In the movie Dream House, near the end its revealed that:

Its actually the man-next-door (Ann's husband and Chloe's father) who kills the Ward's wife and two daughters. We are shown that he is entering the house carrying two guns and shoots the daughters with them. We are also shown that he tries to kill Ann (his wife) to get the insurance on Chloe.

So why did he try to kill is neighbors? It would have been no use to him (he only would have had to kill his wife to get the insurance). What did he expect from killing the neighbors?

But I don't get why the children were killed. –  user790 Feb 9 '12 at 1:57
    
@sarah I think its because he was confused at the moment. He was thinking of killing the wife secretly and when she saw him, he became confused. And please post your question as a new question on the site. :) –  Roshnal Feb 9 '12 at 4:51

The husband of Ann actually hired someone to kill his own family for the insurance money. The assassin went to the wrong house and killed Peter Wards (Daniel Craig) family instead. He later tries to kill Ann by himself.

Where did you get the synopsis that you posted?

I posted the synopsis the way I understood it.. And I guess I was wrong :) (I didn't see it was an assassin who came to the house). Anyway thanks a lot for the answer! It really cleared things up a lot.. –  Roshnal Jan 25 '12 at 5:06

He wants to kill his wife, but his murderer (who should kill his wife) went to wrong house - he made mistake.

At the end, he wants to fix everything by killing his wife and neighbour (Ward) too, because everybody thought that Ward is crazy killer - and because he is crazy, he could kill whoever.
