Behind every great film is an unforgettable score, and while we have yet to find out just what Oldboy director Park Chan-wook has in store for us with his English-language debut, Stoker — here’s a taste of the film’s score by the always excellent Clint Mansell, titled In Full Bloom.
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.
The South Korean director, best known for his Vengeance trilogy, brings us a chilling look at the Stoker family which echoes Alfred Hitchcock’s Noir classic, Shadow of a Doubt — featuring an Uncle Charlie of its own. And while you may not get evil-soul-stealing-eyes from Nicole Kidman, I still highly recommend Hitchcock’s classic if you find yourself not being able to wait for Chan-wooks latest feature.
Starring Nicole Kidman, Mia Wasikowska and Matthew Goode, Stoker will debut at Sundance in just a couple of weeks, before its March 1, 2013 theatrical release.
Dim the lights and have a listen:

You know I love it. Mansell is such an excellent mood composer, capturing the “sound” of tension, darkness, exploration, etc.
Hell ya. I love all of his work and the fact that he’s teaming up with Chan-wook on Stoker is really exciting. Can’t wait to hear the rest of the soundtrack.
