NEWS: DVD Release: Dream Home

Be prepared for a goretastic orgy of blood, guts and stomach-churning horror in the highly stylish, original and brutal property market satire, Dream Home.

Thirty-something Cheng Lai-Sheung (Hong Kong rock chick turned actress Josie Ho) is the daughter of a dying builder. She sells home loans by phone during the day and works as a sales assistant in ladies’ fashion stores in the evenings, in the hope of one day being able to buy her dream home in Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour. But when she finally has enough money for the deposit, the owners decide to raise the price, and something delicate finally snaps in Cheng.

Armed with only household DIY equipment and construction tools, and with ever more imaginative usage of them, she sets about ensuring that she acquires the property, come what may.

Told through an intricate series of flashbacks, Dream Home will appeal to gore lovers and art house move-goers alike, with many elaborate killings and a deliciously dark sense of humour running throughout the film. A chilling satire on the housing and economic crisis affecting Asians, the subject matter will also resonate with people trying to buy homes in the UK.

This release is packaged with a 2,000 word booklet by Bizarre film critic Billy Chainsaw about the film’s significance and contribution to the slasher genre and place in Asian cinema.
