House At The End Of The Street

Jennifer Lawrence is decent in an otherwise forgettable horror

When you consider the 2012 Jennifer Lawrence had - hitting the bullseye with The Hunger Games and guaranteeing another Oscar nod for Silver Linings Playbook - a blip like this is more likely to be quietly forgotten than slammed.

Lawrence is at least gutsier than your average modern scream queen, clashing with her mum (Elisabeth Shue) over a friendship with a local oddball orphaned by a family murder four years earlier.

A couple of unexpected plot turns are nullified by a reliance on overfamiliar ingredients, with the spooky lank-haired girl drawing more sighs than gasps.
