The Babadook (2014, PG-13, 1h 35m)
A troubled widow (Essie Davis) discovers that her son is telling the truth about a monster that entered their home through the pages of a children's book.
Director/Writer: Jennifer Kent

What's most terrifying about The Babadook is that Kent grounds a bizarre supernatural premise in very real feelings of anxiety and depression.
-Noel Murray, Nashville Scene

A deftly inventive and psychologically charged horror story that trades on the ways in which the prospect of maternal failure can be just as fearsome a boogeyman as any monster under the bed.
-Alison Willmore, BuzzFeed News

Captures the twin pressures of loss and single parenting, kneading them into a hauntingly tense and anxiety-inducing horror.
-Rob Aldam, Backseat Mafia

Film courtesy of SWANK Motion Pictures.
