    Stoker is Park's darkly funny, deliciously depraved riff on Hitchcock's "Shadow of a Doubt." show more

    The movie reveals itself as not merely dull, but pointless. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    Spontaneity has been banished by rigid stylization, and the net effect is as lifeless as a severed head that turns up in a basement freezer. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    A beautifully twisted, slow-burning psychothriller that may or may not all be taking place inside India's head. show more

    Joe Neumaier New York Daily News

    Stoker is like the baby David Lynch and Tim Burton had, then left on the doorstep of the Addams Family. Full of heavingly gorgeous images that envelop a viewer before smothering them, its maddening elements eventually become too much to bear. show more

    John DeFore The Hollywood Reporter

    Park's unsettling visuals and his handling of the cast make the occasional holes in Wentworth Miller's script practically irrelevant. show more

    For as long as Park and Wasikowska keep it burbling, it's an intoxicating brew. show more

    The chilling and stylish and aggressively creepy Stoker begins at the end and takes us on a shocking and lurid journey before we land right where we started, now seeing every small detail through a different lens. It's disturbingly good. show more

    Stoker is the sort of stylish, cerebral movie that engages your brain instead of your emotions, and yet you’re never less than intrigued by the breathtaking visual artistry of this slow-burn thriller. show more

    Sure, it’s got its horror aspects. But for my money, this movie belongs alongside “Secretary,” “Ginger Snaps” and “Thirteen” in the family of deliciously dark female coming-of-age stories. show more

    Could not get past the first ten minutes. Felt like I was on a really bad, drawn out acid trip with no escape from the impending boredom.

    4stars only because the performances were very believable BUT THE SCRIPT SUCKED! IT WAS HIGHLY PREDICTABLE & the parts not...were like fodder shots. The director did deliever the details but there is something wrong with the script. This story has been done before. --MO

    Such a lovely inspiring ode to psychopathic serial killing. Violence is new beautiful.
