We're billboarding this bloodbath because it's stylish, jaw-droppingly funny and features a knockout performance by Ho, who brings to mind the young Deneuve of "Repulsion."

It is so grimly explicit that I couldn't watch at times but there's a nice twist in the tale.

20 minutes of creative over-the-top mayhem is not enough to overcome the everyday drama and overstuffed structure, particularly when the punchline to the whole scheme is low-rent Lex Luthor or high-rent Police Academy 6.

Dream Home is one of the most vicious, gory, and violent (occasionally to the point of hilarity) slasher flicks that I've seen in quite a while. A Hong… More
