About a week ago we received a package in the mail with no return address and no postmark. In this package was a white box wrapped in a yellow bow. Inside that box was a key on a chain. A necklace as it turns out. There was nothing else, no note and not even a clue that told me if this was related to a game or something else. I immediately thought it was for a game, but I ruled that out when I received our next mysterious package.
Another padded envelope with another white box showed up. This time the box was bigger but it was still wrapped in a yellow ribbon. Inside was a smaller box with seven pencils. I started to laugh, what is this? How does this help me solve the mystery! I removed the pencils and saw the picture below. It’s a girl with the same key we received earlier around her neck and what looks to be blood on her hands holding a pencil. After I looked over my shoulder to make sure there was no one to murder me, I knew this wasn’t promoting a game and that it had to be for a movie or TV show. I didn’t recognize the girl in the photo but you may have.
The girl is Mia Wasikowska, Alice from Alice in Wonderland. I found that out by doing a Google Image search of the picture and finding the movie poster. Bam, it’s for the movie, Stoker, which premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. The movie directed by Chan-wook Park, also stars Nicole Kidman and Matthew Goode. I had never heard of it but it looks pretty interesting, I have embedded the trailer below. It is on a limited release run in the US/UK markets if you are interested in checking it out. I know I will have to check it out if it’s playing near me just because they piqued my interest by sending me something to think about.
