[4.00/10] Dream House (2011)

Dream House (2011)

QuickRating: Jim Sheridan's visual style is as appealing as always, but "Dream House" is a daft, pointless and completely scare-free suburban horror flick, that suffers badly from a muddled pacing, sterile direction and a deeply underwhelming twist midway through the bore. And not even the impressive A-list cast including Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and Naomi Watts can save this film from being the convoluted, dull, disappointing mess that it is.

What a waste of Rachel Weisz!

And Naomi Watts.

Really?! I was hoping for the best with this one. After watching the trailer I was pretty excited even though I felt it revealed a lot. However, I was hoping there was going to be that extra oomph involved-apparently that is not the case.

The trailer for Dream Home looks so lame, I doubt that I will ever watch this turd.

Nebular said...

Nicole, yes they made a super-stupid decision to reveal the twist in the trailer. Anyway, the film was an absolute nonsense and such a waste of talent. One of this year's worst.

Nebular said...

Harry, Never seen the trailer, but I can imagine. I thought that every single horror movie is on your to-see list? Apparently not.

augh, hate this movie.

Nebular said...

Kaijinu, and so did I.

Naomi Watts is always so dull to me with rare exception (Eastern Promises). Thought with Daniel and Rachel it might be good, but from your review, I guess not. Oh well, in the Skip It pile. :)

Nebular said...

Mel, I disagree with u about Naomi Watts. Yes, she's stone cold, but she gives great performances... if she likes the script. LOL.
Rachel is overrated for me. She's sweet and naturally beautiful, but in terms of acting, she's rather dull. Sorry. :)

Heard this was pretty bad. Would have loved to see Sheridan's real cut of it though. It was probably better than this version with all the studio tinkering.

Nebular said...

Ty, it was.
I agree, it would be great if we have the chance to see the director's cut. I bet it would be a lot better.
