“Why do you still live in the house your parents got killed in?” Jennifer Lawrence asks actor Max Thieriot in this music video clip from “House At The End Of The Street.” Oh you, know, it’s just your average sweet acoustic ballad/love song from a horror film where everyone gets murdered real good.
Frankly, this writer has no clue how tonally this “All You’ve Got To Do Is Fall In Love” song that Lawrence sings fits or has anything to do with “House At The End Of The Street,” but hey, it’s marketing. Lawrence can clearly sing, but this clip would be much more clever if it was her sweet cooing atop of bloodcurdling screams from the film. Oh well, I guess. Missed opportunity. Music supervisor Steve Lindsey called Lawrence “very down-to-earth, hard-working and had no pretention whatsoever – all skills that are paramount to recording music.” Ok, then. The whole concept is a bit wtf?, but we’ll try and let it slide.
Starring Elisabeth Shue, Jennifer Lawrence, Max Thieriot, Gil Bellows, “House At The End Of The Street” centers on a mother and daughter who move to a new town and find themselves living next door to a house where a young girl murdered her parents. When the daughter befriends the surviving son, she learns the story is far from over (cue: DUM DUM DUM horror music). Due September 21st, the film is directed by Mark Tonderai and was written by David Loucka. Now enjoy the sweet song before Lawrence gets (almost) killed in the film.
