Six years after the violent death of her husband, Amelia (Essie Davis) is at a loss. She struggles to discipline her ‘out of control’ 6 year-old, Samuel (Noah 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. The BabadookHis hallucinations spiral out of control, he becomes more unpredictable and violent. Amelia, genuinely frightened by her son’s behaviour, 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. (C) IFC

"You will be scared. And also, perhaps even more scarily, moved." -A.O. Scott, NEW YORK TIMES

"Psycho, Alien, Diabolique, and now THE BABADOOK... "I've never seen a more terrifying film. It will scare the hell out of you as it did me." -film director William Friedkin (The Exorcist)

"THE BABADOOK is urgent, uncanny and entirely disturbing, a dream within a dream within a nightmare. It is the best English language supernatural film of this new century." -Colin Covert, MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE
