Corny Thriller Film Has A "Psycho-Like" Finale

The film House at the End of the Street is a little slow. It takes almost an hour of the film to build up the actual thrilling part. The story was good up until the ending which raises tons of questions left unanswered. Although a little confusing and off it is quite a thriller with a good twist in the story. There isn't as much violence that is expected in a thriller film, but it does provide. Nothing sexual and I don't think I heard more than a pair of curse words. But it wasn't totally amazing and was a solid meh all the run-through.
