Hong Kong satirical horror Dream Home on Blu-ray in May

14 May 2015

As a child, Cheng Lai-Sheung could see Hong Kong’s famed Victoria Harbour from her apartment. However, as time passed, the old buildings in front of her home were demolished to make way for the huge residential project that now blocks her cherished view. Cheng vowed to save enough money for a new apartment with a magnificent sea view, and now works hard in two full-time jobs. Yet no matter how hard she toils, she cannot earn enough to match the ever-increasing value of Hong Kong’s real estate. With her father terminally ill and medical bills rising, she makes a fateful decision: she allows her father to die and cashes in his insurance.

Even this, however, is not enough. It seems Cheng’s dream home will remain forever out of reach. Then, suddenly, it dawns on her: to get what she wants, she must take matters into her own hands – even if that means getting them seriously bloody.

Combining visceral horror and darkly topical satire, Dream Home [Wai dor lei ah yut ho] stars Josie Ho (Naked Ambition) as the murderous Cheng, with Cantopop star Eason Chan (Lady Cop, Papa Crook), Michelle Ye (Vengeance) and Laurence Chou (Forest of Death).

Uncompromising, stylish and filled with unexpected twists, Dream Home will be released on UK Blu-ray on 25th May 2015 by Network Distributing at the RRP £14.99.

Special features will include:

  • Theatrical trailer

  • Josie Ho interview

  • Image gallery

  • Booklet by Billy Chainsaw
