Stoker movie scene

Mia Wasikowska and Matthew Goode try to see things eye-to-eye in Stoker.

Mia Wasikowska (The Kids Are All Right), Matthew Goode (Leap Year), and Nicole Kidman (Rabbit Hole) star in this darkly atmospheric mystery-thriller film Stoker.

Following the tragic death of her father on her eighteenth birthday, India Stoker (Wasikowska) meets her charismatic uncle Charlie (Goode), whom she never knew existed. When Charlie moves in with India and her unstable mother (Kidman), both are drawn to his charming and calming demeanor. But it soon becomes clear that Charlie’s arrival was no coincidence, and that the shocking secrets of his past could affect India’s future…or shatter it completely.

The first English language film by acclaimed Korean filmmaker Park Chan-wook (Oldboy), Stoker, which also contains elements of family melodrama and horror (the title, of course, smacks of Dracula!), received a limited theatrical release in March, 2013. Though the critics liked what they saw, that didn’t rub off at the box office, as the R-rated movie earned a disappointing $1.7 million in the U.S.

The Blu-ray of Stoker contains the following features:

  • An Exclusive Look: A Filmmakers Journey
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Theatrical Behind the Scenes: Mysterious Characters, Designing the Look, Creating the Music
  • Red Carpet Premiere: Emily Wells’ performance of “Becomes the Color”
  • Free Song Download of “Becomes the Color” by Emily Wells
