Last night, my Scary Movie Buddy and I went to a late showing of Dream House. (The rest of our friends were too chicken to go with us. You know who you are and you know I love you anyway. ) Yes, I know it was a weekday and work was the next morning, but we HAD to see this movie. The trailers led us to believe that this was a scary movie. And yes, Scary Movie Buddy DID scream once, but it turned out to be more of a murder mystery than a horror movie. Which is ok by me, too. True, there were ghosts and they were haunting, but not in the traditional horror- movie -kind -of- way. The movie stars Dainel Craig (Bond, James Bond )and Rachel Weisz (The Mummy),a husband and wife who relocate from New York City to a quaint New England town with their 2 little girls. As they settle into their new house, they discover that a mother and her children were murdered in it 5 years before. When Daniel starts investigating the tragedy, his only lead comes from the next door neighbor, played by Naomi Watts. As he digs up the past, the mystery he exposes is heartbreakingly shocking. I won't go into any more details than this because I don't want to spoil the fun for anyone else who wants to go see this. And I highly recommend it! It had a plot twist that I didn't see coming...and those are the BEST kinds of movies for me!!! Scary Movie Buddy and I LOVED it. I give it a +10 on the Melscale!!
