If she thought attempting to kill 23 other kids were bad, it looks like Jennifer Lawrence‘s worst fear is yet to come. Coming off her mega-hit The Hunger Games, the actress is starring in her obligatory horror film and we’ve got the first trailer today. Mark Tonderai‘s House at the End of the Street follows the teenager and her mother (Elisabeth Shue) who move into a new house and, as you can guess, there is something mysterious in the house next door. Max Thieriot (Chloe, My Soul to Take) plays the creepy neighbor, a teen whose family has been murdered. The teaser below has some neat imagery that might differentiate it from your usual slasher, but I think my favorite thing is Relativity using the acronym & hashtag #HATES to build buzz. Check it out below via MTV.
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 21st.
