Dream House is punishingly slow, stuffy, and way too obvious to be scary.

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.
A well-acted but ramshackle mess.
Was the screenplay, credited to David Loucka, this schizophrenic from the beginning? Or was some major tampering/reworking done at some point?
This suburban gothic is a logy, convoluted mess.
The film's ambitions are woefully small and familiar.
While Will and Libby struggle to adjust their thinking caps, the viewer already knows, thanks to the tell-all trailer, the reason for much of the confusion.
One can sense that this was a production riddled with problems, most apparent in the extremely poor dialogue and script.
Turned out so bad Sheridan wanted his name removed from the credits
Even good actors in sexy clothes can't make this movie compelling.
The final wheeze of the J-horror-inspired domestic thrillers that ran rampant a few years back.
This is a sunken wreck from the get-go, and everyone involved knows it and just tries to get away.
Dream House has been sold as a ghost movie but in reality, it is a psychological thriller mystery with a really bad ending.
This mess of a film has a few interesting elements but the stupid plot wants so badly to be convoluted that it forgets to be coherent or even plausible. And beware, the trailer gives away the entire movie, including the twists, which only proves that the people in charge of the marketing are complete imbeciles.
It's really surprising that this film hasn't been paid more attention. Not positive attention, mind you, but the kind of attention that truly bad films deserve. This film should have been eviscerated, picked apart, and trivialized until it couldn't languish in its obscurity any longer. Director Jim Sheridan (a six time Oscar nominee) tried to get his name taken off of this film after it was recut, and the trailer released, which gave away the entire twist of the film. That's right, if you watch the trailer, you will understand the entire film without having to watch it. Daniel Craig plays a father and husband, who lives in a house, which apparently was home to a family who was murdered five years prior. While the film looks like a ghost story, it's actually a psychological mystery, which it needn't be. This film is clumsy, thoughtless, confusing, and doesn't know what it wants to be. The ending is slapped on carelessly, in a way that makes you laugh incredulously, like "Really? That's how you're going to end this horrible tale?" The murders are handled horribly, trying to make the gruesome deaths somehow dreamlike, taking away all the familial tension. The specters somehow have agency, and shift from his mind to nearly tangible phantoms. If you're looking for a well handled haunted house film, this is not it.
This was an entertaining movie but to my dismay the main plot twist was given away by the trailer! I would've loved this movie if the twist and the thrill (things which make mystery movies good) weren't revealed beforehand!
How did they get this cast to appear in this nonsensical piece of ridiculousness? Rachel Weisz is too good an actress to be doing stuff like this. At least she and Daniel Craig fell in love while making it and married soon after so they have happy memories of it, those will not be shared by the audience however.
