Some say that all houses
have memories. For one man, his home is the place he would kill
to forget. Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and Naomi Watts star in
Dream House, a suspense thriller about a family that unknowingly
moves into a home where several grisly murders were
committed…only to find themselves the killer’s next target.
Successful publisher Will Atenton (Craig) quit a job in New York
City 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
the tragedy, his only lead comes from Ann Paterson (Watts), a
neighbor who was close to the family that died. As Will and Ann
piece together the disturbing puzzle, they discover that the
story of the last man to leave Will’s dream house will be just
as horrifying to the one who came next.
