Dream House

Successful publisher Will Atenton quit a job in New York City to relocate his wife, Libby, 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, 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

James Bond vs. the murder house?  I’ll admit that I’m excited.  It looks like it has a great atmosphere, though I hope it doesn’t go too heavy on the CGI.  And even though the twist (or at least one of them) is revealed in the trailer, I hope the film still has some surprises in store.  All of the main actors involved (Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and Naomi Watts) should have the chops to make the movie work, so really it’s down to the director and script.

Tucker & Dale vs Evil

TUCKER & DALE VS EVIL is a hilariously gory, good-spirited horror comedy, doing for killer rednecks what Shaun of the Dead did for zombies. Tucker and Dale are two best friends on vacation at their dilapidated mountain house, who are mistaken for murderous backwoods hillbillies by a group of obnoxious, preppy college kids. When one of the students gets separated from her friends, the boys try to lend a hand, but as the misunderstanding grows, so does the body count. TUCKER AND DALE VS EVIL has been a hit on the festival circuit, debuting at Sundance, and winning the Midnight Audience Award at SXSW, the Jury Prize for First Feature at Fantasia, the Best Director award at Fantaspoa, and the Best Motion Picture Award at Sitges.

I can’t wait to see this movie.  I love the idea of the “psychos” just being well-meaning but somewhat incompetent  hillbillys – thinking about it, I’m somewhat surprised no one thought of it before.  I can tell you right now, if it wasn’t so expensive on Zune, we would have watched this already.  Possibly twice.  If the movie is as hilarious as the trailer, it’s going to be amazing.

   Tucker & Dale vs Evil opens in limited theaters today. Theater listings can be found here.

  1. I would think of Tucker & Dale as expensive only if it was available outside of On Demand or theaters. If there’s 4 of us, that saves on tickets for sure. We’re entering a cool era where we can catch films while they’re still on the big screen without loud jerks ruining the fun. (Get off my lawn!) Some require the theater experience, but seeing House of the Devil at home, our first, was fantastic.

    PS: We have to watch it! Arg!
