    A modest genre entry, Dream House also benefits from the fact that any movie with good enough sense to cast Elias Koteas is automatically better as a result, even if he is utterly wasted here. show more

    Despite the A-list talent involved, this haunted house tale is a thrill-deprived, inert misfire. show more
