Poor, yes, but oddly charming with it
14 April 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

At last...a '90s-era TV movie that doesn't suck? Well, not quite, but at least DREAM HOUSE is a mildly interesting movie - and better than the recent Daniel Craig movie of the same name. The simplistic storyline, which is set entirely within a rambling house, involves a family who install a super duper security system with AI at the heart. Before you can say 'HAL 9000', Helen (as the computer is known) is manipulating and controlling the family for her own ends.

Yes, the film is as ridiculous as the premise sounds, and it's also hugely dated - more so than films made years earlier. The 1990s era technology is a hoot, though, and the stilted acting and dated fashions are also entertaining. It's fun to see how the filmmakers manage to avoid putting any suspense or purpose into their film whatsoever. The computer character is a lot of fun, though, especially with those sarcastic comebacks, and the film seems to fly by even though nothing much happens. It could be worse (and frequently is)...
