The full trailer for Park Chan-Wook's Stoker is a creepy slice of perfection

09.26.2012

Now this is what I am talking about! Where are all of the original movies anymore? STOKER looks like the antidote for all of the sequels and reboots that we are inundated with every year. For a while I was paranoid it would be a DRACULA remake, but this looks so much better.

Park Chan-wook (my wife is Korean so I will use the proper name order) has been one of my favorite directors since I saw OLDBOY. LADY VENGEANCE, SYMPATHY FOR MR. VENGEANCE, and THIRST are fantastic as well. For his first American film, Park has gathered Nicole Kidman, Mia Wasikowska, and Matthew Goode for an extremely creepy looking movie.

The sneak peek we saw last week was pretty great, but the full trailer takes it to another level entirely.

Plot: After India's (Wasikowska's) father dies in an auto accident, her Uncle Charlie (Goode), who she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her emotionally unstable mother (Kidman). Soon after his arrival, she comes to suspect this mysterious, charming man has ulterior motives, but instead of feeling outrage or horror, this friendless girl becomes increasingly infatuated with him.

It still shocks me that this movie was written by Wentworth Miller, star of FOX's PRISON BREAK. Wasikowska looks brilliant, Matthew Goode is seductively evil, and Nicole Kidman continues her renaissance as an actress, I watched this trailer three times in a row and I cannot shake the feeling that it is DARK SHADOWS meets LOLITA. I love the uniqueness of this movie and hope it finds the audience it deserves. This looks to be the first in a long career of original successes for Park Chan-wook.

STOKER opens in theaters in limited release on March 1st, 2013.

Extra Tidbit: If the DARK SHADOWS movie had been directed like STOKER, it would have been a much better movie.

Those "nothing original anymore in Hollywood, buhuuu" standard comments are getting so annoying, it's not even funny anymore (I won't waste my time and list all the original movies coming out this year). Guess what, comments like that aren't original. So please try something new.

Anyway, looks cool. Nothing too special, but still cool. And while it isn't it still could be a vampire movie. Hah

This looks like it will be just as dull as "Thirst," though I'm hoping it doesn't turn out that way.

Perfect

Not only is it exciting that this is Chan-wook's english-language film debut but it looks like it has all of the elements that make his other films so amazing. I also love that a lot of this film is so obviously inspired by Alfred Hitchcock's classic Shadow of a Doubt. Very cool, cant wait!

Atmospheric and haunting

This looks great. As a fan of Wentworth Miller during his Prison Break days, it's cool to see him emerge as a writer. Based on this trailer, it looks like he may be a strong one. Beyond that, this film looks terrific. The trailer gave me chills.

They are being watched instead of Dredd 3D and that pisses the people here off. Weird eh.
