Dream House (2011)
Starring Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz, and Naomi Watts
Directed by Jim Sheridan
Although I could easily spoil things for you as the movie doesn't attempt to hide its secrets, I'll simply state that Dream House revolves around a family who moves into a new home only to discover that several years ago the former owners were killed in a horrible fashion. Seeing as this is an "attempt" at a horror film, it's no surprise that the events from the past begin to slowly wreak havoc on the events in the present as husband and wife Will and Libby (Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz) must do what they can to keep their family safe.
Ultimately, it's obvious that no one really had fun whilst filming and it shows onscreen. Everything about Dream House feels heavy-handed, uninspired, and insipidly dull. Despite an admirable attempt at creating a modern-day adult-centric horror movie, this venture doesn't work in the slightest.
The RyMickey Rating: D
