If you like psychological thrillers (one of Joyce's favorite genres) with a twist, you'll like "Dream House."
Daniel Craig plays Wil Atenton, a New York businessman who moves his wife (Rachel Weisz) and two daughters to a Connecticut small town, only to discover that five years earlier a man had allegedly murdered his wife and two daughters there.
Strange things start happening – noises in the cellar, shadows of a man in the backyard, footprints in the snow outside the windows – the usual events in this type of movie.
Then suddenly, the movie takes a sharp turn away from its type and turns into one powerful psychological thriller.
Why won't the police investigate?
Why does the neighbor across the street (Naomi Watts) act so strangely?
What's with her husband?
Who is Peter Ward?
As Wil tries to put all of the pieces of the puzzle together, the audience starts to see the picture, but not without a few shocking twists and turns along the way.
This is one of those movies where you don't want to read too much about it for fear of spoiling the surprise.
Just go with it and you will be surprised.
Rated PG-13, with some violence and terror along the way.
