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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

"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.

Abruptly shifts midway from half-hearted haunted-house chills to sub-Hitchcock mind games.

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.

This is one 'House' that should be pulled from the market as soon as possible. (Movie Review for Parents also available)

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

So much is just so...obvious.

The film eventually descends into such violin-fuelled melodrama that it becomes a convoluted alternative to Kenneth Branagh's Dead Again.

Was the screenplay, credited to David Loucka, this schizophrenic from the beginning? Or was some major tampering/reworking done at some point?
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
September 30, 2011
The premise and the execution hold a lot of promise, but the film's climactic reveal will be incredibly obvious to anyone paying even the slightest amount of attention.
November 27, 2011
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.

November 25, 2011
An intriguing twist livens things up midday way but the mood is almost oppressively melancholy and the plot doesn't stack up.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
November 24, 2011
An utter waste of time and talent.

August 26, 2015
The final wheeze of the J-horror-inspired domestic thrillers that ran rampant a few years back.
September 30, 2011
Despite starting off as an intelligent, realistic treatment of the traditional haunted-house thriller, the movie gets progressively more ludicrous as it goes along.
September 30, 2011
In the end, it feels like an honorable attempt that went wrong somewhere. There's nothing cynical or exploitative about Dream House but there's also nothing that makes it worth seeing.

Sheridan's tale soon segues into an unevenly paced whodunit pockmarked with lame CG nightmare sequences and populated by hollow ciphers whose every word and action is less believable than the last.
September 30, 2011
There are probably some fascinating behind-the-scenes stories that would explain why Dream House is such a ruined pile of nonsense.
