Where there is imagination, there is darkness and from within that darkness lurks a being of unfathomable terror …close to home.
Amelia (AFI Award winner Essie Davis, Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries) is a single mother plagued by the violent death of her husband. When a disturbing storybook called ‘The Babadook’ turns up at her house she is forced to battle with her son’s deep seated fear of a monster. Soon she discovers a sinister presence all around her…
This Aussie home grown horror took the world by storm, winning an astonishing fifty awards worldwide and gaining another fifty-seven nominations.
In her directorial debut, Jennifer Kent takes us on a visceral journey into the heart of fear itself, that is as scary as it is believable. Even the director of “The Exorcist”, William Friedkin, said: “I’ve never seen a more terrifying film.” But “The Babadook” is more than just a horror film – it is also a sensitive portrayal of grief and depression: two monsters even more powerful than that in the title.
