The Babadook
Jennifer Kent, 2014
Australia | Format: DCP | 94 minutes

One week run opens November 28!

Young widow Amelia lives with her seven-year-old son, Samuel, who seems to get odder by the day. His father’s death in an accident when driving Amelia to the hospital to give birth to him may have something to do with the boy’s unnerving behavior, which scares other children and perhaps even his own mother. But when a sinister children’s book called Mister Babadook mysteriously appears—and keeps reappearing—Amelia begins to wonder if there’s a presence in the house more disturbed than her son. Jennifer Kent’s visually stunning debut genuinely frightens us with the revelation that the things that go bump in the night may be buried deep inside our psyches, not just in the basement. An IFC Midnight release.

New Directors/New Films 2014
Sundance Film Festival 2014

"★★★★★ An expertly unsettling horror film." —Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York

"A wonderfully hand-crafted spin on a tale oft told... manages to deliver real, seat-grabbing jolts while also touching on more serious themes of loss, grief and other demons that can not be so easily vanquished." —Scott Foundas, Variety

"Well-calibrated for maximum scares." —Rodrigo Perez, The Playlist

"A gruesome treat... a different kind of nail-biter." —David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter

Series: New Releases

Venue: Walter Reade Theater, Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center
