The Babadook

   Watched THE BABADOOK which is a darn creepy Australian horror movie about an apparently haunted children's book. I will warn folks that it's very slow in comparison to what we usually see in the US, but give it time as it needs to build slowly. This was a low budget film, and the special effects are intentionally low tech, but the 'in camera' feel gives it a reality that a lot of the recent CGI fests can't provide.
    The movie plays on childhood fears and upon the fears of parents as well. Not one to watch with the kiddies.
