Stoker is a freaky movie. It's weird, dark, brutal and uncomfortable, and at the same time it's this really unassuming coming-of-age tale about a girl whose journey to adulthood begins to clash with... well, some other more violent things. We wouldn't expect anything less from the English-language debut of Chan-wook Park (Oldboy), and after the movie made its official debut at this past Sundance Film Festival, it quickly became a festival favorite for those who dug its twisted humor and freakishly memorable shower scenes.
As Fox Searchlight gets ready to debut Stoker in limited theaters on March 1, it has created an intriguing website featuring these oddly beautiful GIFs from the film, all of which do a tremendous job of injecting you straight into the horrific absurdity on display throughout. Taking its freaky GIFs one step further, Searchlight has now released what may be the first (or at least one of the first) movie trailers completely comprised of GIFs, which may not work for most movies, but definitely works for this one.
The characters of Stoker are self-consumed and pretty unaware of the world around them, which really helps tie these strange GIFs to the film's overall themes. Featuring some steely performances from an aging Mia Wasikowska and Nicole Kidman, Stoker is visually breathtaking at times, and fans of Chan-wook Park will certainly not be disappointed.
