Dream Home 維多利亞壹號 Preview: Trailers, Posters, & Stills

Posted by Grey Saturday, October 16, 2010

Sick and tired of the stereotypical slasher film rushed out to meet the relatively lucrative Halloween spirit? For a change, how about Dream Home, a Hong Kong slasher film that many has called the sleeper hit of this year's London FrightFest Film Festival?

A HK-made slasher horror?

Is the gore factor sufficient for the spoilt audience with their annual fix of Saw?

Well, for starters, in its world premiere at the Far East Film Festival on April 23, 2010 in Udine, Italy, one audience member fainted while two others vomited, providing the film with the kind of blessed publicity all horror filmmakers craves. The film also went on the win the Bronze audience award for "Best Asian Film" at the Fantasia Festival where it made its Canadian premiere, and won critical acclaim with its United Kingdom premiere on August 28, 2010 at the London FrightFest Film Festival.

Directed by the multi-talented Hong Kong novelist, playwright, and filmmaker, Edmond Pang Ho-Cheung (彭浩翔), the film asks a timely question in this age of industrialized globalization: In a overcrowded metropolis with cutthroat exorbitant real estates, how far would one go to own an estate with a harbor view? While this question might be relatively irrelevant to many from the western world, those residing in Asian metropolitan cities (Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore, just to name few) knew this nightmarish scenario all too well.

And the nightmare just got very real in this film. The official plot synopsis:

When she was a child, Cheng Lai-Sheung [Josie Ho] could see Hong Kong's famed Victoria harbour from her apartment. But as time passed, the old buildings in front of her home were demolished to make way for a huge residential project - 'No. 1 Victoria bay' that now blocks her view. Increasingly disappointed and upset, she vowed to one day save up enough money for her family to move into 'No. 1 Victoria Bay' with a magnificent sea view.

I order to achieve her dream, Cheng has to work hard at two full-time jobs. She even goes as far as stealing customer data to sell to other companies, However, no matter how much she toils, she cannot earn enough to keep up with the ever-increasing values of Hong Kong's real estate. Since property prices keep leaping higher, her dram now seems forever out of reach... until suddenly, it dawns on her; in order to get what she wants, she must take matters into her own hands... even if it means getting her hands seriously bloody.

Dream Home is currently scheduled to open on November 19th across the UK. Check out the trailers for the film, followed by the poster and some official stills from the film.
