Collider has an interview with “House at the End Of The Street” Director, Mark Tonderai where he talks about the film and as well as Jennifer! You can read the entire here.
During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, director Mark Tonderai (Hush) talked about how happy he is with the glimpses that were given to tease audiences with the trailer, how he came to direct this film, auditioning Jennifer Lawrence for quite possibly the last time in her career, why he wanted to go for a PG-13 rating, how much the film changed from the original script, and that he thinks the film will surprise a lot of people because it’s not what you’d expect. Check out what he had to say after the jump.
Obviously, this film will have a lot of new interest because of the success of The Hunger Games and Jennifer Lawrence’s heightened visibility now. What would you say to tease what this film is?
TONDERAI: This film is a real suspenseful thrill-ride. Once you go into it, from the first frame, you’re on the ride. You have this really awful sense that something bad is going to happen. I think this film works really well because it says, “Okay, here we go, we’re on the path, and you’re complicit in it, and here’s what’s going to happen.” And then, as we give you more and more facts, suddenly you’re like, “Oh, my god!,” and you’re really in this area where you haven’t been before. There’s nothing like it. I really mean that. There’s nothing actually like it out there. That’s why the trailer delighted me. When people give it that shot, and I’m really glad that they will now because of Jennifer Lawrence, they’ll really see what I mean and they’ll want to watch it again. When you go watch it, that will all make a lot of sense, and you’ll see. I think it’s going to surprise a lot of people. It isn’t what you think.
