Stoker: First Look - Undead Monday

Posted by Grey Monday, October 1, 2012

This Undead Monday, we take a First Look at acclaimed South Korean film-maker Park Chan-wook's Hollywood entry, Stoker. 

South Korean director Park Chan-wook is undoubtedly one of the most sought-after film-makers in the world after his epic "The Vengeance Trilogy" and particularly for the second installment in the trilogy, 2003's Oldboy. One of the most memorable films to come out of South Korea, who has of recent years been indulging in the habit of taking over attentions from global film critics, festivals and awards, Oldboy was so good that we are actually perturbed by the fact a Hollywood remake is currently in production even though it is from the hands of notable film-maker Spike Lee with Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, and Sharlto Copley filling up the cast. With that sore piece of news out of the way, Park himself is actually coming up with a Hollywood production of his own. 

Set to be released on March 1, 2013, Stoker is described by the screenwriter, Wentworth Miller, as a "horror film, a family drama and a psychological thrillerwith Bram Stoker's Dracula being an influence. Before you ponder on, yes, we are talking about that very same Wentworth Miller. The American actor, model and screenwriter (now you know) most famously known for his turn as Michael Scofield, the protagonist of the Fox Network television series Prison Break and more recently, as Chris Redfield in Resident Evil: Afterlife. 

Is this film about vampires? Interestingly, we really can't figure that out from the trailer, which is a good thing. That we can't see through what the film has to offer despite already finding ourselves intrigued by the well-balanced blend of horror and drama that has a strange unique soul all its own. In addition, the cast of Mia Wasikowska, Nicole Kidman, and Matthew Goode also played  up the cold creepiness of the film well.

Now, without further ado, hit the jump to check out the chilling first trailer.

And the International Trailer.

The official poster.

Here’s the official synopsis for the film: 

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.

Starring Mia Wasikowska, Nicole Kidman, and Matthew Goode, Stoker is currently scheduled to be released on March 1, 2013
