Critics Consensus

Its script doesn't quite carry the dramatic heft of his earlier work, but Park Chan-wook's Stoker showcases his eye for sumptuous imagery and his affection for dark, atmospheric narratives populated by mysterious characters.

Audience Reviews for Stoker

Imagine growing up in the Addams family only nobody told you. Everybody just seems to deny it. But, come your 18th birthday, voila, the truth comes out. Eerie and spooky without ever saying why, I got a kick out of this walk on the weird side.

Wasikowska's creepy and hardly bearable character is only one the problems of this mis-structured thriller that also tries to extract tension from a mystery that we don't even know is there - and when it is finally revealed, everything that follows is made entirely predictable.

Dark, twisted story. Not sure I got it all, but fascinating and beautifully filmed and acted. One to rewatch, I think!
