Amelia loses her husband in a car crash on the way to the give birth to Samuel, their only child. She struggles to cope with her fate as a single mother and the impact on her each year of the anniversary of the tragedy. Seven years on, when things seemingly cannot get any worse, they read a strange book that talks about the 'Babadook' and the nightmarish experiences the two encounter form the rest of the story. Rated as one of the best horror films of recent years and with two stand-out performances, will you brave seeing the subtle, suspenseful, and shrouded in mystery film that is The Babadook?

open_quote It's a movie that uses dread and suspense, not cheap jump scares. It's also a movie that unsettles with deep psychological unpleasantness. And it's got a pretty killer title, as well. close_quote Badass Digest
