Continuing its buying spree, new distrib on the block Relativity has acquired horror film House at the End of the Street for stateside release in 2012. The film follows a just-moved-in teen (Jennifer Lawrence) who discovers that she and her mother (Elisabeth Shue) live across the street from the site of a double murder; they befriend the surviving son (Max Thieriot) who still lives there. Word is, House at the End of the Street hopes to be to Psycho what Shia LaBeouf’s 2007 Disturbia was to Rear Window. Glenn Basner's FilmNation Entertainment, which produced and reps the film around the world, closed the deal for U.S. rights well ahead of Cannes.
