One of the biggest surprises in horror last year was Jennifer Kent's shockingly effective THE BABADOOK, a film our very own The Arrow called "definitely the scariest horror film I have seen this year" in his review HERE. Now Mister Babadook is making his way to Blu-ray and DVD across the pond as he comes tap, tap, tapping onto Blu-ray, DVD and digital platforms on February 16, 2015 in the UK, courtesy of Icon Film Distribution.

Six years after the violent death of her husband, Amelia (Essie Davis) is at a loss. She struggles to discipline her out of control 6 year-old, Samuel (Noah Wiseman), a son she finds impossible to love. Samuel’s dreams are plagued by a sinister 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 creature in the book is the monster he’s been dreaming about. His hallucinations spiral out of control and as he becomes more unpredictable and violent, Amelia is genuinely frightened by her son’s behaviour.

But when Amelia begins to see glimpses of a sinister presence all around her, it slowly dawns on her that the thing Samuel has been warning her about – The Babadook – may be real after all…
