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.

FAV per YEAR (movies) (24 movies items)

"Babadook came out at a time I was really really bored by contemporary (at that time) horror movies. Luckily the wave has recently changed, anyways... 2010s and about was the time of many awful jump-scare-slasher-franchising, some of them are still around with their nine-tenth-twelfth chapter and stuff, you know. I just don't watch them, cause luckily there's also good scary stuff now. When I watched Babadook it was like drinking fresh water after time, finally it was a popular horror that dese"

10 Classic Australian Films (10 movies items)

" This romantic film about finding love with a foreign creature, post the death of a women's husband, is quintessentially Australian. Also, I'd just like to put it out into the universe that Essie Davis (Australia's version of Meryl Streep) acted with my Mother. They may have been 5, and playing worms, but I still think it was the experience Essie needed to have to become Australia's GOAT. "

"1.10. Tallenne Uusintakatselu. Miehensä matkalla synnytykseen auto-onnettomuudessa menettäneellä naisella on niin raskas poika, jonka hyvin ilmeiset nepsy-pulmat vakaasti kiistää, ettei varmasti tarvisi edes traumataustaa alkaakseen mamman mielenterveys ennemmin tai myöhemmin reistailla. Oivaltavaa, muttei mitenkään erityisen hienovaraista, pakotetun pärjäämisen - traumojen lakaisun - kuvaa, jossa äiti-ihminen kaiken muun päälle pärjäilee erityislapsen ja unettomuutensa kanssa."
