Everyone I know who has seen THE BABADOOK cannot stop raving about it. We're used to getting caught up in the hype machine for independent spook shows all the time, but this Aussie nightmare appears to be the real deal. Check out this new trailer and you'll see what I mean.
...Six years after the death of her husband, Amelia struggles to discipline her “out-of-control” six-year-old Samuel – a son she finds difficult to love. Samuel’s dreams are plagued by a monster he believes is coming to kill them both. 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. And when Amelia begins to see glimpses of the creature herself, it slowly dawns on her that the thing Samuel has been warning her about may well be real.
THE BABADOOK was directed by Jennifer Kent and stars Essie Davis, Noah Wiseman, Daniel Henshall, Hayley McElhinney, Barbara West and Ben Winspear. It opens in the US on November 28th.
