Review Summary
The Babadook manages to be unsettling in ways that most horror movies fail to by engaging us in a tale where the psychology of the characters plays as much of an aspect as the monster in the story. Sarah and I both consider "The Babadook" to be one of the best horror movies in years, in lieu of it's strong acting, directing, script, themes and bold choices. A must-see for anyone looking for a horror movie with some depth.
