Relatively Media sent along a few new images from “House at the End of the Street,” its latest thriller starring Jennifer Lawrence (“The Hunger Games”) about a mother and daughter who move in to a neighborhood where a daughter killed her parents.
I’m amused that the film’s initials are HATES, which I will no doubt find some way to use in the review if the movie is not worth the $45 ticket or whatever theaters are charging these days.
Secondly, it so disturbs me to no end that Elizabeth Shue is playing the mom. Shue is forever stuck in my head as “The Karate Kid’s” first girlfriend. She can’t be playing someone’s mom, can she??? Sigh.
Thrillers normally don’t do much for me as they get stuck playing the cliche game where I spend most of the movie counting how many horror/thriller crutches used. Hopefully this one will be different and assuming Lawrence and her team are smart, they wouldn’t have let her be the face and main draw of a bad movie and potentially kill of some of her buzz from “The Hunger Games.”
