Are you looking for a frightening movie to delve into this Halloween? Well, Dream House cannot make the promise of scaring you, but it is a pretty good psychological thriller. I feel like this movie has been marketed the wrong way. It has been shown to the public in advertisements and trailers in the form of a scary movie that would be great for this time of year. While this will draw bigger crowds to the theater it does not really help the movie itself. I was expecting to be frightened and enjoy it as a Halloween movie, but instead I was presented with a thriller type movie.
The plot is interesting and surprisingly easy to follow, I have found that usually thriller type movies tend to lead you astray from the main plot, so in that aspect it was very accomplished. I liked how the entire movie was pretty interesting the whole way through. The characters were very well cast, and the resolution was clean and clear. As far as I am concerned this is a great movie to see, not so much if you are mainly focused on seeing a movie for the sole purpose of being scared.
