Dream House trailer

DreamHouse.jpgDream House is a trailer that surprises as much as the twists of a thriller do. I have to admit that when I started watching it I could see the standard checkpoints along the way and thought we were in for another Amityville type horror film. Wrong, so wrong. For in the middle of the trailer comes the surprise and it works as effectively as the surprise in the middle of a good thriller.

I have to say that Dream House is one of the best trailers I've seen in a good while, the music, the way it builds the story, and of course Daniel Craig, Naomi Watts, Rachel Weisz, Elias Koteas and directed by Jim Sheridan.

Dream House has a great line up of talent, and from the trailer you'd be thinking that this is the film to go and see, and I'd be right with you.

What I have to hope is that the reveal in the trailer isn't giving away a big reveal in the film and that in the film we're told this quite early on, or it isn't the surprise of the story. I am concerned that it could be though because now I'm thinking about the trailer I'm realising that this could be the entire story.

So, I would say you should watch it with the understanding of this could be a big reveal. Luckily the blurb doesn't contain that kind of surprise so you can happily read it without giving anything away.

Some say that all houses have memories. For one man, his home is the place he would kill to forget. Daniel Craig, Naomi Watts and Rachel Weisz star in Dream House, a suspense thriller about a family that unknowingly moves into a home where grisly murders were committed...only to find themselves the killer's next target. Successful publisher Will Atenton (Craig) quit a high power job in Manhattan to relocate his wife, Libby (Weisz), and two girls to a quaint New England town. But as they settle into their new life, they discover their perfect home was the murder scene of a mother and her children. And the entire city believes it was at the hands of the husband who survived. When Will investigates, he's not sure if he's starting to see ghosts or if the tragic story is just hitting too close to home. His only clues come from Ann Paterson (Watts), a mysterious neighbor who knew those who were shot. And as Will and Ann piece together the haunting puzzle, they must find out who murdered the family in Will's dream house before he returns to kill again.

Sounds good from there, now if you are strong enough to watch the trailer knowing this could be a big reveal, you can see it over at Apple Trailers or right here.

If you have watched it what do you think? Have we seen too much?
