Set in Hong Kong, Cheng (Josie Ho), wants nothing more than to own her own home in Victoria Harbour and to have a sea view. She works 2 jobs but every time she gets close to being able to afford an apartment the market changes and the prices increase.
Her father is terminally ill and medical bills are stacking up so she makes a decision to let her father die and cash in on the life insurance policy. However, this is still not enough to get her dream home, she must find a way to bring the market price of the apartment she wants down to a level she can afford so she then embarks on a deadly killing spree to achieve her goal.
Overall, Dream Home is at times a strange film with flash backs to different times in her life and is sometimes hard to differentiate what is a flash back and what is current. That said I really enjoyed the film.
A really bloody film with some very creative ways of horrific murders including weapons such as cable ties, vacuum sealed plastic bags and golf clubs.
If you like bloody, creative murder scenes you will enjoy Dream Home.
