    Will Atenton (Daniel Craig) quit a high-profile job in Manhattan to relocate his wife, Libby (Oscar-winner Rachel Weisz), and their two daughters to a quaint New England town. But as they settle into their new life, they discover their perfect home was once the murder scene of a mother and her children.  When Will investigates, he’s not sure if he’s seeing ghosts or if the tragic events are somehow related to his past.  The only clues come from his mysterious neighbor, Ann (Oscar-nominee Naomi Watts), who helps him piece together this haunting puzzle.  Full of twists and suspense, this psychological thriller will have you on the edge of your seat.

    Very good movie and well acted and fun to watch.
    Dr. McBadass
    There is a strong sense of the supernatural here but it can't make up for the underwhelming plot and lackluster writing.
    Z Hayes
    The good news is that if you don't want to watch the movie you can watch the trailer and get the basic plot of the film.

    The Number one tip I can you watching this movie is not to have any expectations. It's not a horror or a thriller. It's a drama. Watch it. It is one of the best movies I have seen in awhile. MY whole family loved it. How's a man to survive when the lives of his family are at risk? This movie delves into how we can become slaves to our grief and loss. I would love to give more details but the less you know about the better. Give it a chance and make your own conclusion about this movie. You won't regret watching a beautiful movie as this one.

    I've seen "Dream House" a couple of times, and thought it was a very good movie, despite all the bad reviews I've read. I agree with only one review so far, from geeksofdoom.com: "a distorting and turning journey of mind-bending proportions, taking elements of...horror fiction and re-energizing them as 21st century psychological thriller...admirable performances [Craig and Weisz]...." "Yes, the plot is disorienting at times - but this is completely by design. While the audience is looking in a hundred distinct places to get a feel for where the movie is going, there are numerous elements hidden in plain sight that don't bubble to the surface until they're needed. The craftsmanship is the highlight and strongest facet of `Dream House', and make for a thrilling first viewing experience." I think there are many subtle hints that a great many viewers probably won't understand until they've seen the movie a second or third time. "...while it is not perfect, it sure is a hell of a lot of fun being along for the ride." The reviewer purposely did not see the trailers because of reports they gave away important plot elements. I did see the trailers, and I'm insulted that they gave away so much. No wonder the actors and director refused to participate in promoting the film. The studio, Morgan Creek films, must think we viewers are really stupid, that we won't pay to see a film unless we're told all the good stuff in the trailers. Also, it makes me wonder what plot elements they removed in their quest to satisfy the US rating people to bring it from R to PG.

    I hope you haven't read Amazon's editorial review either since they are both spolier-heavy. I unfortunately have seen the trailer. After watching it thought that the movie might be rather interesting but then realized while watching the movie with a friend who had also seen the trailer that the trailer gave away some very important facts about the movie which takes away much of the suspense. If you are one of the lucky few who hasn't seen the trailer and if you haven't read Amazon's review but are interested in the movie for whatever reason but want to know something about it before watching it then let me tell you that this would fall in the suspense/thriller genre...If you haven't seen the trailer and want to know a bit more about the movie without wanting to reveal a bit too much I'll just say that the trailer gives away who Peter Ward(a suspected murderer and potential danger to the protagonist, Daniel Craig, and to his family)is and how to find him. One thing that might put off some people is that they may find a basic fact about the movie hard to believe. While rating this movie I wasn't quite sure how to rate it. It does for sure deserve more than one star because of the cast and the acting and I still found some things about the movie interesting. I just wish I hadn't seen the trailer which kind of it killed the movie for me...

    The film follows the familiar path of a new family in a new house and "bad things happen". Unfortunately, if you've seen the trailer you'll likely know the major twist of the film which makes the first 45 minutes very slow. Fortunately, there's enough material to send the audience into creative overdrive, predicting all sorts of possibilities about the characters and how Daniel Craig ended up where he was. Unfortunately, most of the audience's ideas will be better than what actually transpires and the movie arrives at a soggy Act 3 that falls into total absurdity.


    Such as why did Naomi Watts not help out Craig when he spent five years in a mental hospital for something he didn't do? Or why did Watts' husband return to a crime scene where he'd effectively gotten away with the crime? It's one of those films that lacks the finesse of more tightly plotted twisty films like The Sixth Sense, and when you play it backwards it doesn't really hold up to any scrutiny.

    Overall, it's well acted and the setup has some promise. I don't know if this story was a victim of multiple re-writes but it shifts gears halfway through and everything that was good about the premise is wasted.

    Although the trailer led me to believe this was a horror film, it was more of a psycho-thriller/mystery. It was well done and thoroughly enjoyable. Daniel Craig did a very nice performance as the lead character in this movie--a good, solid job. Of course, this is NOT a movie for your children to see. The premise is about the murder of a wife and 2 young children, with the husband surviving. But, let's back up a wee bit.

    The movie opens with Will Atenten (ah-ten-ten Daniel Craig) in his editor office, signing off on his severance package. He has decided to spend more time at home with his family and write a book. It is snowing outside. He takes the metro train home and breaks the news to wife Libby (Rachel Weisz) and plays with his little girls Trish and Dee Dee. I got the impression that the family had moved into the house recently. Trish found flowers on the porch this morning that were not from Will (which probably should have been better tied in or deleted from the film.

    Soon after Will's retirement, an estranged husband and wife, Ann Patterson (Naomi Watts neighbors) begin to look at him funny, as does their daughter. Something seems so familiar about Ann. Ann's husband looks at Will like he hates him, while the custody battle over the teen-age Patterson girl goes on.

    When Dee Dee thinks she spots a man outside the window, and Will sees footprints in the snow the next morning, the plot begins to kick into a faster pace. Will gets up in the middle of the night to see teenagers in his basement, involved in some ritual to commemorate the 5-year anniversary of the murders in this house! Through talking to the teens and the police, and research, Will finds out that a woman and 2 young girls were shot and killed in his home 5 years ago!
