#5 - The Babadook (2013) dir. Jennifer Kent
‘If it’s in a word or it’s in a look,you can’t get rid of the Babadook’
If psychological horror is your type of horror, then you can’t really go wrong with The Babadook. A very deeply emotional look at the very real horror of mental illness, The Babadook is scary in many different ways. The cinematography is incredible and so is the editing. The acting by Essie Davis is nothing short of amazing and so is the child acting. It’s has an aura of uneasiness about it and it’s a very effective piece of horror filmmaking.
