SYNOPSIS:  A single mother, plagued by the violent death of her husband, battles with her son’s fear of a monster lurking in the house but soon discovers a sinister presence all around her.

MY RATING: (★★★★★) Talk about creepy this movie takes the prize.  A children’s book or rhyme that is a little unnerving and will have you looking at every shape and dark corner differently. My personal opinion… who would get a book like this for their children, but then again, we have to understand what the Babadook represents.  The monster represents grief itself, depression, and trauma, so naturally, Amelia (the mom) and Samual (the son) would feel immense grief and loss.

With all that said …Happy Viewing and enjoy the movie!
