David Loucka

America’s kick-ass sweetheart Jennifer Lawrence is hot coming off of The Hunger Games which is probably why now is a great time for Relativity to toss out a trailer for House at the End of the Street which features a typical ghost story and an unnerving amount of wife-beater buoyancy from a costume designer and cinematographer who were clearly impressed with Lawrence’s acting assets. Seriously. They seem more concerned with her chest than the team behind The Unborn was with Odette Yustman’s ass in white underwear. Welcome to average horror film marketing. The story focuses on a mother and daughter (Elizabeth Shue and Lawrence) who move into an old house right next to one where a brutal homicide took place. The twist? It was a young girl who killed her parents, and her brother is still alive. Someone forgot to leave Samara at the bottom of the well. The title definitely evokes Wes Craven’s first flick The Last House on the Left, but hopefully it will have something up its sleeve, because this trailer doesn’t benefit so much from its story as it does the incredible luck of casting a young star who just shot into the stratosphere (and an interesting reverse-motion gimmick). Check it out for yourself:
