House at the End of the Street trailer is odd but good
The trailer for House at the End of the Street is rather an odd trailer to watch, but at the same time it's rather good. It does show a little too much vest action for Jennifer Lawrence who, to her credit, does look genuinely scared, but it does look genuinely creepy with the creepy murders and the reverse timeline.
The film also features the equally gorgeous Elisabeth Shue along with Max Thieriot and Gil Bellows and comes from writer David Loucka who wrote it from Jonathan Mostow's story, Loucka previously wrote Dreamhouse, and director Mark Tonderai who previously directed The Four Feathers.
The House at the End of the Street tells the story of a mother and daughter who rent a house in a new town, a house they managed to be able to afford because of the double murder that occurred next door. The murder saw a young girl kill her two parents and the surviving son still lives in the house.
You can see where this is going although the trailer does seem to suggest he might not be alone in the house.
It's a really good trailer because it's the kind that has me wanting to go back and watch it again, not only are the two lead female characters gorgeous and great actresses, but Jennifer Lawrence is in a vest top for most of it. I mean it looks like they give strong performances and the film itself looks pretty spooky with strong production values.
House at the End of the Street isn't due to be released in Argentina and the USA until 20th/21st September with an Australian release on the 8th November which is rather surprising considering how strong it looks from the trailer. Either it's a really good trailer and a bad film or this is the push to get a larger distribution going, if it's the latter then I think they might do it rather easily.
Here's the trailer for House at the End of the Street which comes through First Showing.
It's an interesting style choice, and while I'm not entirely sure it works throughout the trailer it does deliver at the end. Still, it does tell us a little of what is behind all the creepy goings on and the story of the son looking after the house. A bit too much perhaps?
