Dream House (2011)


This a Covid-19 2020 minireview!

“Once upon a time, there were two little girls who lived in a house.” Will Atenton

Number of Times Seen – 1 (5 Aug 2020)

Brief Synopsis – After moving into a new house, a couple soon discover that a brutal murder happened there to the previous owners.

Bottom Line – Terrible film that fails to work on any level. They have a great cast, yet none of them are given anything to really do here.  The story teeters between being a psychological thriller and one based on otherworldly events yet fails to find a way to stay anchored along the way. 

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Director Jim Sheridan fought with Morgan Creek’s head, James G. Robinson, continuously on the set over the shape of the script and the production of the movie. After Sheridan re-shot some scenes because they did not go down well with test audiences, Morgan Creek took away the film from Sheridan’s hands to re-cut it themselves. As a result, they created the trailer, which many felt gave away too many of the movie’s secrets. As a result, Sheridan, Daniel Craig, and Rachel Weisz refused to promote the film to the press. (From IMDB)

Rating – Razzie Worthy (3/10)
