Stylish and kinky thriller about a teen girl whose beloved father dies. Her Uncle Charlie (Shadow of a Doubt, anyone?) shows up at the funeral even though she didn't know her father had a brother. He proceeds to seduce her cold mother (Nicole Kidman) but it's clear from the start that his real target is his niece. And then people start disappearing. The first two thirds of this thriller is nearly perfect then a flashback scene comes showing where Charlie was a few days before the funeral. The scene is completely played wrong and makes his cool and unruffled exterior during the funeral and after seem more than a little implausible--in fact it makes pretty much everything you've seen up to that point seem highly improbable. With this scene Stoker loses its footing and never really recovers--the last 20 minutes or so are a silly and overwrought mess. It's too bad the filmmakers couldn't make the spell they cast for the first two thirds of the movie last all the way to the end.

When this movie began I was impressed with the suspenseful atmosphere and the artistic touches one expects from a well-made thriller. As the story unravelled however, I was appalled to a degree that is hard to describe. This is a disturbing movie about incest, purely sadistic killing, gore and blood and the fact that there is a wide audience who feels entertained by this twisted and vulgar movie is even more disturbing. I do not recommend it.
