The Babadook (2014) – Scary Film Alert!

If it’s in a word or it’s in a book…you can’t get rid of The Babadook


The Babadook a new scary movie from Australian director and writer Jennifer Kent. It was recently shown at the Sundance Film Festival and has received brilliant reviews from critics and audience alike.

A single mother, plagued by the violent death of her husband, battles with her son’s fear of a monster lurking in the house, but soon discovers a sinister presence all around her. (courtesy of IMDB)

Well I watched the trailer just last night and had trouble sleeping afterwards – no joke. Just the damn trailer was so freaky! It looks very scary and with such great feedback and reviews so far, I’m really excited to watch it. Some of the reviews on IMDB give a good insight to the tone of the film which sounds well written and very well acted  making it anything but average. Australia has given us some original and unforgiving horror movies in the past and I’m hoping this will live up to expectation. Bring on Mister Babadook. But, I mean…not literally though…okay?

UK release date – 24th October 2014
US release date – 28th November 2014

    I must say I am looking forward to this one, it sounds like it could be pretty good! 🙂

  3. Ginny! She could blow it to smithereens! Thanks Emma. I’m going to try a nap with Lacey.

  4. Okay. I’m totally embarrassed. I just realized you were asking theipc that question. I really don’t think everything’s about me. Thank you for the hugs though. And I’m glad you like Malfoy. Sometimes it helps if you name the monster.

      No do not be embarrassed!! Don’t be silly like Professor Trelawny 🙂

      MAYBE originally I was asking theipc, but I would have asked you exactly the same question as soon as I saw you 🙂 🙂

      That really did make me laugh, it was the way you wrote it as well, so deadpan! How are you feeling now??
