Stoker (2013)

Stoker was on my must watch list after seeing the creepy horror trailer. The trailer compelled me to see the movie immediately to know what happens and who was in the grave at the end of the scary movie trailer. Stoker contains suspense, scary horror thriller scenes, jealousy, nudity, violence, some gory scenes, dark frightening horror scenes, murder and incest. I am not familiar with director Park Chan-wook (Day Trip, 60 Seconds of Solitude in Year Zero, Thirst) but I am excited to see more of his previous movies. I am pretty sure I have seen some of his movies but do not remember him or maybe I just overlooked who directed the movie.

Stoker is about an 18 year old girl named India Stoker (Mia Wasikowska - Madame Bovary, Only Lovers Left Alive, Crimson Peak) whose best friend and everything is her father. Her father Richard Stoker (Dermot Mulroney - Careful What You Wish For, Sacrifice, Space Warriors) suddenly lost his life one day in a mysterious car accident which made India’s whole world upturned. She soon meets uncle Charles Stoker (Matthew Goode - Pressure, The Imitation Game, Death Comes to Pemberley) who she never heard of at her father’s funeral. He abruptly moves into their home to live with her and her mother, Evelyn Stoker (Nicole Kidman - Paddington, Before I Go to Sleep, Grace of Monaco). This movie reminds me of netflix series Hemlock Grove.

India soon discovers that her mother and uncle are intimately together and soon after she becomes fascinated/infatuated with him although she believes he is up to no good. India and her uncle soon develop a relationship - you might ask what type of relationship—you will have to watch this scary movie to get your answer. She soon came upon the assumption that her uncle is a killer after she went to the basement for ice cream and found the maids body in the freezer. I will watch this movie again a few times maybe because it has so much to offer, an ongoing unraveling story about the mysterious charamstic uncle. For one, he was in a mental institution and he is not the only killer in this movie. I found out who’s grave India was shoveling dirt into.

Synopsis:

After India's father dies, her Uncle Charlie, who she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her unstable mother. She comes to suspect this mysterious, charming man has ulterior motives and becomes increasingly infatuated with him.
