Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

Misdirection might be a good word to describe this psychological thriller whose twist will either delight or annoy audiences. Give it credit for the surprise.

Dream House offers poignant look at madness.

Three Movie Buffs

Clearly it's one of those movies being dumped in September, but thanks to the cast, I was never bored.

Director Jim Sheridan and his actors make you believe in it.

Slant Magazine

Without Jim Sheridan's empathetic touch, Dream House would have likely been a total waste.

This is a sunken wreck from the get-go, and everyone involved knows it and just tries to get away.

We Got This Covered

Dream House has been sold as a ghost movie but in reality, it is a psychological thriller mystery with a really bad ending.

Georgia Straight

The only real mystery is why some A-list actors and a director of Jim Sheridan's calibre would even ponder working on such an uncalled-for project in the first place.

So much is just so...obvious.

McClatchy-Tribune News Service

At least Weisz and Craig wound up married after this mess.

Jeff Beck

"Dream House" is a mess of a film. This is not only because its writing is amateurish, but also because the film itself seemed like it was someone's first attempt at putting a film together.

Movie Talk

Dream House is clearly something of a wreck, yet watching the film provides glimpses of the better film the project might have been.

R. L. Shaffer

Dream House is not the film it was advertised as, but beyond the wonky finale, reshoots, and strange editing there is an interesting tale to be told here.

What Culture

It's little surprise that Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz disowned this turgid, woefully inept thriller which idiotically gave away its big reveal in the trailer.

Linda Cook
KWQC-TV (Iowa)

This is the kind of thing that happens when there is a squabble about who controls a movie. Director Jim Sheridan bickered with studio over how scenes in this thriller should be shot, and scenes were redone after test audiences reacted negatively.

This is one property you'd do well to stay away from.

Radio Times

It's daft and nonsensical. But it's that silliness and the sheer calibre of cast that ensure this has a certain car-crash watchability about it.

Disappears up its own fundamental implausibility.

This is London

The fragile hope that we might have a grown-up horror movie on our hands is smashed to smithereens.

Peter Bradshaw

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.
