“There are many horror stories and many comic fables to be found in the world of real estate, but perhaps none as hilarious, outrageously stylish and thoroughly disgusting as Dream Home. Leave all concerns about morality and good taste at the door for this saga of upwardly mobile Li-sheung, who vowed in childhood that one day she would live in a luxury flat with a harbor view, and will stop at nothing to fulfill her dream… Li-sheung’s deal for her dream apartment is falling apart at the last minute, and she needs to find a way to make the sellers reconsider... Hmm – how about inflicting a horrific killing spree on the neighbors, sending a variety of drugged-out losers, trashed hookers, blasé bourgeoisie, intrusive cops and innocent bystanders to their deaths in imaginative, splatterific fashion?... Dream Home goes beyond its rococo, nihilistic violence… into piercing social satire and considerable dramatic tension.” — Andrew O’Hehir,
