NARRATIVE FEATURE | 96 MIN | 2010

DREAM HOME

Cheng Lai-sheung is a young, upwardly mobile professional working as a telemarketer in Hong Kong. She is finally ready to invest in her first home, a lavish penthouse apartment in the upscale city district that she has lusted after since leaving behind her impoverished childhood. But when the deal falls through at the last minute, Cheng does her gruesome part to drive down the property value and decrease the occupancy rate. She'll do anything to keep her dream alive… even if it means keeping her would-be neighbors dead.

Dream Home is a grisly fantasy, but also a smart cultural critique, the rare slasher film that brings as much innovation to its story and message as it does to the violence itself. Known for his creative stories and darkly humorous perspective, director Pang Ho-Cheung renders his disturbingly imaginative violence perversely plausible against an all-too-real backdrop of urban housing crisis and lifestyle fetishization. The result is a decidedly metropolitan spin on Guignol horror, and an incisive comment on a (literally) cutthroat real estate market.
