Street” turned out to be a little gem. I’m glad that I rented it.
Mystery, Suspense, and a Little Horror Await at the House at the End of the Street
Young Elissa (Jennifer Lawrence) and her mother Sarah (Elizabeth Shue) think they are moving into a quiet, uneventful new home to reconnect and start over. The house next door is supposed to be empty, but late one night Sarah sees a light go on in the allegedly vacant edifice. Turns out a young man does live there, in the very house where his crazy sister murdered their parents years before. The townsfolk think young Ryan is crazy for staying in the house all by himself, but Elissa thinks differently. Elissa is drawn to Ryan’s quiet, sensitive nature, and perhaps also by the chance to draw him out of his shell. But the local legend is that Ryan’s sister is still out there somewhere, watching and waiting for another chance to strike
Don’t think of House at the End of the Street as a slasher film. True, the story could work as a slasher, but director Mark Tonderai has created a film that rises above many of the usual genre clichés. The story is well-written and built around mystery and suspense rather than cheap shocks, and even though most of the main characters are teenagers, the film doesn’t take them down the usual paths.
The cast is outstanding. Jennifer Lawrence makes Elissa likable but not without flaws. She is smart and caring, brave and resourceful, and in many ways an atypical teenager, but all the same a young woman who makes some bad decisions throughout the movie, decisions that may have lethal consequences for herself and others. In short, she’s a great protagonist that is easy to identify with. Elizabeth Shue likewise does well as Sarah, plagued by paranoia and too much drink but determined to forge a stronger relationship between her daughter and herself…if she doesn’t drive her away forever first. Max Thieriot handles the touchy role of Ryan just right, capturing all the nuances of a town outcast living under the shadow of an urban legend with surprising deftness. Together, the performers ensure the story seems populated by real people of flesh and blood.
In some ways, House at the End of the Street echoes that great classic of horror cinema, Psycho. Of course, the current film isn’t nearly as good as Psycho, but there are a lot of shared elements which can’t entirely be coincidental. Compared to many other horror films, House at the End of the Street may seem a bit bloodless, but that’s only because the filmmakers realize it takes more to make a good movie than lots of bloodshed. House at the End of the Street is a fine horror film that delivers the scares without sacrificing good sense.
