Top Critic Reviews
Rotten: Shockingly uneventful, this horror film marks time until dropping its big, dumb reveal.
- A.A. Dowd, Time Out New York, Tuesday, September 25, 2012
Rotten: There are one or two clever plot twists that are subsequently followed up by a cavalcade of ridiculous, credibility-stretching ones.
- Alonso Duralde, The Wrap, Friday, September 21, 2012
Rotten: A thriller with a twisted ending that feels clumsy, laboured and unconvincing throughout.
- Bruce Demara, Toronto Star, Friday, September 21, 2012
Using the same old tired out horror formula that we've seen many times before; House at the end of the Street, along with Smiley is among the worst horror film this year. This is a pitiful attempt at trying to deliver an effective horror film. Instead of being scary, it just ends up being boring, dull, uninspired garbage that is definitely not worth your time. The film uses elements from other better films, and in the end, it's just a dull flick with a wasted good lead actress. The film is so poorly constructed that it doesn't do anything to try and thrill the viewer. This is a failure as a horror film, and it relies far too much on clichs to try and build its horror, tension and suspense, that there is no payoff to the film whatsoever. This is a lazy attempt at horror, and everything the filmmakers try to do with its material fails to do something exciting. I hated the film, and thought that this was a film that should never have been made because this is one of those films that we've seen many times before. The film tends to rely on cheap jump scares that really doesn't work, and in the end you're more in a state of sleepiness because there's nothing entertaining going on-screen. If you love horror films, avoid this, this is truly one of the most unoriginal films in the genre this year, and if you're expecting something effective in scare delivery, you'll be sadly disappointed. Everything with this film is predictable, and there are no scares to be had. Director Mark Tonderai clearly doesn't understand how to craft a solid horror picture, thus House at the End of the Street suffers greatly from a poor script and poor directing. Don't watch this one as it is truly a predictable film from start to finish.
