"I'm curious about what happened to my father." Fox Searchlight has launched another mysterious bit of marketing for Park Chan-wook English language debut Stoker, which they've been holding onto for release until March next year. The site can be found at letterstoindia.com referring to letters/notes from India, the main character played by Mia Wasikowska in the movie. It's meant to shed some light on the bizarre relationships within the Stoker family. New footage will be added every week, but for now it just contains a scrollable story with vivid imagery. At the end it says "Coming Soon" reminding us there's more on the way. I'm very curious about this film because it is so odd. Oh, and that spider at the beginning is insanely creepy.

After India's (Mia Wasikowska) father dies in an auto accident, her Uncle Charlie (Matthew Goode), who she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her emotionally unstable mother Evelyn (Nicole Kidman). Soon after his arrival, she comes to suspect this mysterious, charming man has ulterior motives, but instead of feeling outrage or horror, this friendless girl becomes increasingly infatuated with him. Park Chan-wook (Oldboy, Vengeance Trilogy) directs Stoker from a screenplay by actor Wentworth Miller going as Ted Foulke. Fox Searchlight is releasing Stoker in theaters March 1st, 2013 this spring. See the trailer.
