    This movie keeps you nervous from beginning to end. It is probably one of the most nerve racking movies I have ever seen.
  • It wouldn't let me look away just as terrifying as the exoricst

    Words can not describe how disturbing and real this horror film is. It's not just a horror film it's more about a mom's struggle to keep his out of control son after his dad's brutal violent death which makes this horror film so tense and depressing.

    The babadook sounds like a t-rex and isn't scary at all. Don't waste your time
  • Deeply Unsettling As It Is Visually Stunning

    Uber-creepy and Technically Mesmerizing. A must-watch for horror and movie fans.

    This is one of those rare movies that works very well on the horror level and the thriller level. and is a very very deep psychological movie. One of the best psychological thrillers I seen in many years.

    I really loved this movie. A lot of people are saying that it "wasn't scary", But I feel that these people would be better suited with a cheap thrill, jump scare. It was a physiological horror film, which I personally feel was even scarier. Only problem- the ending. I feel like it kinda let me down... like the director was tired of filming and was just like, "Oh well! Throw whatever you want in the end!" But Overall, I loved it.
