Dream Home (2010)

The only other Hong Kong-produced horror movie I've seen is Dumplings, and like that one this movie is centered around the social drama and a female character's obsession. Using the recent economic crises as a macrosociological argument, the film focuses on the individual's struggle for personal gain. Make no mistake though, it's a bloody violent experience with unforgiving camera work and gritty, claustrophobic colors and angles. The contrast of brutal scenes against a maudlin, sentimental, melodramatic exposition, interwoven chronologically, drives the movie headlong.
