Believe me when I say: it's OVERRATED²... too long and boring, the ending was kind dumb and nonsense as well... *I liked the acting of the mom in the "second part" of the movie (near the ending itself)

And the award for most annoying kid goes to???? Samuel from The Babadook! The only scary part of this movie was the amount of boredness that it brought me. Trust me.. It was overwhelming boring and it was so incredibly bad. Honestly i think it might doesn't even deserve a 4!

To say more would give away the plot, but clear hints as to the identity of More

[8.8/10] A good horror movie can come in several different guises. There are slasher flicks, horror comedies, ghost stories, and endless variations of the same macabre notions that each deserve to be judged on their own terms. But at base, no matter what else you think of a horror movie, of its goal More

'The Babadook' is a well done horror film, one that is most definitely creepy.

I would've liked more from the monster and how it works, though the film does give you enough and certainly does a fine job at building up the atmosphere of uneasiness that the thing produces. One great part I More
