Film Series: The Babadook

2014. Australia. Dir: Jennifer Kent. With Essie Davis, Noah Wiseman. 94 min.

 

A harried young widow suffers when her rambunctious son claims to be haunted by a supernatural fiend he saw in a creepy pop-up book. As she’s run ragged by her own exhaustion, insomnia, and hallucinations, this presence starts to feel harrowingly real – is it simply the stress of raising a difficult child alone, or something far more horrific?
