Mr. Babadook

First appearance: The Babadook (2014)

Amelia's having a hard time raising her son, born the same day her husband died. Her son's kinda weird and likes making weapons to defend her from monsters. One night her son asks if he can choose the storybook for bedtime reading and hands his mom a mysterious red pop-up book called MR. BABADOOK. She has no idea where the book came from and it's creepy. Really creepy.
suddenly mysterious things start happening around the house and her son blames The Babadook.
Things get worse from there.
Where did the book come from? Is there a way to stop The Babadook?

The movie's got a reputation of being the scariest movie ever, but it may not be the movie you're expecting. It's really good, but I don't think I'd call it scary.


  1. I wouldn't call it out right scary but definitely, "you'll think twice about going into a dark room after seeing it" scary.

    1. really? I just found it mildly depressing and really sad.
