Is the dream house a haunted house?

  • May 9, 2013
Rating:
+2
Will (Daniel Craig) retires to live in his dream house with his family, but scary things start happening; it turns out the last residents were murdered and now someone is after his wife and kids.

On the positive side, Craig does a good job playing something besides 007 and there are a few, mild, bump-in-the-night scares. Also, he married his co-star, Rachel Weisz. On the down side, the script is silly, convoluted, and makes the audience feel like dopes in the last scene.

The trailer gives the twist away, so don't watch it. The movie is just okay as thrillers go.

Now that I’ve seen it, what do I think? Was it as good as I had hoped for?      Will Atenton (Daniel Craig) …

Half a star out of ****    Such a sad thing it is, when a director and his stars can't even take pride in their own movie. Jim Sheridan and actors Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz, and Naomi Watts have openly expressed their disapproval of how "Dream House" turned out; and it's only now that I can take part in their pain, although being a simple onlooker, I probably can't quite relate to the feeling. But in a strange sort of way, I'm OK with that. The film is a prime example of what …
