The Babadook

One night, after they've read a particularly dark and disturbing children's book, the otherworldly figure that haunts the pages comes to life and mother and son will have a fateful encounter with the supernatural.

A young mother, plagued by the violent death of her husband, tries to bring up her 6-year-old son and negotiate the immense void the loss of her loved one has left behind.

One night, after they've read a particularly dark and disturbing children's book, the otherworldly figure that haunts the pages comes to life and mother and son will have a fateful encounter with the supernatural.

In her much-lauded debut, Australian filmmaker Jennifer Kent draws inspiration from iconography and the traditional horror movie plots and atmosphere, only to incorporate them in something much more complicated and insightful: a story on the clash between reason and absurdity and the struggle of one woman with demons that are more likely nestled inside her rather than outside, in the real world.
