Don't let the sweet title fool you: Dream House is a far cry from a movie about Barbie's pink mansion. From the moment the trailer begins, we're bombarded with tons of standard horror movie fare: innocent little kids laughing, creepy piano music playing in the background, and a general feeling that something is amiss in a family's beautiful new home. Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz play Will and Libby, who move their adorable daughters into a house that starts creeping them out before they've even unpacked their boxes. After a little digging around, Will learns that a family was killed there, and only the father survived. Things get even more intense when it turns out that Will is the same man who lost his family, and he's only recently been released from psychiatric care.
The trailer immediately had me thinking of movies like The Others, Shutter Island, and The Amityville Horror, but the twist here is that it seems that Will didn't actually commit any crimes. Though the preview made my skin crawl, it looks like as much of a mystery as a horror flick. Plus, this is the movie that brought now-married Craig and Weisz together, so I'm interested to see if their chemistry will be reflected in their performances. Watch the trailer when you read more.
