I’m not sure if we like The Babadook (review) because it’s a kick-ass horror flick or we just like saying the words, The Babadook. Either way, here’s a new clip!
Look for the critically acclaimed spookshow Stateside on November 28th and in the UK on October 24. First, however, The Babadook will have its UK premiere at Film4 FrightFest on August 27rd at Vue West End in London’s Leicester Square.
Written and directed by Jennifer Kent, the film stars Essie Davis, Noah Wiseman, Daniel Henshall, Hayley McElhinney, Barbara West, and Ben Winspear.
Six years after the violent death of her husband, Amelia (Davis) is at a loss. She struggles to discipline her ‘out of control’ 6-year-old, Samuel (Wiseman), a son she finds impossible to love. Samuel’s dreams are plagued by a monster he believes is coming to kill them both. When a disturbing storybook called ‘The Babadook’ turns up at their house, Samuel is convinced that the Babadook is the creature he’s been dreaming about. His hallucinations spiral out of control; he becomes more unpredictable and violent. Amelia, genuinely frightened by her son’s behavior, is forced to medicate him. But when Amelia begins to see glimpses of a sinister presence all around her, it slowly dawns on her that the thing Samuel has been warning her about may be real.
