Movie Review: Dream House (2011)

Dream House (2011)

3.5 out of 5 stars

I can’t relate much of the plot to this movie without giving away too much.  I will limit my review to the performances of the actors, all of whom did well in this strange story.

Daniel Craig had me completely fooled right up until the point of revelation to the audience.  Usually, I see these types of things coming from a mile away.  I really should watch this movie a second time to catch all the clues I must have missed from before this point in the plot.  Rachel Weisz and Naomi Watts both also performed remarkably well, balancing out the dark and light halves of Daniel Craig’s character’s life.

I love watching a good thriller, but I vastly prefer those that are not gory (and come with a less than R rating).  I selected this DVD from Netflix because it had a PG13 rating and better than a three star rating from Netflix viewers.  This, I reassured myself that any scares and thrills I might experience would not overwhelm me with shock and gore.  Dream House did not disappoint.
