  • Excerpt: The main flaw with the transfer for me, was there was some very occasional instances of edge enhancement, especially around some of the clothing. The overall colour scheme sticks to dark colours, and thankfully, the varying amount of blacks are deep with minimal crush. When the feature calls for use of some lighter colours, they are vibrant, and pop well without being too light.

DREAM HOUSE - Blu-ray review

  • Summary: The backstage drama during the production was far more compelling than the actual movie. This is an ineptly made thriller lacking in atmosphere or suspense.

Dream House Review

  • Excerpt: Dream House isn’t just inept, it’s downright handicapped. Produced with a story that hinges on a botched contract killing, it’s a wonder how no one, anywhere on the crew or cast, didn’t think this through. What hired gun goes into a contract without ever seeing a picture of the victim? What disgruntled husband gives vague directions like, “second house on the right?” Does the home in question not come equipped with a number?

High-Def Digest

  • Conclusion: Jim Sheridan's 'Dream House' shows potential as psychological drama with a great cast at the center, but previews, for some unknown reason, ensured there were no skeletons hiding in the closet, with audiences already knowing the plot's deep, dark secrets going in. The movie is also the victim of studio tampering, ruining an intriguing story into a formulaic mystery thriller that's pure nonsense.

Dream House (2011)

  • Conclusion: It's easy to see why director Jim Sheridan wanted his name removed from the version of Dream House that landed in theaters. It's easy to see why Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz distanced themselves from the final product as well. What isn't so easy to see is what Sheridan's film might have been. Dream House is a mess, from top to bottom, and I can't imagine how it could have been much better, especially with that ending. Ugh.

Cinema Blend

  • Excerpt: Dream House is as bad a movie without glaring faults as you will ever see. It just doesn’t work. The timing is off, the direction is off and the acting is off. Every single thing about it is slightly wrong. It’s ninety-two minutes of errors that progressively compound into an unwatchable mess. If it were a television pilot, it would have been sent back with a vague note that said something like, “Let’s try and rework this”, but movies don’t provide second chances.

Review: ‘Dream House’

Variety
30 September 2011
  • Summary: Nothing's quite as it seems in "Dream House," an initially teasing variation on the haunted-house movie that pivots in a radically different, uninspired direction.

  • Excerpt: As William S. Burroughs wrote, “It’s the little touches that make a future solid enough to be destroyed.” The problem with films that get the details wrong—like Perfect Stranger , Passengers , or the new non-thrilling thriller Dream House —is that when writers and directors don’t build a convincing world to begin with, it’s no great surprise or trauma when they start to take it apart.

  • Conclusion: Like most of its ilk, this starts off nicely but doesn't hold up to close rational scrutiny. Craig and Weisz are gorgeous together and the mystification is diverting. More entertaining and emotional than it is explicable.
