Acclaimed Korean film director Park Chan Wook's Hollywood debut has not let his fans down teaming with three celebrated actors Nichole Kidman, Mia Wasikowska and Jacki Weaver for his conventional suspense mystery genre. The film begins with India(Wasikowska)'s father dies in an auto accident and her uncle Charlie (Matthew Goode) who she never knew existed and came to live with her and her emotionally unstable mother (Kidman). Soon after his arrival, the mysterious and suspected charming uncle has an ulterior motives and made the film more nasty yet sleek with intelligence. Park's macabre neo-gothic style elegantly expressed its malevolence with a tale of deep family rot and of past sins that cannot be redeemed, only repeated or repaid. A good horror thriller does not need much CG intrusion, hence, with some great actors to carry out the portrayed characters in full emotion made the film even more convince and showing the audience their action talent in full bloom. This film is a truly bright entry for Park to shoe the Hollywood film makers with a new dimension of how a suspense horror thriller films could be made.
