Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Kent has taste, an eye and a knack for brisk, accelerated pacing. In the case of "The Babadook," familiarity breeds an eerily gratifying contentment.
Fresh: At its heart, "The Babadook" is a story of mother and son, whose relationship ultimately determines whether they survive the demon - or die trying.
Fresh: Jennifer Kent's startling debut is an artful horror-chiller that gets under your skin and into your psyche.
Fresh: With its mixture of frights both literal and literary, "The Babadook" will, I suspect, satisfy horror's devotees as much as the genre's doubters.
One hell of wonderful story
Everything about this film. Is missing in cinema today. A profoundly great way to express what's hard to express yet also be able to convey ways in dealing with elements of life that are unmanageable. Give it a view.
It was scary, but I would recommend to non-horror fans. It’s deep message can teach us all about our own darkness and how we ultimately always have power over it. This movie left me with a feeling of hope.
2.5 seconds of scary, the rest was blah
The movie started out like we were in for a good show but never lived up to it. Don't waste your money.
