The Babadook

From Australia comes this gripping psychological horror thriller. Worn-out single mother Amelia (Essie Davis) is doing her best to raise her troubled young son Samuel (Noah Wiseman). One day the kid finds an unusual bedtime storybook about a monstrous intruder named the Babadook. Before long Samuel's imagination goes into overdrive, and he's convinced this literary boogeyman is coming for him. As dark coincidences begin to pile up around the house, mom starts to believe as well. The frights are powerful, but writer-director Jennifer Kent puts real-life emotions ahead of seat-grabbing scares. 93 minutes Unrated.
