A really well made costume drama that is almost perfect in every way. It has so much to offer.

Going along with the story involved. It's always interesting in a tv documentry kind of way. It's mad to see how far all this technology with cameras etc have comes along in the past 25 years. It all looks fantastic.

Great performances here that really make the film. The personal story here is really heartfelt and that comes through on the screen. A feature debut that's a great first feature. Can't wait too see the nex project

Unintentionally funny, this isn't bad this film it's terrible. The script is so bad that the actors have nothing to work with here at all

In Fruitvale station it shows us the everyday problems and pressures of life, a film that delivers a knockout blow. Thought provoking and very well acted.

Another run of the mill cartoon for te kids. There's no thought put into these movies anymore. Even the kids don't like them. My 5 year old thought this was terrible an that's saying something.

Heli is always compelling an provocative. By the end I this film all is bad an it's makes for a tough watch. But it's worth a look, just one of those movies you'd really have to be in the mood for though

It's just another run of the mill English hooligan movie. Nothing new here at all. I never liked any of these types of movies and I didn't like this either. Don't know how it got a release to be honest

A very enjoyable crazy movie that's totally stupid. Sequels are rarely good and I wasn't expecting much but when I movie like this comes along and you know it's not taking itself in anyway shape or form seriously you can't help but just go with the flow.

The Babadook

Reviewed by filmbuff2011

  • Currently 4/5 Stars.

Imaginative Australian film The Babadook is easily one of the year's most offbeat and surprising horror films. It takes a simple premise and stretches it to breaking point. Single mother Amelia (Essie Davis) is haunted by the death of her husband. It doesn't help that her 6-year-old son Samuel (Noah Wiseman) is aware of what death means and acts in an aggressive and difficult manner towards her and other people. This is aggravated by the appearance of an uncharacteristically violent children's book called Mister Babadook. A dark spirit with long, spiky hands inhabits these pages. It jumps off the page and proceeds to terrorise Amelia and Samuel. Mister Babadook can't be got rid of that easily... First-time director Jennifer Kent has crafted an ingenious film that plays with horror conventions about good and evil. At various points in the story, it feels like all three characters are frightening in their own particular way. This is also due in part to the committed performances, with a very physical one from Davis and an often unpredictable one from Wiseman, who seems wise beyond his years. The Babadook itself is a cleverly designed creation, shown more in the book than off the page. It would be too easy for writer/director Kent to flaunt her antagonist, so she keeps it in the shadows where it belongs. Set mostly within the confines of a suburban house, Kent ratchets up the tension with atmospheric music and gloomy production design to the point where you want to reach into the screen and say to the characters 'Just get out of the house. Now'. The Babadook is more than just a superior horror. It's unnerving and makes some unusual plot twists that most Hollywood horrors would shy away from. Forget rubbish horror films for Hallowe'en like Annabelle. The Babadook is the one to see.
