House at the End of the Street

Jennifer Lawrence (Hunger Games) stars in this '70s-style horror thriller aimed at teen audiences. Lawrence plays Elissa, a young woman who moves to a new town with her overprotective single mom (Elisabeth Shue, now forever condemned to mom duty). In short order, Elissa befriends the cute boy next door (Max Thieriot, The Pacifier). Turns out his parents were bludgeoned to death years ago under mysterious circumstances. Alarm bells should be ringing, but our heroine hangs around long enough to unearth some deadly secrets concerning the titular domicile. The filmmakers at least have the good sense to toss in some Hitchcock-style plot twists. 101 minutes PG-13.
Times and listings are for Friday 12/26 through Thursday 1/1
