A single mother, plagued by the violent death of her husband, battles with her agitated son’s fear of a monster from a book named the The Babadook, that he believes is lurking in the house. She soon discovers a sinister presence all around her.
Horror as a genre has long facilitated some of the most deeply felt renderings of loss in cinema. With her acclaimed film The Babadook, director Jennifer Kent picked up this mantle with a chilling treatise on the many shapes grief can take, and the battle that is motherhood. A modern horror classic.
