Director Jim Sheridan's made some damn good movies in his time from 'My Left Foot' to 'In the Name of the Father,' but after making a career out of biopics and the like, who knew he had the horror bug in him all along. Featuring an all-star cast led by Daniel Craig, Naomi Watts, and Rachel Weisz, we now have the first trailer for Sheridan's latest effort 'Dream House' thanks to the fine folks over at /Film, and we gotta say, it's looking pretty creepy.
Set for a September 30 release date, here's the rundown of the story according to Universal Pictures:
Successful publisher Will Atenton (Craig) quit a high power job in Manhattan 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, he's not sure if he's starting to see ghosts or if the tragic story is just hitting too close to home. His only clues come from Ann Paterson (Watts), a mysterious neighbor who knew those who were shot. And as Will and Ann piece together the haunting puzzle, they must find out who murdered the family in Will's dream house before he returns to kill again.This is the first we've even heard about this movie, but hit the jump to see the trailer for yourselves.
Not exactly excited about the idea of yet another haunted house movie, but hopefully this bad boy breathes some new life into that dead horse of a sub-genre.
So what do you guys think of the 'Dream House' trailer?
