‘The Babadook’ Gets Special Edition Release!

Published

on

If it’s in a word, or it’s in a look, you can’t get rid of The Babadook.

This chillingly prophetic refrain haunts the worldwide sleeper hit The Babdook, the engrossingly eerie tale of a widowed mother and her troubled young son.

As previously announced, on April 14th, 2015, this critically acclaimed psychological thriller makes its Blu-ray and DVD debut from Scream Factory, in partnership with IFC Midnight.

Now, we have first details as the Special Edition Blu-ray, housed in a striking limited run pop-up package, comes loaded with bonus features, including theatrical trailers and an in-depth look behind-the-scenes of the making of The Babadook with cast and crew interviews (Creating The Book with illustrator Alex Juhasz, A Tour of the House Set, The Stunts: Jumping the stairs, Special Effects: The Stabbing Scene); as well as deleted scenes and director Jennifer Kent’s award-winning short film MONSTER.

The standard Blu-ray and DVD editions include the theatrical trailers and a look behind-the-scenes of the making of The Babadook with cast and crew interviews (Creating The Book with illustrator Alex Juhasz, A Tour of the House Set, The Stunts: Jumping the stairs, Special Effects: The Stabbing Scene). Fans can pre-order their copies by visiting ShoutFactory.com.

Where there is imagination, there is darkness and from within that darkness lurks a being of unfathomable terror…

Amelia (AFI Award winner Essie Davis – The Matrix Revolutions, Girl with a Pearl Earring) is a single mother plagued by the violent death of her husband. When a disturbing storybook called Mister Babadook turns up at her house, she is forced to battle with her son’s deep-seated fear of a monster. Soon she discovers a sinister presence all around her. A chilling tale of unseen and otherworldly horror in the haunting tradition of The Conjuring and The Orphanage, Jennifer Kent’s visceral journey into the heart of fear itself is as terrifying as it is believable.
