Trailer: Stoker, A Psycho Drama, Horror, Family Film

Stoker, directed by Park Chan-wook and written by Wentworth Miller, stars Nicole Kidman, Matthew Goode, and Mia Wasikowska. Even after reading up on the plot and watching the trailer (see below), it’s impossible to predict how this intense drama is going to unfold. It appears the audience will be in for a riveting performance by Wasikowska and a host of gripping scenes throughout. Stoker is set to be released in March of 2013.

A little background from the Stoker Wikipedia page: “Wentworth Miller wrote the screenplay for Stoker, as well as a prequel, Uncle Charlie. He used the pseudonym Ted Foulke, later explaining “I just wanted the scripts to sink or swim on their own. Miller’s script was voted to the 2010 “Black List” of the 10 best unproduced screenplays making the rounds in Hollywood. Miller described it as a “horror film, a family drama and a psychological thriller. Although influenced by Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Miller clarified that Stoker was not about vampires. It was never meant to be about vampires but it is a horror story. A stoker is one who stokes, which also ties in nicely with the narrative. Hitchcock’s Shadow of a Doubt also influenced the film. Miller said: The jumping off point is actually Hitchcock’s Shadow of a Doubt. So, that’s where we begin, and then we take it in a very, very different direction.”
