    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    We will simply be grateful she (Lawrence) is here, and thus able to turn generic junk into mildly interesting junk. show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    Despite an intriguing setup, sharply drawn central characters and a lead performance from the luminous Jennifer Lawrence that elevates the material a few notches, House at the End of the Street is a by-the-book horror thriller that's low on scares and suspense. show more

    Sara Stewart New York Post

    Yes, there are the requisite jump-in-your-seat scares, many of them false alarms, and it all plays out basically exactly like any other horror movie, but Lawrence does elevate the proceedings. show more

    Rick Groen The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    I doubt that Lawrence is conscious of this process. Nevertheless, stuck in a dull commercial feature, a very good actor happens upon a new solution to an age-old problem: She improves the script by transcending it, and steals the picture by abandoning it. show more

    Most of the comedy, however, is unintentional. House At The End of the Street may not draw much of an audience during its initial run, but the movie's preposterousness certifies it for future midnight screenings, where the story will get the jeering it deserves. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    This is a terrible little movie even by the standards of the genre. show more

    Slant Magazine

    The film is essentially toothless, but it never stoops to humorless torture-porn theatrics. show more

    Pete Hammond Boxoffice Magazine

    This PG-13 scare-fest is more psychological terror than blood and guts, and should satisfy-not repulse-young genre fans. show more

    Kim Newman Empire

    A few old favourites – like the inconveniently wonky torch and the probably-not-quite-killed maniac – deliver the required jolts, but early promise dwindles to hokum. show more

    Neil Smith Total Film

    Sadly, any hopes Mark Tonderai's US follow-up to 2008's "Hush" could have some "Cabin In The Woods"-style surprises up its sleeve are swiftly dashed as its talented lead is reduced to being just another scantily clad babe getting stalked by a psycho. show more

    I saw this movie the day it was released to theaters. It wasn\'t scary. it\'s not Jennifer Lawrence\'s best movie but let\'s be ************ a \'b\' movie which every actress/actor has to through at one time or another. Jennifer was great.

    I had high hopes for this movie, but I was really dissapointed. I would wait for dvd release.

    My friend and I saw this movie last night and LOVED IT! Not so much a \"scary\" movie but definitely a thriller movie that we thought had a great twist. We left the movie and kept talking about it... even saying \"good choice\" regarding our movie pick. We will definitely recommend to friends. If you go in expecting some jumps, screams, and Jason/Michael Myers type of flick, then you\'ll be let down but the story and twist is what makes it good.

    This movie started off really good for about an hour, then dramatically went downhill. This movie had so much potential to be so much better and ending up being such a disappointment. Too many long and drawn out scenes that went nowhere. I guess one of the biggest pros to the movie was seeing Elizabeth Shue, a childhood crush.

    Saw it and hated it. Don\'t even waste your time or money on this movie. There are so many unnecessary twists that it becomes annoying. I wouldn\'t even rent this on Redbox. Quickly, there\'s still time! Don\'t waste your money!

    We loved the movie. A great thriller with a twist. Very entertaining and scary. See it, you will agree.
