The Babadook

The Babadook (2014)

Genre: Drama, Horror

This is an unusual but very entertaining film that is certainly for those who prefer a horror movie focused on story than gore ๐Ÿ™‚ . The movie starts off oddly but it is intriguing and it continues to remind us of the opening scene and allude to the car crash as the film continues. I liked and disliked the mother Amelia (Essie Davis) and child Samuel (Noah Wiseman) in this movie as we discovered more of their personalities. However, what I did like about both characters was that even in their most unlikable moments they were still understandable. However, my possible dislike did vanish as I got more gripped in the tale especially when Amelia starts to believe. The idea of isolation was great and the aunt was awful in this, plus the scene at the birthday party was good ๐Ÿ™‚ . I loved the entrance to the Babadook and the scenes of his appearances. His story was great, the idea of the book and the โ€œBabadook, dook, dookโ€ was awesome ๐Ÿ˜€ . There are plenty of creepy moments in this and surprises ๐Ÿ™‚ . I very much enjoyed how the atmosphere of dread and uneasiness never left. The twist near the end was great and I was unsure with the outcome making this film not predicable. I also very enjoyed how they โ€œdefeatedโ€ the Babadook and overall ending of the movie ๐Ÿ™‚ . It is a nice change to find a surprisingly pleasant and happier ending to a horror movie ๐Ÿ˜› . This is slow steady paced film with plenty of creepy scary moments that is great for those who love horrors that make you pay attention ๐Ÿ™‚ . I definitely recommend this movie though I did not find this scary ๐Ÿ˜› . Enjoy ๐Ÿ˜€

I give this film 4 Stars out of 5!
