The big surprise of this year’s Fright Fest was Dream Home, a slasher film from Hong Kong that not only has great fun with genre conventions, it knows when to shrug them off, ignore and them and set its sights on something more interesting. Writer-director Edmond Pang Ho-Cheung and star Josie Ho both impress hugely throughout.
I’m going to share the trailer, poster and a series of official stills with you, with just one proviso: you understand that they are underselling the film by a huge margin.
Dream Home opens on November 19th across the UK. Make it a priority, if you can.
At the moment, the film seems to be booked in for play dates at just a few cinemas. It’s worth pestering your local about, though.
