The Babadook Amelia who lost her husband in a car crash on the way to the give birth to Samuel, their only kid, struggles to cope with her fate as a single mom. Samuel’s constant fear of monsters and his violent reaction to overcome the fear doesn’t help her cause either which makes her friends distance themselves. When things can not get any worse, they read a strange book in their house that talks about the ‘Babadook’ monster that hides in the dark areas of their house. Even Amelia seems to feel the effect of Babadook and desperately tries to destroy the book, but in vain! The nightmarish experiences the two encounter form the rest of the story.

Review The Babadook :
Subtle and Creepy
I really enjoyed this film, its dark and unnerving without resorting to loud bangs or "found footage" style filming to get its scares.
Low budget and well shot, the film leans on the power of suggestion and tone to create a film which has a sense of unease throughout, tonally like the Exorcist, where there is this underlying feeling of dread and helplessness
The scares are not spoon fed, so this won't be for everyone, if your brand of horror is purely just modern films like Insidious or the recent Annabelle – then this might not be for you.
One of my favourite films of the year.
