House on the End of the Street

First slide

Wild, weird stuff going on in the sub-basement, but overall, a somewhat elegant psychological thriller overstuffed with spooky music and with less gore than an old episode of "Murder, She Wrote." Director Mark Tonderia and screenwriter David Loucka have crafted a tale that floats on the star power of Jennifer Lawrence, who plays 17-year-old Elissa Cassidy, a sensitive girl who likes to "rescue" others, including troubled neighbor Max Thieriot.

Watch out for: Gun and knife violence, fleeting crass language and a scene of drug use.

Rated: The Catholic News Service classification is A-III - adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 - parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
