DISC SPOTLIGHT: 'Stoker'

Stoker Blu-ray (R)

Movie: 3 stars out of 4 stars

Disc: 3 and 1/2 stars out of 4 stars

Equal parts Kubrick, Hitchcock and Tim Burton, this first English language feature from Korean director Chan-wook Park is a more than worthy addition to the creepy-crawly family dysfunction canon. Imagine "The Addams Family" boiled down to a trio minus the camp comedy replaced by macabre gamesmanship. There's Nicole Kidman as a the widow, Mia Wasikowska as the sullen, withdrawn teen daughter and Matthew Goode as the eccentric uncle that come together after a death and push each other's anger buttons. You'll either love or hate it; there's no middle ground.
