May contain Spoiler!!!!
Great acting, and an overall very good movie! Highly recommended if you are interested in the depiction of mental illness. I don't want to go into a detailed review, but this was one of those movies which was made with love and care for the details. It reminded me a little bit to Jacob's Ladder and Black Swan. This means you should expect a psychological horror film,... read more

I remember seeing the trailer for this and it looked interesting enough. However it didn't seem like something I would rush to see or hype about. Now I have been hearing a lot about it and so I decided to see for myself what this movie had to offer. It starts off pretty interestingly. I never thought about what my parents were dreaming about when I was a kid waking them up in the middle of the nig... read more

This is a great film that kept me on edge from start to finish. It had some frightening moments with some very touching moments between a son and his mother. Beautiful movie. I personally liked It Follows a million times better given its creative style and soundtrack.

"2016/02/26 @home on DVD from library Starts off with strong suspense and terror of the unknown. But, as the movie went on, it seemed that they came to a point where they weren't sure where they should go with the story. By the end, it was confusing and unclear what was happening, but not in a terrifying way, just in a confusing way. "

"15th of July, Netflix Tämä oli jo hyvin omaperäinen kauhuelokuva. Babadook ei ole sanan varsinaisessa merkityksessä pelottava, mutta se on paikoitellen hyvin ahdistava ja häiriintynyt. Elokuvan keskiössä on Essie Davisin näyttelemän yksinhuoltajaäidin vajoaminen hulluuden partaalle, jonka laukaisevina tekijöinä toimivat uhmaiässä olevan ongelmalapsen jatkuva kiukuttelu sekä trauma aviomiehen menetyksestä. Ohjaaja hyödyntää elokuvassaan aikuisuuden pahimpia pelkoja, joten ei l"

"The first time I watched this movie it was a terrifying experience, and I really liked this one because of that. But in this second run it was not nearly as frightening. Instead I tried to make sense of it all and discovered the hidden meaning of it, of how the monster is in reality her pain in losing her husband. Because of that this movie now has a whole new spin to me."
