The Babadook

Rated NR 92 min. 2014



Literally the stuff of dark fairytales, this haunting tale of suburban paranoia will stick with you long after the credits roll. The title character is a shadowy figure from a pop-up book with a top hat, cloak and kinfe-like hands who may or may not be terrorizing a young boy and his mother. Actually, he's terrorizing them, but is he real or did they create them from their own psychological torments? The true scares come from writer-director Jennifer Kent's depiction of the horrors that exist within the walls of daily domestic life.
