When “Stoker” premiered at Sundance last month, reactions to the film were mixed, to say the least. Our own man on the ground was certainly not very fond of the Park Chan-wook film, calling it “a brutally empty, deeply unfortunate movie.” Of course, those who have been really looking forward to the film will get to see for themselves with its theatrical release being just one week away. Until then, a new clip and featurette has just been posted online to tide you over.
In the clip, a local Sheriff pays a visit to India Stoker (Mia Wasikowska) and her Uncle Charlie (Matthew Goode) in regards to a number of disappearances that have occurred in town. It does not take long, upon viewing the clip, to get a sense of the mood and tone of the film. The combination of the music along with Matthew Goode’s creepy and intense stare at the beginning certainly helps. Fox Searchlight has also posted a featurette that gives us a better understanding of what’s happening in the film and how all the characters fit into the story.
The film, which also stars Nicole Kidman, Dermot Mulroney, and Jacki Weaver, will hit theaters on March 1st. You can check out the clips below.
