I'm going to have to deduct points for that little shit of a kid that ought to have been smothered with a pillow in the first twenty minutes of the movie. And maybe a few because it's a sloppy story that doesn't really make much sense. But I'll be damned if The Babadook himself didn't make a couple completely terrifying appearances.

Honestly pretty insubstantial ultimately, but excerpting Méliès and de Chomón in your movie automatically makes it better.

This painfully realistic portrayal of grief is all the more emphasised by the symbolic monster which haunts the everyday life of the main character. Said grief is shown in a way few films have managed to do - Essie Davis is sublime in the downward spiral of mourning, denial, blame and shame. Noah Wiseman is the rare great child cinematic performance. The films lacks form a 20-minute genre cliched sequence, but overall is yet another great addition to the genre. /c Prince Charles Cinema

Overall, pretty good. It's impressive how vividly this film visualizes the anxiety/stress of parenthood. However, this film commits one of the cardinal sins of "monster" movies: it fails to establish any rules that govern the monster or its goals. So, by the end, literally everything about it feels like deus/diabolus ex machina. And yes, it is more of a psychological horror than an external horror. However, towards the end especially, it does not handle this balance satisfyingly or convincingly.

The ending was a creative and original in terms of the surface-level monster story. And it was even better in terms of the central metaphor. It's mostly just a well-made typical horror film, so you'll be pleased if that's your genre.

Unlike most in the horror genre this had some very solid acting. However the film was pretty predictable, cliche-ridden, and heavy-handed. It did create some nice creepy moments from a child and mother in isolation. The unraveling into insanity and the uneasiness it gave us was very well-portrayed. But, I think the film's unwavering dedication to its overbearing metaphor detracted from it as seen in the final sequence when they gather worms and feed the Babadook instead of ending simply gray.

The Babadook works simultaneously as a horror film and a thought-provoking drama, tackling complex themes with gut-wrenching emotional heft and solid scares.
