Once upon a time, there were two little girls who lived in a house.
Publisher Will Atenton (Daniel Craig) quits a lucrative job in New York to relocate his wife, Libby (Rachel Weisz), and their daughters to a quaint town in New England. As they settle into their home, however, the Atentons discover that a woman and her children were murdered there, and the surviving husband is the town's prime suspect. With help from a neighbor (Naomi Watts) who was close to the murdered family, Will pieces together a horrifying chain of events.
Unsurprisingly, during Dream House, you would have caught me yawning most of the way through it. In fact, watching me dream would have been less tiresome!
This is not an invitation to watch me sleep. You weirdo.
What could have been a solid psychological thriller is unfortunately crippled by a weak script, a punishing slow pace and an overdone haunting atmosphere that is never subtle enough to be scary. The puzzle-like narrative could have done with a few more unpredictable turns, but the rest of the narrative can ever match the initial twist. The talented cast, headlined by Daniel Craig, lift it from the rubble, but fail to truly revive it from what seems to be an over elaborate B-movie.
It showed promise, but came completely apart after the second act. A great cast, completely wasted. It's not director Jim Sheridan's fault. The producer changed the film completely, and Sheridan even tried to take them to court to make it a 'Smithee' film. He lost, but the cast stood by him and refused to promote the movie.
Director, Jim Sheridan, made his career with thoughtful fact-based character studies yet in recent years he has taken to dabbling in genre cinema. From the ill judged 50 Cent starring, Get Rich Or Die Tryin’ to this twisting and inept psychological thriller, it clearly shows Sheridan is best when he tackles more heartfelt projects. In fairness to Sheridan the problem lies less with him and more with the production company this time around. He was frozen out editing the film with Morgan Creek re-cutting it themselves and releasing a trailer that completely ruins the movie in the process.
As a psychological horror it utterly fails to convince with half-arsed scares and an inability to build mood. As a character study…
A psychological thriller where the twist is revealed half way through the movie. Making the rest of the movie feel arbitrary till the final 15 minutes where the film becomes laughably absurd. It doesn't help that Daniel Craig sounds more bored with every line he speaks. Laughably transparent.
For a long time I've mistaken this movie by chinese "Dream Home", one of the most visceral and gory horror movies I've seen, a favorite. The resemblance is only left for the title though, I always knew this american one was something closer to a haunting story than the sheer massacre from the chinese movie.
Now I think it'll be easier to spot the different, because Dream Home is a movie to remember with all its crazy over the top violence, while Dream House is a movie to forget, with all its cliché and plot twist. The unfolding of the story happened without any climax, and most of it is quite predictable, a shame since the movie relies on that.…
Desajeitado na realização e com pouca coesão na edição, Dream House é um filme com sérios problemas narrativos. Às custas disso, o esforço de Daniel Craig em fazer uma performance profunda, perde a sua credibilidade. Este drama sem equilíbrio, ainda conta com uma prestação disfuncional e repetitiva de Rachel Weisz e uma participação sem foco por parte de Naomi Watts. Sob minha visão, é um mau filme
O roteiro de David Loucka nunca decola, nÃ£o tem anzol nem isca, apesar da premissa interessante. tudo aqui e cozinhado no vapor, o resultado Ã (C) frio e anÃªmico.
Very straight forward and I like it actually
Good twist, but wasn't too scary
Dream House? More like Poop House! Ha ha ha oh god I am miserable why did I sit through this someone please help
I was on the fence, and still am really, on if i really liked this one or not. The twist was interesting but as a whole it was kind of confusing and didnt flow very well. Worth a watch but i wouldnt revisit.
This were advertised as a horror but it's not. It's a thriller. Pretty low on thrills but it's a good poster so y'know...
Swings and roundabouts.
Soon after moving into their seemingly idyllic new home, a family learns of a brutal crime committed against former residents of the dwelling.
All the talent assembled can't help save this disappointing and hopelessly construed psycho horror thriller romp.
willy tintin? lot of shite
I FUCKING LOVE COLOURING
I'd love to see more of these stories. REALLY entertaining stuff. If anyone has some, send away.
Also, anything mentioning…
