Movie Review: Predictable ‘Dream House’ More Mystery than Horror Flick

Universal Pictures


Starring: Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz, Naomi Watts

Summary: Will (Craig) has just quit his job at a publishing firm to spend more time with his wife Libby (Weisz) and his two daughters. Shortly after, strange things begin to happen and Will discovers that there is a darkness surrounding his family and his home. Suddenly the storyline changes and now the neighbors are somehow involved in the mysteries of the house. There’s one final plot twist and the end which is somewhat predictable but still works somehow.

This movie was rumored to have production problems and that would explain why it feels so disjointed. The story starts down one road, then suddenly changes into something else, then changes into something different by the end. I can’t really say too much about it without giving it all away, but it’s not really a horror movie the way the trailer makes it seem. To be honest, it’s more of a mystery and a predictable one at that. In spite of all of that I wasn’t too disappointed with the movie, but maybe that’s just because I had very low expectations for it.

Trivia: Christian Bale and Brad Pitt were both considered for the role of Will.

Rated: PG-13 – For violence, terror, some sexuality, and brief strong language.

Grade: C

Here’s the trailer for Dream House.
