A new kind of Boogeyman is on his way. The book of "Mister Babadook" seems innocent enough. A children's tale meant to frighten and it truly does it's job. Not only has this book sparked Terror for six year old Samuel, it has started to bring great fear into his mother Amelia. From Writer/Director Jennifer Kent comes THE BABADOOK. The official trailer is down below and it looks really good.
THE BABADOOK stars Essie Davis, Noah Wiseman, Daniel Henshall, Hayley McElhinney, Barbara West, Ben Winspear, and Tim Purcell.
"Six years after the violent death of her husband, Amelia (Essie Davis) is at a loss. She struggles to discipline her ‘out of control’ 6 year-old, Samuel (Noah Wiseman), a son she finds impossible to love. Samuel’s dreams are plagued by a monster he believes is coming to kill them both.
When a disturbing storybook called ‘The Babadook’ turns up at their house, Samuel is convinced that the Babadook is the creature he’s been dreaming about. His hallucinations spiral out of control, he becomes more unpredictable and violent. Amelia, genuinely frightened by her son’s behavior, is forced to medicate him.
But when Amelia begins to see glimpses of a sinister presence all around her, it slowly dawns on her that the thing Samuel has been warning her about may be real.”
THE BABADOOK will be in theaters November 27th and is coming to VOD November 28th.
