A trippy trailer for House at the End of the Street with Jennifer Lawrence arrives
For everyone who is still "hungering" for more Jennifer Lawrence after seeing her in some little known movie currently in theaters, the trailer for her new film, HOUSE AT THE END OF THE STREET should tide you over for a bit.
It's a very MEMENTO-ish trailer with lots of reverse imagery, heavy breathing, wide eyes, and beautiful, beautiful boobies in a tight shirt. Also, an unfortunate confirmation that the film is rated PG-13.
Get acquainted with the neighbors:
Meh, looks all right, I suppose, but let's be mature about this; the real sell is Jennifer Lawrence and that white tank top. As a kid, one of the biggest selling points for horror films was the likelihood of seeing the leading ladies boobs. It didn't always happen, but you had a much better chance with an R-rated slasher flick than with others. However, that ugly PG-13 robs me of that hope.
I can't sit here and champion how great the story looks, because unless they have some kind of M. Night Shyamalan ending in this thing, the trailer pretty much lays the whole damn thing out.
Here's an official synopsis to get you caught up:
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.
|Extra Tidbit:||It always brings a smile to my face to see my beloved Elizabeth Shue appearing in a new film. She is and always will be one of the best childhood crushes from the 80's.|
