Fortissimo Film’s bloody homage to Hong Kong will open the 12th Far East Film Festival in Udine, Italy next month.

The world premiere of Fortissimo Film’s slasher project Dream Home, directed by Pang Ho-cheung, will open the 12th edition of the Far East Film Festival in Udine, northern Italy on April 23.

Dream Home, produced by 852 Films, stars Josie Ho as a woman who will stop at nothing to obtain the home of her dreams. The project is described as a psychotic homage to Hong Kong and its vertiginous real estate prices – and the bloodiest slasher film to come out of the country.

Pang first attended the Far East Film Festival in 2002 with the film You Shoot, I Shoot and more recently in 2008 with Trivial Matters.

The Far East Film Festival will run until May 1.
