Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that House at the End of the Street is a thriller that many teens will want to see based on the fact that its star, Jennifer Lawrence, was in The Hunger Games. There's fighting, kidnapping, and killing, and dead bodies are shown, but very little blood and gore are on display. Language includes a few uses of words like "a--hole" and "bitch." Teen characters kiss and are clearly thinking about sex but are interrupted. Some characters drink too much, and "crack" (i.e. a lighter and some tin foil) is briefly shown in a flashback.

Sexual Content

The teen heroine kisses a college-age boy, and they move to a more comfortable location, presumably to take things a step further. They kiss some more but are interrupted before anything else happens. The heroine and her mother also wear tight white tank tops in many scenes. At a party, a teen boy tries to seduce a teen girl, saying he's "horny"; she tells him "no" and pushes him away.

Violence

Very little blood, though several characters die, and dead bodies are shown. Characters are shot and stabbed, and necks and legs are broken. Several teens gang up on one young man, punching and kicking. There's a scary prologue in which a young girl stabs her mother and father (no blood shown). Women are kidnapped and locked up.

Language

Language is fairly infrequent but does include a few uses of words like "s--t," "a--hole," "d--k," "bitch," "damn," "slut," and "piss," as well as "oh my God" and "Jesus Christ" (as an exclamation).

Social Behavior

A mother and daughter make an attempt to trust each other more and to try to communicate better, though this lesson is more or less buried in the scary story.

Consumerism

A Campbell's soup can is shown, and the soup is opened and prepared. A Lay's chip bag is quickly shown, and Coca-Cola and Sears signs are briefly seen.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

In a flashback, a mother smokes what appears to be crack, using a lighter and tin foil. One scene takes place at a teen party, and though drinking isn't shown, one girl is shown to be drunk, passed out on a bed, and then throwing up in a bathroom. The main character's mother drinks too much wine at dinner, resulting in awkwardness and fighting.
