The Babadook – Scary as hell…

The Babadook - horror movie

“You can’t get rid of the Babadook”. Watching this trailer made the hairs on my arms stand up. Well of course, the trick of children being haunted by evil spirits is as old as the hills. But somehow, this was scary as hell in another way than I am used to. And I have been watching hundreds, maybe thousands of scary movies in my life. Perhaps it’s the fact that is starts with a childrens book that gives me the shivers. I mean like, aren’t childrens books meant to tell them bedtime stories so that the children can sleep well? And now suddenly, beacuse of this movie, reading bedtime stories isn’t safe anymore? Watch it yourself if you dare!
