A new international trailer and three clips have been released for the terrifyingly awesome horror thriller The Babadook. I saw this movie at Sundance earlier this year and it is a must see film for any horror enthusiast. Here's an excerpt from my full review:
"It's not easy to successfully invent a new classic horror monster, but this movie did it perfectly. The Babadook is an insanely creepy monster that has the power to haunt your dreams. I won't lie... I was a little scared to turn off the lights and go to sleep after I watched the movie. I saw it with my brothers, and they felt the exact same way, afraid to turn out their lights at night and making sure to close their closet door before they went to bed. It was an extremely effective horror film that played with your fears and maybe even gave you some new ones!"
Here's the official synopsis:
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 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. His hallucinations spiral out of control, he becomes more unpredictable and violent. Amelia, genuinely frightened by her son's behaviour, is forced to medicate him. 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 may be real.
Unfortunately there's still no U.S. release date for the film yet, which really sucks because the movie is pretty great. Hopefully it eventually gets one, because this is a movie you've got to see!
