Family? It’s complicated … but also bloody, at least when it comes to Oldboy director Park Chan-wook’s thriller Stoker, which stars Nicole Kidman and Mia Wasikowska.
Case in point, check out this exclusive one-sheet poster for the film that features an unusual holiday-esque portrait warning “DO NOT DISTURB THE FAMILY” with a blood splattered twist.
Kidman (as mother Evelyn) shoots eye daggers big enough to kill, Wasikowska (as daughter India) holds a sharply pointed pencil in her bloody hands, and Matthew Goode (as handsome uncle Charlie, who appears out of the blue after India’s father dies, and becomes the object of both Evelyn and India’s obsessive affections) stands to the side with an intense stare. Written by Wentworth Miller and co-produced by Ridley Scott, the late Tony Scott, and Michael Costigan, Stoker is the first English language film helmed by South Korean director Park, a master at emotional murder mystery with a stylized edge.
Stoker is out in theaters March 1.
