House at the End of the Street

I heard this was complete shit so my expectations were really low going in and I have to say it wasn’t that bad. The problem was that it was marketed as a horror but it didn’t have enough kills, jumps, or even suspense to qualify. The tone isn’t consistent. The beginning and end have that horror movie feel but the middle plays out like a Lifetime movie with little to no suspense. There’s also a point where Elizabeth Shue’s character buys Jennifer Lawrence’s make-up for an event but then gets mad at her when she thinks she went to the event which just doesn’t work. The twist at the end works but it shifts the tone/pace and the whole Psycho-like ending feels more like a cliché than an homage. I still love Elizabeth Shue and Jennifer Lawrence, I just question what made them decide to make this movie.
