Stoker

Do not disturb the family.


Stoker
It's difficult to summarise this without revealing key plot points which will spoil your enjoyment. In essence, after dad dies in a car accident, his brother moves with the slightly wacky widow and daughter. The daughter never even knew she had this uncle. However uncle has a rather dark secret, and while daughter is fascinated by him and finds herself drawn closer and closer, is it a case of spider and prey?

99 minutes.

Cape Times
John DeFore quote iconBlood, tension and corpses.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconPark has built a hothouse of erotic tension that's primed to explode. Some will find it too much. Take Stoker for what it is: a thriller of savage beauty.

Tomatometer quote iconIts script doesn't quite carry the dramatic heft of his earlier work, but Park Chan-wook's Stoker showcases his eye for sumptuous imagery and his affection for dark, atmospheric narratives populated by mysterious characters.
