In development for almost nine years, House at the End of the Street makes one wonder how such a generic piece of crap could have been made at all. Jennifer Lawrence plays Elissa, a high-schooler who moves with her mom to a home that’s next door to a place where a girl murdered her parents. She befriends the only family member left, Ryan (Max Thieriot), but, of course, he harbors a dark secret. The first half of the film acts almost as a demo reel for a singing career for Lawrence, who apparently just finished her studies at the Kristen Stewart Acting School—she’s completely wooden and vacant. Not enough bad things can be said about this film.
