Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
"Stoker" is a thriller in which the big question is not "What will happen next?" but rather "What is going on?"Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, 03.14.2013
A beautifully twisted, slow-burning psychothriller that may or may not all be taking place inside India's head, Stoker marks South Korean cult director Chan-wook Park's inaugural English language venture.Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer, 03.14.2013
None of it is life-changing, but it is effectively eerie. Stylishly spooky, even.Tom Long, Detroit News, 03.15.2013
If the destination isn't what it might have been, the journey is a heck of a ride.Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic, 03.14.2013
