The lush and thrilling English-language debut from Chan-Wook Park
After India’s father dies in an auto accident, her Uncle Charlie, who she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her emotionally unstable mother. 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.
Influenced by (and with many references to) Bram Stoker’s Dracula, this English-language debut from Chan-Wook Park (Old Boy) is a puzzling and thrilling mystery dressed up as a fairytale.
‘Gorgeously mounted… suffocatingly effective… sensuous and revelatory’
