A New York book editor (Daniel Craig) moves with his wife (Rachel Weisz) and two small daughters to their “dream house” in Connecticut. But then they learn that a previous family was massacred there...
Dream House is a hard movie to review – or even describe – without revealing too many twists and turns of the plot. The film stars Daniel Craig (Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) as a writer who settles into a quaint home with his wife (Rachel Weisz)...
Not too long ago, some academic published a study in which the conclusion said that people do not, in fact, hate spoilers. Actually, the study went as far to say that people preferred to have stories spoiled for them.
Dream House tries to do something interesting. It takes an oft-used plot twist, which usually occurs at the end of a movie, and inserts it into the middle. Perhaps you can already guess what that twist is.
You know what else they didn't show to film critics this week? Courageous, the Christian movie funded by a Georgia church that has no famous actors in it at all. And that movie has an excuse; its target audience doesn't care what fancy film critics think.
What does a big deal movie star do to fill his time ‒ and already bulging wallet ‒ between stints in a hugely profitable franchise and the fall’s most anticipated thriller? That’s the enviable dilemma Daniel Craig faces as he preps “James Bond 23” and...
There are probably some fascinating behind-the-scenes stories that would explain why Dream House is such a ruined pile of nonsense. How does a movie directed by two-time Oscar nominee Jim Sheridan (My Left Foot) and starring Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz...
Creative Loafing Charlotte
Between its tell-all trailer and its tell-all poster, there's not much to tell about Dream House except that it's a crushing disappointment considering all the Herculean talent on display.
The Austin Chronicle
That said, Koteas has a memorably meaty part in Dream House, but it can't distract from the fact that this film is a confounding mess despite its impressive cast and director. I blame David Loucka's script, which starts off as what appears to be a haunted
Time Out New York
Ready to write that novel he’s always had on the back burner, a book editor (Craig) moves to the country with his wife (Weisz) and young daughters.
Killer Movie Reviews
There are fine moments in DREAM HOUSE, but not enough so that the easily parsed story and oddly soporific direction fail to become insurmountable hurdles.
Irish director Jim Sheridan (In the Name of the Father) has made some missteps before, from casting 50 Cent as a dramatic lead in Get Rich or Die Tryin' to the tone-deaf racial stereotyping of In America. But Dream House, a would-be thriller...
Still, it’s painful to watch a movie like Dream House — well-acted, beautifully shot and directed with extraordinary care and attention to craft — only to realize that the story, the alleged backbone, is absurd.
It's possible the only good experience to come out of Dream House, a psychological horror less fun than dental school, is the real life relationship between its stars Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig.
In Dream House – the new suspense thriller from Jim Sheridan (In America, My Left Foot) – Daniel Craig plays Will Atenton, a successful New York publisher who disavows his high-powered Manhattan lifestyle and relocates along with his wife,
Jackie K. Cooper
Daniel Craig is a box office draw – when he is playing James Bond. When he isn’t, the jury is out on his box office appeal. His big screen adventure “Cowboys & Aliens” with Harrison Ford made money but not as much as expected.
From its spoiler-ridden advertising campaign to its throwaway title sequence, Dream House appears to be your typical assembly-line horror flick unceremoniously dumped into theaters for a quick buck.
Reel Film Reviews
The degree to which Dream House ultimately fizzles out is, without question, rather disappointing, as the film boasts a fairly promising first half that culminates in a genuinely shocking twist at the midway point.
Susan Granger Entertainment Commentaries
Without doubt, the greatest disappointment of the week is this lame wannabe psychological thriller which unwisely revealed its things-are-not-what-they-seem twist in the Coming Attractions trailer.
Dream House is as bad a movie without glaring faults as you will ever see. It just doesn’t work. The timing is off, the direction is off and the acting is off. Every single thing about it is slightly wrong.
"Dream House" may be remembered as the movie that brought now-married Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz together. More than likely, though, it will be recalled as one of the strangest movies the current James Bond and the Oscar-winning actress.
Whenever a film starts with a family relocating to a quaintly dilapidated house in a sleepy neck of the woods, you know there is going to be trouble, whether it’s of the comedic, DIY fiasco variety, the suspicious-acting neighbour scenario or the things
There's a certain perverse pleasure in watching A-grade talent tackling B-grade material. Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and Naomi Watts are the stars here. And a daft haunted-house tale is what they battle, but eventually lose out to. Craig and Weisz play...
As good as Craig was in his pre-007 movies like Layer Cake, since being given a licence to kill he’s typically been struggling to make some first class original movies and to be good in them. Which is not always the same thing.
The Guardian UK
This is a workmanlike movie that is never quite scary enough, and never quite ingenious enough, though the four leads do an honest enough job. It's a film which is really an undemanding rental or a download for audiences who don't care that they've...
หนังทั้งเรื่องปกคลุมไปด้วยหิมะทำให้บรรยากาศวังเวง ชวนหลอนมากยิ่งขึ้น แต่ช่วงต้นเรื่องคุณอาจจะรู้สึกว่าเอ๊ะตกลงนี่หนังระทึกขวัญ หรือว่าถูกหลอกให้มาดูหนังดราม่าธรรมดา เพราะการเดินเรื่องให้เรารู้สึกเหมือนเป็นส่วนหนึ่งในครอบครัว ทำให้เมื่อพระเอก...

Filmmakers often like to play down reports of difficult test screenings and reshoots as nothing more than necessary tweaks to perfect their cinematic construction work. But in the case of Dream House, director Jim Sheridan (My Left Foot...
IT'S artistic aspirations are set well lower but, frankly, I was less bored in this week’s other Rachel Weisz picture, Dream House, a haunted house psychological horror in which she and screen and real-life husband Daniel Craig ...
London Evening Standard
The twist that follows takes a meta-fictional leap (Will is writing a novel, remember?) and though it's a familiar enough move, Craig and Weisz make the transition superbly, conveying desperation in radically different ways.
Time Out London
Disowned by director Jim Sheridan, then denied the oxygen of publicity by stars Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz, this bastardised psychological thriller bears the scars of its troubled history. The warmly observed opening scenes, in which downsizing book...
Any future offspring Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz may one day fondly remember Dream House as the film that brought their parents together.
It’s inevitable that one has high expectations for a thriller with such an A-list cast and director, but the overwhelmingly negative reviews thus far should probably be fair warning that this is not going to be anywhere near classic.
It is hard to render a thorough judgment of Jim Sheridan’s psychological thriller Dream House since the Universal Pictures marketing department decided that it would be a good idea to reveal the film’s twist, which arrives about halfway through the st
