House at the End of the Street (2012)

Director: Mark Tonderai

Stars: Jennifer Lawrence, Elisabeth Shue, Max Thieriot

Sarah and her daughter Elissa just moved into the house of their dreams in an upscale rural area. In the house next to them, there is a young college student, Ryan, that lives in his parents' house. His parents were killed by his sister that ran off. Elissa becomes way to interested and nosey with the subject of Ryan. Against her mother wishes, she starts to see him regularly. Most of the town does not like Ryan because of the occurrence that happened there with his family. There is something else going on inside Ryan's house that he is hiding from everyone.

This is another girl gets involved with local screwed up bad boy that no one likes in town. She is too much of a rocker to deal with the local jock rich kids that everyone likes, but those guys are the douche bags in the town. This story has been told so many times in different variations.

It really does seem that too many of those rich jock types in small towns are the worst people that you will ever meet on a personal level. The whole town loves them and they do no wrong, but they are usually the ones the cause so much trouble in real life as well in the movies. They are the assholes in life. Their families are always the first to defend their honor and never believe that their child could ever cause any harm. Look at the many young rape cases. Just a rant. It deals with the movie though.

This movie was worth watching, but it is not a rewatcher at all. Once you find out the entire plot, the movie becomes a bit lack luster. The cast was really good. It is still odd to see Elisabeth Shue in movies as a mother. She still looks great, and she will always be the girl from Adventures in Babysitting. Enjoy.
