Fox Searchlight has released the first clip from Oldboy director Park Chan-wook’s English-language debut, Stoker.  The film centers on a young girl (Mia Wasikowska) who encounters her mysterious uncle (Matthew Goode) while mourning the death of her father (Dermot Mulroney).  The majority of this clip is actually silent, as we’re treated to a quiet scene between Wasikowska and Goode’s characters.  An overall air of creepiness is prevalent, and it goes hand-in-hand with Chan-wook’s precision photography.  Matt caught the film at Sundance and enjoyed it, describing it as “an unnerving, slow-burn mystery-thriller that delves into a bloodline destined to shed blood” in his review.

Hit the jump to watch the clip.  The film also stars Nicole Kidman and Jacki WeaverStoker opens in limited release on March 1st before expanding in the following weeks.

Here’s the official synopsis for Stoker:

After India’s (Wasikowska’s) father dies in an auto accident, her Uncle Charlie (Goode), who she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her emotionally unstable mother Evelyn (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.
