After the baffling first trailer for director Mark Tonderai’s new horror, The House at the End of the Street’, things got much better with the second trailer. Now things really get dark as the third trailer has now landed, and you can view it at the bottom of this post!
I was a little unsure about this one, but thankfully this new trailer has me sold and the film looks mighty impressive. There are cliches galore in this trailer, but sometimes its those faithful, safe ideas which can often reward more than someone trying something new. This kind of looks like your typical psycho next door type flick, but there are plenty of hints at some really dark undertones, and the possibility of something more going on than the trailer is allowing us to see, and that is a good thing.
Directed by Mark Tonderai and written by David Loucka and Jonathan Mostow, the film stars Jennifer Lawrence, Elisabeth Shue, Max Thieriot and Gil Bellows. The horror is due to arrive in US and UK cinemas 21st September.
Seeking a fresh start, newly divorced Sarah (Oscar(R)-nominee Elisabeth Shue; Leaving Las Vegas, Piranha 3D) and her daughter Elissa (Oscar(R)-nominee Jennifer Lawrence; X-Men: First Class, Winter’s Bone) find the house of their dreams in a small, upscale, rural town. But when startling and unexplainable events begin to happen, Sarah and Elissa learn the town is in the shadows of a chilling secret. Years earlier, in the house next door, a daughter killed her parents in their beds, and disappeared – leaving only a brother, Ryan (Max Thieriot, My Soul to Take), as the sole survivor. Against Sarah’s wishes, Elissa begins a relationship with the reclusive Ryan – and the closer they get, the deeper they’re all pulled into a mystery more dangerous than they ever imagined.
