The spoiler in this trailer for Jim Sheridan’s DREAM HOUSE is so big that I’m kind of thinking it’s a bait-and-switch. Universal is making us think we know everything after watching this only to hit us with an even bigger twist later. I’m hoping that’s the case, otherwise the film’s major reveal has been exposed.
As you can guess, don’t watch this trailer if you want to walk into DREAM HOUSE completely oblivious. The thriller, starring Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and Naomi Watts, tells the story of a family who moves into a lovely house only to discover it has some dark, dark secrets. As it turns out, it’s not only the house that has secrets.
Aside from the spoiler, the trailer is pretty great. It’s got an eerie, standard horror vibe to it and is full of A-list talent. Also, those little girls are creepy. If today’s PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 3 trailer taught us anything, it’s to never trust little girls.
DREAM HOUSE opens September 30th.
