Coming to us from Australia and premiering at Sundance this year, The Babadook is an original story built on a familiar foundation.

The chilling little indie piece delves deep into the primal fears of a widow and her son who just lost his father. After the death of her husband, Amelia (Essie Davis) tries to calm her son who fears that a monster might be lurking in the house. Soon, however, she too feels a sinister presence pervading her life.
