Mystery, suspense, a little romance, and an original plot sure to stun. (by jayzholygrail)
This is a sweet, psychotic trip about a dad who was framed and who lives a schizophrenic second reality every time he's in his house, where there was a tragic accident, for which he was framed. It'll break your heart and make you think. This films draws a perfect picture that is heartbreaking and shows the extent of love, justice, and a broken, but beautiful love story.I loved this movie so much. It was so sweet and exquisite, like gourmet food, in the beginning and then the story folds out as you normally think it would, being a thriller; but there's an unexpected twist that is <more>
so freaking brilliant and the every event that follows will make you roll out one tear at a time. It's definitely worth a watch and I've already made plans to re-watch. With a bit of romance, mystery, and definitely suspense, this is one of the best films I've seen in the past twenty years. The casting could not be any better and with a plot that is just as freaking amazing, you have this amazing underrated film.
Dream House was one of those movies that you can watch over and over again and always catch something new without ever forgetting what you just watched. I was entertained for about 90 minutes and loved the performance is the stories and the directing the whole movie was amazing and in my opinion wasn't under rated and unappreciated movie.when an amazing psychological thriller comes around you grab it and enjoy it because there are not many made in today's day in age that I would call amazing like Dream House. This movie will take you one way then turn around a few times leaving you <more>
02/22/2019 The storyline of this movie starts out like so many other new/young families played by Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and two beautiful young girls living a peacefully good life in their suburban home and the viewer, without even realizing it, gets drawn into the easy-to-watch storyline. Many things change quickly to their lives as well this movie. I found the script/storyline/writing exceedingly excellent/innovative/different from the norm. A great change to an old familiar storyline. The actors and actresses made this happen via a really well qualified, great director. In ending??? <more>
Well conceived, flawlessly portrayed, executed precisely, and we get the collective benefit from so much talent put into a film of fantasy. I loved this movie even with a sad storyline, it is a wonderful movie. Watch for yourselves and decide. Bon Appetit
Am I the only one that really liked this movie? Am I the only one that thought it was insanely clever, with a sick double-twist ending? Maybe not, but from the other reviews it seems like I'm one of the few! I agree with the other review - I watched this because I thought it was a horror movie, and it is much more of a psychological creepy awesome movie. But it's good, enough said.Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz are great, enough said.Written really well, and directed well. Once you think 'ah, nice, cliché, I see the ending' - nope! Give it a shot, it's a really great <more>
movie. I feel like with a few modifications it could've been even better, on par with The Sixth Sense, but it was still great. I'd watch it again.

me when I say this. If you have not read any reviews, but have heard how dire the film is, and the fact that the two leads have disowned the movie, watch it and revel in the fact that this is one good movie.I can understand that this has been compared to 'The Shining;, thanks to the advertising, and the trailer makes this look like any other horror movie insidious and the afore mentioned came into mind before seeing this , but it's something so very different, and the surprise is just how well made the film is.Craig and Weisz are very god in their respective roles, and although Watts just spends the majority of the film leeching over Craig, she plays a big part of the overall story.I was thinking that halfway through the film that this was mundane, and where was Sheridan going with it, and then something happens, and the fact that this film has been slated so much, it literally made me sit up and take notice in what I was seeing.and from there, it turns into a completely different movie, and it becomes evident it has more to do with 'The Jacket' than anything else.it's not worth spoiling, but there are two big twists in this film, that make it one of the most under-rated films of last year.See it, thinking it will be a piece of garbage, and you may enjoy it more.
I was pleasantly surprised with the plot of this movie (by papreppergal)
I was expecting a classic paranormal movie with ghosts, spirits, entities, etc., but was surprised with the actual story line. It's a good movie, creative like "The Sixth Sense" was creative & different. When you make it about half way through the movie is when it starts to mess with your head as you try to figure out where the story is heading, but it keeps you guessing. The ending could of been a bit different, perhaps a bit more definitive towards answering the questions you still have, but the way it does end works well enough.
Dream House 2011 (by SamWanjere)
An intense performance by Daniel Craig. He's one of my favorite actors but think he does well portraying Peter Ward.Alone and paranoid can be scary for a suburbia man without friends other than a sympathetic neighbor in Ann Patterson. Sometimes ignorance is bliss, in this case amnesia from his gunshot wound. I can't envy his state of having to reconcile the dreamworld in his mind with reality outside.I love the lack of a love scene between Ward and Patterson. It would have taken away from the overall story I feel. The director and his writers let us realize gradually that Ward is <more>
actually delusional.I would actually label this film both heartwarming and inspirational. It warms the heart to see that someone's care to those among us with mental disorders can actually do wonders for such persons. Ward returning to New York as an author, part of his mental fantasy world that comes to pass is what I deem inspirational.
Dream House, a horror story with twists and turns. A Dream to watch. (by razzell2)
I am not much of a reviewer, but I enjoyed this movie so much that I wanted to contribute a few words.So many horror movies are predictable. You pretty much know what's gonna happen, who's "ghosty", who done it, etc. But I was caught completely off guard by this one...several times!There are multiple twists in this movie, and just when you think you might have a notion, a new twist spins you away from that notion and heads you in another direction ultimately causing me to stop guessing along, to just watch the movie and enjoy it. spoiler alerts below, as I continue Daniel <more>
Craig is good, putting aside his "tough guy" persona and adding a new dimension to what we are used to seeing from him on screen. Rachel Weisz is also good, never giving away her role, befuddled and confused at the right times, in character , as a spectre might be. Beautiful, of course, is Weisz as Craig's wife. Naomi Watts, also very good, and equally beautiful, gives nothing away, enhancing the suspense and keeping me guessing as to her part in the movie.The only part of this movie that could have been considered a "love story" is between Craig and his family. I was pleasantly surprised that the love interest did not extend to Watts in the end.All in all, as horror stories go, something a little bit new here. A horror story with twists and turns is not new, but the use of these twists is new, and they are used well.I enjoyed it, gave it an 8. Well worth watching, even owning.ps...The movie and its characters have much more depth than this review. I did my best :
Trailer misleading...still enjoyed the movie! (by JTVelez)
I'm not going to say anything about this from what everyone else has stated. BUT instead of going by the trailer and with just an open mind, enjoy the chemistry between the actor and actresses, and she what this ghost story unfolds. If I went by most of the reviews and trailers, I'd probably stick with only the classics and give the rest of Hollywood's cinema rejects they put to film. If you enjoy Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and Naomi Watts performances in the past, you will enjoy their interactions with each other on the silver screen. The little girls were adorable, and the story <more>
tragic. Everyone can always be a critic, but it is what each person interpret what they see or understand is not always the same. I truly enjoyed this movie!
