Jeremy of We Got This Covered wrote, "Jim Sheridan‘s latest film, Dream House, is a messy thriller that stars overqualified actors. It’s a production that sounded great, but ended up falling apart before even reaching the big screen. Dream House tries its luck as a suspenseful thriller and fails, but then it tries its luck as a supernatural thriller and fails even harder. It’s a poor film directed by a more than capable filmmaker and starring three great performers. How did it go so wrong?"
