The Trailer For Chan-Wook Park’s Debut English Language Film ‘Stoker’

For fans of Korean cinema, there may be no director who has attained more worship than Chan-Wook Park. His seminal work, Oldboy, is currently in remake mode in Hollywood, much to the chagrin of that film’s many fans (although with this cast – and Spike Lee behind the camera – fear about that adaptation will turn out have withered from extreme worry to minor trepidation), and it remains arguably his most powerful and best work.

The past few years has seen him nurture the names behind some pretty great genre flicks – Juan Antonio Bayona (The Orphanage), Vincenzo Natali (Splice), and Troy Nixey (Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark), to name a few.
