Overall, very 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.

A suffocating and ambiguously realistic horror movie, whose scares stay with the audience for a long time. A triumph for suspenseful filmmaking.

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.

After all the hype I'm quite disappointed. Well built tension that falls flat on its face once the action starts.

Creepy and disturbing yes, scary not so much. The acting was a bit over the top and the editing and directing could've used some work. The ending was a bit weak but altogether a very good film.
