We caught wind of a new horror in pre-production from Entertainment One entitled The Babadook. Jennifer Kent will be directing the Australian horror pic that’s currently casting for a 2012 shoot in English. Check out a promo image inside out of AFM.
“Six years after the death of her husband, Amelia struggles to discipline here “out-of-control” six year-old Samuel –a son she finds difficult 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. And when Amelia begins to see glimpses of the creature herself, it slowly dawns on her that the thing Samuel has been warning her about may well be real.”
