am i dreaming?

I decided to watch Dream House after considering the movies available yesterday and today. At first Contagion was my priority as I thought that the line of actors and actresses was promising, but then it was it's last day showing at GSC Dataran Pahlawan yesterday. And I was lazy to move, don't know why I'm so tired these days when I'm doing nothing at home.

Dream House was chosen because of Rachel Weisz - the after effects of watching The Mummy when I was growing up :p

I thought the movie was going to be a scary one based on:
Soon after moving into their seemingly idyllic new home, a family learns of a brutal crime committed against former residents of the dwelling.
Sort of the killer opted to be a serial and hunt the family as his next victims. I couldn't stomach the thought that the two adorable sisters - Trish and Dee Dee, would be killed in the movie. Oh, and when I went in to find my seat, I saw that there were not many people..less than 10 I supposed, first show on the first day. Those I saw were Chinese, two girls in several rows in front of me and a few seats from me, an old Chinese guy. I was thinking, did I go into the wrong hall or what? Because there's a movie in Mandarin about a White Snake or something showing too - checked my ticket to make sure..LOL.

I'm not going to spoil the movie for you guys, don't worry. Just the storyline from Imdb:
Some say that all houses have memories. For one man, his home is the place he would kill to forget. A family unknowingly moves into a home where several grisly murders were committed...only to find themselves the killer's next target. Successful publisher Will Atenton (Craig) quit a job in New York City 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 the tragedy, his only lead comes from Ann Paterson (Watts), a neighbor who was close to the family that died. As Will and Ann piece together the disturbing puzzle, they discover that the story of the last man to leave Will's dream house will be just as horrifying to the one who came next.
I think the story could use some work, because there are fuzzy parts. Still, the movie is okay.
