The Trailer For HOUSE AT THE END OF THE STREET Is Ass-Backwards!!
The Kidd here...
Ass-backwards here isn't meant to be an insult... it's just the way it is as Relativity's first trailer for HOUSE AT THE END OF THE STREET elects to show you moments from towards the end of the movie first and then build back to the beginning.
MTV debuted the trailer today, and I'm not really sure what benefit a trailer like this has, unless it's purposely trying to confuse the intended audience. This isn't going the MEMENTO route of working backwards, so how is this really selling a linear thriller?

acting ability being wasted in a run-of-the-mill horror movie. Is this just a quota that needs to be filled by all up and coming stars?
March 29, 2012, 6:52 p.m. CST
...they've got some nerve picking and choosing which prepositions to leave out of their hashtag abbreviations. This movie will probably suck but I will wait for a new poster to be released before making a final and incontestable judgment.

Having said that, i'd go down on Elizabeth Shue or Jennifer Lawrence for several hours.

Elizabeth Shue is the sister. You see her with dark hair at one point, and the killer is a girl with dark hair. Lawrence, your movie made 200 million. You do NOT gotta eat. Why are you making this shit?

She's sooooooooooooo fucking sexy, and yet, at the same time in the least sexiest way, in all of Hollywood. If that makes sense (I'm plenty aware it probably doesn't lol but fuck it, I'm just far more higher minded thinkers than the rest of you lol)<br> <br> I mean, for as should as she so is, there's still an uncanny level of maturity come from her and that she's so totally the anti-hottie actress. Dare I say it... yes, dare I say it... (not on straight equivalent looks, mind you, obviously) There's something downright Grace Kelly-esque about her.

2nd para should read "I mean, for as *YOUNG* as she still is, there's still an uncanny level... etc"
March 29, 2012, 7:43 p.m. CST
Yea, I'm saying very unlikely that that way this is "mysteriously" cut together with all these rewind plays of mini scenes, that that will have a genuine, satisfying payoff with whatever the big bad ending of this movie will be.

I think she did this movie a while ago, was shelved, then marketed based on her new popularity. Not 100% certain about that, but I've read it in at least two other places.

My dream girl ever since I saw The Karate Kid. Glad she is getting back into some more recognizable flicks.

Jennifer Lawrence and Elizabeth Shue are living in a horrible house beset with all kinds of horrible things. People run around, lamps fall over and children leap out of the pool. She thinks the guy next door is responsible for something or other but shags him anyway. Eventually they come to terms with living their wretched home and come to love it
March 30, 2012, 7:48 a.m. CST
I'm not sure who studios put in charge of marketing anymore but yeah that was a poor choice.

"What would you do, if the house you lived in.......had staircases everywhere......" *Jennifer running up stairs." *Jennifer running down stairs." "What if you had to run up and down those STAIRCASES for HOURS...AT...A..TIME..." *Jennifer running up stairs." *Jennifer running down stairs." 55M opening weekend.
