And there you have it. 2 new movies and 7 new TV shows now available for your viewing pleasure. And while it’s not the most exciting group of titles, might we suggest checking out House at the End of the Street if you’re in the mood for some scares?
This underrated 2012 psychological thriller stars Jennifer Lawrence as a young girl who moves with her mother to a small town and learns that the house at the end of their street is where a gruesome double murder took place. Earning $44.1 million off a budget of just $6.9 million, it did fairly well for itself at the box office, even if critics didn’t exactly love it.
With a 14% score on Rotten Tomatoes, many praised the talented cast, but called out the “poorly conceived and clumsily executed” film for being a bit too bland and not nearly suspenseful enough. That being said, there are a few good scares throughout and a couple of twists at least keep the plot interesting.
In other words, it’s not a bad way to kill some time and if you’re looking for a fairly harmless thriller to sit down with and watch on Netflix this weekend, you could certainly do worse.
