The-Babadook

One of the most talked about films out of the Sundance Film Festival is the Australian children’s horror tale The Babadook, which will be released by Entertainment One international.

This morning we shared the trailer for the Boogeyman horror flick that’s scaring the living heck out of audiences, now we have the film’s festival poster that leaves the imprint of said Boogeyman.

Ryan Daley shared this positive review!

Directed by Jennifer Kent, and starring, Essie Davis, Noah Wiseman, Daniel Henshall, Hayley McElhinney, Barbara West and Ben Winspear, “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. His 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.

    Is that a penguin wearing a top hat? Because if it is, I am sold.

    I think this looks pretty good actually. OK, we may have seen it all before, but it’s rare when it looks as effective as this. The ghost looks very creepy and the trailer was very well done. Consider me interested!
