Critic Reviews for Dream Home

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (16) | Rotten (5)

  • The film is a surprisingly hilarious and deeply sickening midnight freak-out, and for a director known more for character-driven melodramas and comedies it's a delectably disgusting change of pace worth crowing about.

  • Pang's film may be heavy-fisted with the satire and foggily plotted, too, despite the lengthy flashbacks, but no one could doubt his commitment to the death rattle.

  • For all the film's bleak ironies, Lai-sheung's brutal asphyxiation of a pregnant woman, who aborts her child while dying, destroys any residual empathy.

  • A gleefully gory slasher-horror that satirises the property bubble and piles up the bodies in the process. Not for the faint of heart.

  • Don't let cheesy puns or rhyming couplets put you off what is otherwise an altogether more sophisticated approach to a macabre topic, fusing political commentary with grisly scenes of graphic, uninhibited violence.

    November 6, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A surprisingly high-end slasher exploit, but there's a big batch of interesting ideas tucked inside this flick.

Audience Reviews for Dream Home

  • Mar 10, 2013
    Extreme, graphically gruesome "true story" about a woman determined to buy a flat with a sea view in the outrageously expensive Hong Kong housing market. The movie's timeline jumps all over the place between 1991 and 2007 in an effort to help understand the woman behind the madness, but nothing can reconcile her relentless service of death. I couldn't understand why she was doing what she was doing until the final scenes, and that explanation actually makes a lot of sense - at least, it might to a crazy person! So her murder-with-a-purpose revelation influenced me to bump up a half-star to a recommendable rating. In truth, I am conflicted - the director knows how to make an audience squirm as the deaths in this movie are agonizingly slow and often feels exploitative. Proceed with caution, how you react to the opening scene should determine whether you continue as there are a dozen more of them to come.

    An unusual yet effective approach on the current housing market's escalating prices and mortgages and surprisingly how things could be a lot worse than our current economic situation. All of this wrapped around a bloodbath of a horror film containing the most creative kills in years, a great performance by Josie Ho, and black comedy to boot. One of 2011's best.

    It's sick, it's brutal it's what every slasher fan wants and more.

    Surprisingly fresh and interesting. A slasher with subtext from Hong Kong is not just for pure entertainment but with satire elements and compelling script. The cruelty of Hong Kong's real estate scene is being presented with insanity in this slasher, the storytelling is not linear, and there are many twists included.
