Shot before the tween franchise, "The House At The End Of The Street" is little scare pic that co-stars Elisabeth Shue and Max Theriot (”Jumper”), is directed by Mark Tonderai (”Hush”) and was written by David Loucka (”Dream House”). The thriller tells the story of a mother (Shue) and daughter (Lawrence) who move to a new town, only to discover their house was the place where a family was slaughtered, and a lone survivor, a young man (Theriot), still lives there. The two kids embark on a romance, but soon darker secrets come to the surface.
“I wanted to talk about how a parent’s love can help us or hinder us in becoming the people we are,” the director told EW. “It’s very much about a girl who’s becoming a woman, but her mother still feels she can do an audit on her life. The daughter is rebelling against that. She’s the petulant daughter, and [Shue] is the mother who doesn’t understand.” And what better way to tell that story than through a creaky genre flick.
Anyway, it opens on September 21st.
