House at the End of the Street (2012)

Looking back on this tame horror thriller, it’s almost hard to believe that Jennifer Lawrence would quickly become such a superstar. Her performance here is lifeless and disinterested, however no one could blame her for that, given the almost complete lack of characterization, as well as a laborious and uninteresting plot. Elisabeth Shue is mostly wasted in a role that demands little of her, while Max Thieriot seems a bit lost as the boy next door. This is for Lawrence die-hards only, really.

Tidbit: I worked a few days on this movie as a set dresser, for the diner and house party scenes.

Rating: ★★ (out of 5)
