Gruesome gore undermines condo market
2 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

dreamHome is a very disturbing movie. The plot is quite simple:

A young cute, sexy female telemarketer in Hong Kong has a deep, disturbing, obsession to buy a condo with a water view in a hyper inflated housing market, and she is willing to do anything from car blow jobs to multiple, egregious and gruesome multiple murders to buy one. There is a kernel of truth to that as in Russia, some renters were actually killed for their apartments, and without a view.

The story is an old one: developers tear down old, shabby buildings and build new ones, and woe to the people that move in the new condos, when stalked by the dispossessed.

Although the director, Ho-Cheung Pang has created an exquisitely crafted movie, in terms of lighting, composition, scene development, story line, music track, editing and great actors, the movie disturbs our psyche unlike any other slasher/gore films.

I don't know of any of my friends that would watch this graphic/visceral movie. Oh, one friend might watch the movie, but he is a really disturbed individual and has multiple dildos and weird masks, and has a fetish for limbless chicks.

A review blurb from Salon on the DVD cover says the movie is "Hilarious". If you think that the Holocaust is a great popcorn and beer movie, and the Mason killings were a hoot, you might agree with the reviewer. If you want "hilarious" in a housing movie, check out Duplex with Ben Stiller.

If you giggled when Sharon Tate was stabbed in the belly while pregnant in the Manson movie, you will howl during the pregnant killing in dreamHome , when a pregnant woman is killed by Cheng Lai, aka The Condo Killer, as she sucks the life out of her with a vacuum bag as she wiggles for air like a worm while tied up on the hardwood floor. Oh, and her water breaks during the mayhem.

She does kill a couple during coitus, is that an homage to I Spit on Your Grave or a rip.

Another "gut buster" is the coke head who gets eviscerated and we see his entrails (including the large and small intestine spewing out) as though he is undergoing intestinal surgery, only he is not in an operating room but on a living room floor with loud rock music. And chuckles galore when one pot head has a broken glass bong shoved into his neck. Do hedonists deserve capital punishment by torture? Alex (Clockwork Orange) would be truly shocked and horrified and probably vomit by such goings on.

I'll deal with those inbreeds in Wrong Turn and Leatherface before dealing with Cheng Lai. Imagine serving her a cold pizza. You would be sliced and diced and served as a topping with the Pepperoni.

Cheng Lai is on a rampage of total destruction with her "water view" condo obsession. If only she learned how to downsize and lower her expectations and chillax a little with some Cabernet. The sound track could have been, (Can't Get No)Satisfaction, by the Rolling Stones. If only she would listen to You Can't Always Get What you Want.

You may wonder, why the graphic scene descriptions, because that really is the film, and one could do some pseudo economic poor/rich commentary, but that pales compared to the total visceral experience of this movie.

If you can stand gore and I mean really stomach gore, this is a very well crafted movie. Too bad I will never be able to watch it with someone, unless they are just released from a mental institution. If you liked Irreversible (which I did, as the only one in the audience) you will like dreamHome.

If you took out the gore in the movie, it would be an exceptional short with a great Rod Serling voice over and the classic Twilight Zone ironic twist. American movie makers should not try and top the gore in this movie...it would mean the end of our civility.

My drive-in rating: multiple breasts, pregnant girl, one penis, some ass, gizzards.
