If you threw Memento, Scream, and Se7en into a blender the end product would probably resemble that trailer. I’m not surprised to see the ad pushing Jennifer Lawrence front and center after her recent rise to fame in Hunger Games and X-Men, but I am curious to see where her career goes from here. She’s the real deal: an actor that can pull of meaty roles with remarkable screen presence, and I’m excited to watch her career unfold.
Here’s the flick’s official synopsis:
Seeking a fresh start, newly divorced Sarah (Oscar-nominee Elisabeth Shue; “Leaving Las Vegas,” “Piranha 3D”) and her daughter Elissa (Oscar-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.
House At The End Of The Street opens on September 21, 2012.
