Kernel rating (out of 5):
MPAA Rating: PG-13 Length: 101 minutes
Age Appropriate for: 13+. This is a typical horror movie, but there’s not too much bloody gore. Violence is still present, however: a child murders both her parents; girls are held against their will; someone is stabbed; and a character is burned. There’s also drinking and sexual content typical of teen films, including some making out and teen drunkenness.
Every up-and-coming actress goes through the horror movie salt mines, and Jennifer Lawrence is no exception. The Oscar-nominated young star of the mega-popular ‘The Hunger Games’ franchise stars in ‘House at the End of the Street,’ a subpar horror flick that drags despite her presence.

Jennifer Lawrence is not a bad actress, but “House at the End of the Street” is a bad movie. Even her glowing grin and undeniable charisma can’t elevate a story this repetitive, lifeless, and woman-hating.
