Dream House

Synopsis: 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.

Will.

Full severance package

and a book deal.

Total non-disclosure.

Uh-huh.

Total.

Okay, boys.

Get his stuff.

Danish? Eclair?

I'm gonna miss you, Will.

Mmm-hmm.

Little afternoon

pick-me-up, Mr. A?

I'm okay, Tommy.

Remodeling?

No, I quit.

Why would you do that?

He wants to spend more

time with his family.

Didn't know you had

a family. Spend all

your time here.

Well, I do.

Oh!

Oh, to the best

editor who ever escaped

the dreary halls of GPH.

To Will.

To Will.

We're gonna miss you,

Mr. Atenton.

Thank you. Thank you.

So, you finally made it

out the door?

Yes.

You have some brilliant

ideas in your head.

Let them out.

You think?

You don't want to

be chained to your desk

as an old editor, do you?

No.

Here. Best contractor

in Fairfield County.

Can't do it

all by yourself.

I shall miss you.

Good luck.

Thank you.

Hey.

Hey, Atenton!

Will. How you doing?

Heather. Heather Keeler.

I found your house.

Yes, sorry.

Yes. Yes.

Bramble Branch.

How are you doing?

I'm well.

Do you need a lift?

No, no,

I'm getting a taxi.

A cab in this weather?

Come on.

I'll give you a lift.

No, no, Heather.

Mine's the one on the left.

But you know that,

don't you?

Okay, here we are.

Enjoy your new home.

Thank you.

You have a good night.

Good night.

Sweetie,

I just wanted to know,

did you get the 7:15?

'Cause I really don't know

whether to put the kids

to bed or not.

So, give me a call

or let me know...

Oh, Jesus!

Oh, Will!

You gave me a fright.

Crazy.

You don't answer

the phone? What's going on?

What?

You did it.

You didn't?

You didn't?

You didn't think

I would, did you?

I didn't think you would.

You did it!

Oh, you did it!

I'm so proud of you!

Oh, we're gonna be

so much happier.

The kids are gonna

be so much happier.

Where are they?

Oh, the kids are asleep.

Okay.

Mmm-hmm.

Mrs. Atenton.

Mr. Atenton.

What's this?

Oh, this is

the kids' painting.

Um...

Have the children

gone to bed?

Yeah, the children

are very...

They're very tired.

I put them in bed.

And they've been

working all day?

Mmm-hmm.

Yeah?

Yeah.

I'll just put my coat

down here, like this,

and then my...

And this is a...

This is a new

cushion, I see.

Shall I give it a squeeze?

I think you should.

Mmm-hmm.

Oh, my God!

Oh, my God!

Daddy's home!

Daddy's home!

What have you been doing?

Um, painting!

Painting!

WILL:
Oh, really?

Sweetie, you wanna show

Daddy the surprise?

Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah!

Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Yeah, yeah, yeah?

That surprise.

Okay, ready, Dee Dee?

One, two, three, go!

Wow!

Do you like it?

Yeah, I do.

Really?

Yeah.

Honestly?

Yeah, you're hired.

You can't afford me.

I think

I might be able to.

What is that?

There's a very strange

smell around here.

You! You!

You! You! You!

I know what it is.

Mmm-hmm.

Stinky. Mmm-hmm.

It's stinky kids.

Stinky kids.

Stinky kids need bath time!

Stinky kids.

Are you gonna tell me

what this novel's about?

If I tell you

about it, then...

Well, then it

all disappears,

doesn't it?

But I can see the

characters, Libby.

I can.

Just... Just as

clearly as I can...

Thank you.

...as I can see you now.

Thanks for the flowers.

When? I didn't

give them to you.

I found them on the porch

this morning.

They're probably

from a secret admirer.

Of yours.

No.

Maybe.

Some gentleman caller

leaving you flowers

on the doorstep.

Missed you.

I feel so safe

when you're here.

Well, I'm not gonna

go anywhere.

What are you

thinking about?

Ah, memories, maybe.

Hmm.

Do you remember this?

Forever.

You remember this?
