The Babadook

1h 34m Drama, Horror, Monster, Psychological, Australia, Australian 2014

A single mother and her child fall into a deep well of paranoia when an eerie children's book titled "Mister Babadook" manifests in their home.

Amelia, who lost her husband in a car crash on the way to give birth to Samuel, their only child, struggles to cope with her fate as a single mum. Samuel’s constant fear of monsters and violent reaction to overcome the fear doesn’t help her cause either, which causes her friends to become distant. When things can not get any worse, mother and son read a strange book about the ‘Babadook’ monster that hides in the dark areas of their house. Even Amelia seems to feel the effect of Babadook and desperately tries in vain to destroy the book. A series of nightmarish experiences ensues for the pair of them.
