Wai dor lei ah yut ho

Pang Ho-Cheung Hong Kong, 2010

Nick Schwab's rating of the film Dream Home

Most disturbing purebred slasher film of this decade due to the unflinching violence and glee that it presents its sadism, but is also one of the subgenre's dramatically richest films, and the most creative in its telling in years. Despite the queasy depths the bloodshed reaches, it steadily grows empathy for its brutal murderess through organic, non-linear storytelling, making her more-and-more dimensionally human.
