Jennifer Lawrence discovers the secret of THE HOUSE AT THE END OF THE STREET in this trailer

If there’s one young star that has definitely taken Hollywood by storm, it’s Jennifer Lawrence. The Oscar nominated actress has already shown that she can do smaller indie drama with Winter’s Bone and until Tony Stark and his Band of Merry Men showed up, she was the queen of the 2012 blockbuster box office with The Hunger Games.

So what’s up next for the talented young lady? Why, prove that you can look hot in a white vest while running away from psycho little girls in a basement of course!

I must say, I like how the trailer tries to pull a bait-and-switch by starting off like some new teenage romantic drama, and then suddenly laying the creepiness on you. But once we reach that point though, I feel that far too much gets revealed.

With this type of regularly used premise, it’s not as if any horror fan worth his/her salt wouldn’t have been able to see the twists and turns coming from a mile off, but I would have liked them to hold something back instead of giving away all the scary moments just to sell Lawrence’s terrified and heaving bosom to us.

Synopsis:

Seeking a fresh start, newly divorced Sarah (Oscar®-nominee Elisabeth Shue; Leaving Las Vegas, Piranha 3D) and her daughter Elissa (Oscar®-nominee Jennifer Lawrence; The Hunger Games, X-Men: First Class) find the house of their dreams in a small, upscale, rural town. But when startling and unexplainable events begin to happen, Sarah and Elissa learn the town is in the shadows of a chilling secret. Years earlier, in the house next door, a daughter killed her parents in their beds, and disappeared – leaving only a brother, Ryan (Max Thieriot, My Soul to Take), as the sole survivor.  Against Sarah’s wishes, Elissa begins a relationship with the reclusive Ryan – and the closer they get, the deeper they’re all pulled into a mystery more dangerous than they ever imagined.
