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.

Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in House at the End of the Street...

Violence: A child with a knife is shown struggling with a mother and father, eventually murdering both of them. A child falls from a playground swing. A struggling girl is physically held captive and her neck is broken. A character is shot and killed. After discovering his car is being destroyed by a mob, a young man engages in a fight that results in a character suffering a broken bone. A character is stabbed. A group of young people throws an incendiary device into a home, starting it on fire. A girl deliberately burns her arm as part of an escape attempt. Domestic squabbles occur between a mother and daughter.

Sexual Content: In two different scenes young, unmarried couples are seen kissing passionately. During an argument a teen girl implies that her mother thinks she’s having “unprotected sex.” Teens in swimwear at a pool are seen.

Language: Infrequent use of mild and moderate profanities, as well as scatological terms.

Drugs/Alcohol: Teen drinking and drunkenness is depicted. Adults are shown using recreational drugs. A woman drinks wine and appears intoxicated afterward.

Other: Teen gambling is portrayed. Teens lie to parents about extracurricular activities and their whereabouts.

The script of this movie assumes teens are highly susceptible to the influence of peers. For example Elissa seems desperate to find a boyfriend and rescuing him from his problems. Do you feel this is an accurate representation?
