The Babadook

(Jennifer Kent, 2014)

“The finest and most genuinely provocative horror movie to emerge in this still very-new century.”—RogerEbert.com

Jennifer Kent’s directorial debut is an all-too-rare contemporary example of a horror film that’s amazingly suspenseful without the shocks and gore. The Babadook follows a widow and young son who find themselves tormented by a creepy monster that has materialized from a children’s pop-up book. A box office dud on its initial release in Australia, The Babadook became a critical and audience favorite after screening at the Sundance Film Festival. (94 mins., DCP)
