First trailer for Stoker

Meet Stoker, an American film from the director of Oldboy. Thought that might get your attention…

There are a few reasons to be interested in Stoker. Firstly, while Hollywood goes about remaking one of his previous films, Oldboy, director Park Chan-wook has set about making an American film of his own. Secondly, said film has been written by Wentworth Miller, best known as the star of the TV show Prison Break. He originally pushed the script under a false name, and it ended up on the Black List of the ten best unproduced screenplays back in 2010. And thirdly, the cast isn’t bad, either. Nicole Kidman (in what looks like one of her creepiest roles to date), Mia Wasikowska and Dermot Mulroney are amongst the names attached.

The film, then, is called Stoker, and it’s due for release in cinemas next March. Which means it seems the time is right to reveal the first trailer for the film. Unsurprisingly, it’s got an R-rating. It does look rather good, too...

Blimey, a genuinely creepy horror movie trailer. I'd almost forgotten that those existed. This looks as though it could be great, even with Ol' Mrs Frozen-Face in it.

Love the Shadow of a Doubt 'Uncle Charlie' reference

This was the first time I ever heard of this film, and when I saw only the title "Stoker" my immediate reflex thought was it would be something about Brahm Stoker, maybe nudged into production by "Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter" and "The Raven"... However, judging by the clip, this looks far superior and much more worthy, a genuinely creepy story. Still... I think I'll work-up a screenplay based on the premise that Brahm Stoker actually got personally involved with Count Dracula and survived to write the novel... could work!

Go for it! Mr. Nosferatu always needs some fresh blood...

I heard this is a very very loose re-imagining of Dracula, but nothing to do with vampires, which I find... really intriguing!
