DVD review: Stoker

DVD review: Stoker

Ratings: 2.5
Extras: 2.5

A movie with Matthew Goode (hot), Mia Wasikowska (quirky) and Nicole Kidman (out and out crazy) sounds like it should be fun times.

Stoker is anything but. Written by Prison Break's Wentworth Miller and directed by Oldboy's Park Chan Wook, it's a pretty dreary psychological thriller about surly teenager India (Wasikowska), who's trying to figure out why her dead dad's creepy brother Charlie (Goode) is trying to seduce both her and her mother (Kidman).

When she finds out the dark truth, there isn't a traditional redemption-style ending, but one which you would have spotted from a mile away.

A waste of great talent all round. Extras include a trailer and a behind-the-scenes featurette.
