Without a doubt, Park Chan-wook definitely knows how to tell a good story via stunning and shocking visuals and not just make it look like revenge porn (see Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, Oldboy, and Sympathy for Lady Vengeance). His signature style unpredictable tension and dark characters is about to reach a broader audience with Stoker, his first crack at an English-speaking film.
The movie stars Nicole Kidman as Evelyn and Mia Wasikowska as her daughter, India. Based on the trailer, their relationship isn’t exactly loving. (Actually, I think Evelyn hates her in a Mommie Dearest kind of way, but with a lot more icy disdain.) When Uncle Charlie (Matthew Goode) pays a visit after the death of her father, things start to travel down that fantastically messed up Chan-wook road that we all know and love.
This movie just looks f*cked up and creepy. I can’t wait!!!
