Intense Trailer For Park Chan-wook’s Vampire Tale ‘Stoker’ Tears Life Apart

March 1, 2013 will mark a great day in horror history with Park Chan-wook’s (Oldboy, Thirst) english-language film debut about the nasty Stoker family. Written by Ted Foulk, this vampire tale looks and feels just like a Chan-wook film with a great set of tension and character development.

Starring Mia Wasikowska, Nicole Kidman, Matthew Goode, Jacki Weaver, Lucas Till, Alden Ehrenreich, Phyllis Somerville and Dermot Mulroney.

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.

You can tell that Chan-wook draws a lot of inspiration from Alfred Hitchcock’s classic film Shadow of a Doubt which features an Uncle Charlie of its own. Take out the vampire angle of Stoker and you have a film that echo’s Shadow of a Doubt in a fascinating way. So if you find yourself unable to wait for Chan-wook’s upcoming english-language debut then give Hitchcock’s classic a watch, you won’t be disappointed.

Stoker is the first of a planned trilogy from the Korean master of the genre. Watch the trailer below:

  1. This looks incredible, mostly because it’s from Park Chan-wook’s work, and Oldboy was absolutely fantastic. I also like Nicole Kidman, I know a lot of people don’t, but since Cold Mountain I’ve been a fan.
    And oh my gosh Jacki Weaver. Yes.
    Definitely seeing!

    1. You nailed it. Unfortunately I don’t think the general audience’s will quite realize how amazing it is that this will be Chan-wook’s english film debut so I’m worried that might end up hurting this film as far as ticket sales go. It looks absolutely amazing though and I for one can’t wait!
