Summary:

‘Stoker’ is an extremely unnerving psychological thriller that succeeds thanks to superb performances from Wasikowska, Kidman and Goode, the dark, smart and gripping narrative and the visionary direction. It’s not going to be everyone’s cup of tea but I can definitely see it becoming a cult classic.

Stoker Still

After India’s father dies in an auto accident, her Uncle Charlie, who she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her emotionally unstable mother. 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.

Now I wouldn’t necessarily say I was a fan of Korean Director Park Chan-Wook’s previous work, I mean there’s no doubt he’s made some interesting films in the past but I don’t think I could ever truly say that I love them and while that’s because he’s got this twisted point of view of human nature that can be quite shocking, it also meant that there’s a level of anticipation that I was going to see something a little different with this film.

Check out the video review below and let me know what you thought of the film in the comments section.
