Dream House Director Jim Sheridan Tried To Pull Alan Smithee With The Movie

We all knew going in that there were plenty of terror hotties in Dream House thanks to Naomi Watts and Rachel Weisz. But what we didn’t know, until only recently was that director Jim Sheridan tried to get his name off the picture, making Dream House one of those rarest of films, an Alan Smithee joint.

As it turns out, the only thing that stopped the bid was Morgan Creek agreeing to a series of reshoots which were, apparently, sufficient to keep Jim Sheridan’s name in the picture. Word is that Sheridan largely ignored writer David Loucka’s script from early on, favoring a kind of improv technique instead. This may be at least partially responsible for the poor showing Dream House ended up with so far.

These kinds of things happen, of course, but it’s good to know that, no matter how the movie turns out, we still have terror hotties.

Dream House Churns Out Clips Ahead Of Release

p>For those looking forward to Naomi Watts and Rachel Weisz in the terror hottie laden production of Dream House, well, you’ll be happy to know that it’s coming very, very soon–like this Friday very very soon–and just ahead of that release Universal’s dropped three new clips to get your excited about this one.

Dream House follows a family who’s leaving the big city for what will be their titular dream house in Connecticut. But that dream house won’t take long to turn into a nightmare as they discover that the house was site to a series of murders. And stranger yet, the only survivor of said series of murders is still in the area, and may well have been behind that series.

The clips look pretty sweet in their own right, and the trailers I’ve seen so far make this thing look absolutely freakish. Hopefully the whole will be as good–or even better–than the sum of its (previously released) parts, but we’ll find out this Friday either way.

Huge Slug of Stills Hits For Dream House

If you’re looking forward to the upcoming release of Dream House, you already know you don’t have long to wait until it hits theaters. But this terror hottie packed horror festival just dropped a nice healthy surprise: fully fifty still pictures, some featuring the terror hotties of this fine chunk of real estate horror.

Dream House, featuring Naomi Watts, Rachel Weisz and more besides, follows a family who moves from the city to a quiet town in New England. They think they’ve got that titular dream house out in the wilds of nowhere, until they discover that their dream house is a murder house. And the lone survivor–and lead suspect–is still alive. Will the family survive their move? Or will they manage to keep their new house in the face of a horror beyond their imagining?

Sure, this is shades of Cold Creek Manor, and a little bit of Amityville horror besides, and this one will be coming to theaters September 30th so we’ll get to see how it turns out directly. I’m personally looking forward to it, and hope it comes off as well as it might.

Dream House Just Keeps Getting More Terror Hotties

Can the news ever stop coming for Dream House?? Seriously, this place is going to have more terror hotties crammed into it than the house from Sorority Row!

You already know about Rachel Weisz and longtime favorite Naomi Watts, but we’ve got a THIRD terror hottie to add to the list–none other than Rachel Fox.

Yes, the Desperate Housewife will be moving into the Dream House right alongside Watts and Weisz.? And though we’re all still smarting over the misery that was Last House on the Left to do another home invasion flick, we all still remember how creepy The Strangers was and just how screwed up this whole thing can get when someone sufficiently motivated puts their mind to it.? Oh, do we EVER.

We’ll have a while to wait yet, but when this comes out, it should at least be sufficiently exciting to keep interest.

Rachel Weisz Joins The Dream House


(Rachel Weisz)

Well well, folks, here’s a fresh chunk of casting news for you–seems that Dream House, which was already doing pretty good as terror hotties went by bringing in Naomi Watts, has decided to pack another terror hottie in the walls, and it’s none other than Rachel Weisz.

And here, we join a successful publisher and his family who’ve just packed in the city life for life in the fair New England countryside.? And at first, things seem downright idyllic, until it’s discovered that the family’s dream home is actually a nightmare, as it was the scene of a multiple homicide.

Weisz joins as a neighbor who was on close terms with the original victims, and the whole thing just started shooting a couple weeks ago.? When it finally comes out, this should be just fantastic, and I know I’m looking forward to it.
