  • Critic Reviews for The Babadook All Critics (219) | Top Critics (41) | Fresh (215) | Rotten (4) | DVD (3) A deftly inventive and psychologically charged horror story that trades on the ways in which the prospect of maternal failure can be just as fearsome a boogeyman as any monster under the bed.

  • The Babadook is horror movie that obviously takes inspiration and pays homage to many works of horror from the last 100 years, but it's testament to Kent's work that it never feels derivative.

  • The Babadook movie reviews & Metacritic score: Six years after the violent death of her husband, Amelia (Essie Davis) is at a loss. She struggles to discipli...

  • In “The Babadook,” a sense of urgency establishes itself immediately in a nightmare scene in which Essie Davis’ Amelia is being rushed to the hospital…and this really is a nightmare scene.
