Second ‘House at the End of the Street’ Trailer Loses the Cleavage, Tells Us a Ghost Story

The first trailer for Mark Tonderai’s upcoming horror film House at the End of the Street gave us a glimpse of the haunted house horrors that its star Jennifer Lawrence would be encountering over the course of its runtime, but mostly it just existed to assure us that we would all be getting a nice long look at Lawrence’s boobs if we chose to go to the theater and buy a ticket. As effective as that marketing strategy probably is, going to the cleavage well twice in a row would have looked tacky, so the second trailer for House at the End of the Street jettisons the boobs almost completely and instead gives us a better feel for who these characters are and where the dangers they’re facing come from.

It seems that Lawrence is playing the new girl who just moved to town. One of the first people she meets in her new burg is a cute but haunted boy who’s got a lot of murder in his past (Max Thieriot). Townies say that his sister killed his parents died quite viciously and later drowned, but also there’s rumors that she may still be around…doing creepy things…over there in that spooky looking house. This is bad news for Lawrence’s well-being as well as for her budding romance with the boy.

Maybe that’s all for the best though. Do we really trust a guy that a horror movie heroine first encounters on a dark and stormy night? Especially one that she assures us is so sweet and nice in the trailer? House at the End of the Street is set to be released on September 21, but before then you should probably check out the new ad and come up with some half-baked theories of your own. [Apple]
