The Review: This effective Australian horror film is the story of Amelia whose husband died in a car crash on their way to the hospital, where she gave birth to Samuel, her son who’s now convinced they're being haunted by a storybook character, Mr Babadook.
On the surface, this could seem very silly indeed but it is not to be taken literally. You have to ask yourself what Mr Babadook actually represents. Is he a real monster? Or is he the manifestation of Amelia’s grief and despair? This is intelligent psychological horror that makes you realise the biggest fears come from within.
The Verdict: Ba-ba-brilliant.
