House at the End of the Street

Some people obviously don't watch horror movies -- otherwise Elissa and her mother (Jennifer Lawrence and Elisabeth Shue) would never have moved into the house next door to a murder scene, nor would the young woman have befriended the brother (Max Thieriot) of the killer.

How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

In one scene in this film Elissa’s mother, after drinking some wine, abruptly informs her daughter and Ryan that they are not to spend any time alone together in either of their homes. Is this a reasonable demand? Would they have been more likely to accept this “guidance” if it were presented in a more kindly manner? Considering the movie’s target audience, how do you think the filmmakers want you to feel about this parent?

The cell phone becomes a big part of this plot. Do you think cell phones improve or deteriorate relationships between parents and teens?
