Storyline

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. Written by Universal Pictures

Goofs

When Jack talks to the hit man on the phone to prepare for the murder, the hit man tells him "I see Jack's wife outside right now." Since he is talking to Jack at that moment, he should have said "I see YOUR wife outside right now," and not refer to him in the third person. See more »

Quotes

Will Atenton: How did she die, Ann ? Tell me how she died.
Ann Patterson: Libby loved you. She'd want you to let her go. You have to let her go now, Peter.

Absolute drivel
1 October 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

One of the worst movies I have seen this year, with plot holes big enough to drive a truck through. Wooden acting from the supporting cast, and it never really knows what genre of film it wants to be. Daniel Craig obviously wanted a quick pay cheque, take the money and run 007, and don't look back. IMDb wants me to type out 10 lines of text but it hardly seems worth it if I have to reference this movie anymore so instead I will just type random sentences until I reach the minimum limit. So, how about this September weather? What a great fall. So nice to finally have decent,warm days. I sure hope the Oilers have a good year this year. Well, I guess I have reached my minimum line amount so I will be signing off. Daniel Craig I want my money back!
