DVD: Dream House (15)
Friday 13 April 2012
Couples in movies should never move to a quaint house in the countryside, near the woods.
From Arachnophobia to The Shining it never works out well. And so it proves for Daniel Craig's aspiring novelist, Will, and his lovely wife, Libby (Rachel Weisz), who relocate from Manhattan to a supposedly cosy town in New England in Jim Sheridan's slightly preposterous haunted house thriller. Obviously, their new home was the scene of a family slaughter, and their neighbour (Naomi Watts) is twitchy and the townsfolk are similarly spooked. The twist – and it's a big twist – comes halfway through, and, frankly, it's bonkers from there on in.
