Directed by Jim Sheridan (The Boxer, My Left Foot) and lensed by Caleb Deschanel, Dream House banks on subtle mood and nuanced tone to deliver a variation of the haunted house drama. The plot centers on Will (Daniel Craig), an aspiring writer who decides to pen a novel while cozied up with his family in a weathered Connecticut suburban mansion. Already, we're in the land of Amityville Horror and The Shining. The revelations of the mysterious happenings come in an uninspired, dramatic twist: Will is living in a crime scene and he is the murderer. This schizophrenic conceit fails to deliver the film's ultimate aim of employing psychosis as a plausible gateway for spiritual redemption, making this paranormal riddle as uneventful as a game of Clue.
