  • 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.

  • The Babadook is a truly terrifying movie. Essie Davis gives an amazing performance that should have earned her a best actress nomination and the characters are very believable and not stupid adding to the level of horror. the cinematography is excellent and it takes the possession movie a The Babadook is a truly terrifying movie. Essie Davis gives an amazing performance that should have earned ...

  • Mr. Babadook is a pop-up picture book that suddenly arrives into their lives. The creature is a sort of cross between a German expressionistic nightmare and Jack the Ripper.

  • “The Babadook” was both a snoozefest and ridiculous, and superior films included “Sinister” and “The Conjuring.” Now I’m not sure that “ridiculous” is a word that ought to be applied to horror movies, especially if you’re implying by comparison that stuff like “Sinister” and “The Conjuring” is NOT ridiculous.

  • 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,” the Australian director Jennifer Kent’s debut feature, is a horror movie full of interlocking ambiguities.

  • Parents need to know that The Babadook is a horror film about a creepy children's book with terrible threats that start coming true (the title is an anagram for "a bad book").

  • The Babadook is partly a psychological thriller in the style of Roman Polanski’s Repulsion or The Tenant, a Freudian study of Amelia and Samuel’s joint dysfunction and joint breakdown. In one sense, the book triggers their collapse, and is a symbol of Amelia’s depression.

  • The Babadook is a movie that taps into the basal emotion of fear. It portrays the truly terrifying things in life - grief, loneliness, and despair. Not things that freak you out but things that make you unsettled, disturbed, and human.
