Amelia, a single mother haunted by the death of her husband, struggles to discipline her 'out of control' 6-year-old son who is plagued by dreams of sinister monsters. When a disturbing storybook called Mister Babadook mysteriously appears in their home, his hallucinations spiral out of control and as he becomes more unpredictable and violent. But when Amelia begins to see glimpses of a sinister presence all around her, it slowly dawns on her that the thing her son has been warning her about may be real. Praised by critics and filmmakers around the world, The Babadook is a beautifully spooky, richly metaphorical, and intensely terrifying achievement in cinematic terror. Without a doubt, an unforgettable film experience not to be missed!
Horror movie legend Barbara Steele (Black Sunday) narrates this dark and creepy stop-motion horror film about a twisted photographer whose passion for taking morbid photos transforms him into a disfigured child-like nightmare. Featuring horrifying hand-crafted stop-motion animation and a spooky score by Fangoria's Chris Alexander.
