When Daniel Craig met Rachel Weisz

I was certainly interested in seeing "Dream House," since I just got back from seeing this couple in "Betrayal." Let me tell you, from a strictly visual point of view, both of them are gorgeous, not to mention both wonderful actors on stage and on screen.

I gather from reading a few reviews that this film suffers from the director having the final cut taken from him, a bad trailer, and being incorrectly advertised.

I had never heard of it until I rented it. It's a thriller about a man named Will Attenton (Craig) who quits his job in order to spend time with his wife (Weisz) and two daughters. They have bought a place away from the city, but they didn't know that three of the previous four inhabitants of the house had been murdered by the husband and father. After some strange happenings, Will tries to find out what happened, which includes going to the institution where the father, Peter Ward, was sent after the murders. He was incapable of standing trial. What Will finds out is a huge shock.

I actually liked this film, and I would have liked to have seen the director's cut, since apparently the actors were all up in arms about Jim Sheridan not being permitted to do what he wanted with the final product.

I think for that reason, it's a tad confusing, nothing that a second viewing wouldn't solve. It's not as bad as it's been reviewed to be, and I think one poster was right - people were expecting a horror film and were disappointed. Well, I will never be disappointed about not seeing a horror film. And I'm a sucker for Daniel Craig.

not bad

So we were expecting a little bit more but it still does the job in being a fine film.The cast is good but the ending was a bit average for us, although i did like the concept of the story and how it ended up being but in the end for the star power it could have been way better yet also way worse.

Thriller movie with horror elements and a lot of twists , being decently directed by Jim Sheridan

Some say that all homes have memories and once upon a time , there were two little girls who lived in a house . For one man, his home is the place he would kill to forget . The plot is simple and ordinary : a family unknowingly moves into a home where several grisly murders were committed only to find themselves the killer's next target and then things get worse . As soon after moving into their seemingly idyllic new home , a family learns of a cruel crime committed against former residents of the dwelling . As the hard-working publisher Will (Daniel Craig) quit a job in New York City to relocate his wife , Libby (Rachel Weisz), and two girls (Taylor Geare and Claire Geare, who act on-screen sisters, are real-life sisters) to a a weird mansion . But as they settle into their new life , they discover their perfect home was the scene of the murder of a mother and her children . And the entire city believes it was at the brutal hands of the husband who survived . After that , Will discovers strange happenings and his only lead comes from Ann Paterson (Naomi Watts) , a neighbour mistreated by his husband (Marton Csokas) who was close to the family that died . As Will and Ann find out that the story of the last man to leave Will's dream house will be just as terrifying to the one who came next . Later on , Will uncovers dark secrets about the former residents that will affect his existence in his dream house . And awful events ensue when they are mercilessly pursued by a strange stalker .

Mystery thriller with terror elements , plenty of twists , turns and a suspenseful finale , dealing with a happy family who moves a quaint New England town , a seemingly idyllic new home , but they learn of a heinous crime committed against former inhabitants of the dwelling . The picture contains thriller , tension , suspense , unlimited excitement and plenty of plot twists . Hitchcock style psychological mystery , resulting to be surprisingly good and compellingly made , though has some flaws , being PG-13 rating for violence , terror , some sexuality, and brief strong language . The eerie as well entertaining premise about the strange home is overspread across the movie adding some brief conventional pitfalls . Exciting and ghostly writing credits written by David Loucka and Jim Sheridan himself . However , Production Company Morgan Creek took out the film of Sheridan's hands to re-cut it themselves ; after that , Sheridan re-filmed some scenes because they did not go down well with test audiences . That's why it had commercially a failure because Morgan Creek released it with advertisements that suggested it was a terror movie more than a thriller . Main cast is frankly decent . Daniel Craig gives an acceptable acting as the successful publisher Will Atenton who investigates a family tragedy to piece together the disturbing puzzle , then things go awry . Rachel Weisz is passable as Libby , the loving as well as suffering wife . During the filming of this movie , Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz met and began a love affair , in which their relationship was publicly announced several months later and they married in a discreet wedding ceremony . Support cast is pretty good , but really wasted , such as : Naomi Watts, Marton Csokas , Elias Koteas , Brian Murray , Gregory Smith and Jane Alexander .

Suspenseful and mysterious original Musical Score by John Debney . Colorful and adequate cinematography by Caleb Deschanel . The motion picture was professionally made by director Jim Sheridan who fought with Morgan Creek's head , continuously on the set over the style of the screenplay and the production of the movie . As a result , and due to the movie being heavily re-cut , Sheridan refused to promote the film to the mass media and requested in the Director's Guild of America to have his name removed from the credit titles . Filmmaker/producer/actor Jim Sheridan , who was born in Dublín , has directed good films , being a great quality director , such as : ¨In the name of the father¨ , ¨Get Rich or Die Trying'¨, ¨The boxer¨, ¨In America¨, ¨Brothers¨, ¨The field¨ and ¨My left foot¨ . And he produced "Some Mother's Son" , ¨On the edge¨, ¨Doll house¨, ¨Bloody Sunday¨, ¨Agnes Browne¨, among others.
