One More Full Trailer for Australian Horror Favorite 'The Babadook'
"If it's in a word. Or it's in a look. You can't get rid of…" IFC Midnight has debuted one more full trailer for Jennifer Kent's The Babadook, the Australian horror-thriller that is winning over audiences. The film just played at Fantastic Fest earlier this week, after premiering at Sundance in January. One tweet review from the fest called it: "Powerful. Beautiful/horrifying imagery matched [with] a potent human story." It'll finally be hitting theaters and VOD starting this November, and it's one of the best horror films to catch this year. The trailer does show a lot, as expected, but it's a great setup to intrigue those not yet interested. Everyone should be, it's a fine example of how compelling original horror can be. "It's just a book… it can't hurt you."
Here's the latest official US trailer for Jennifer Kent's The Babadook, direct from IFC's YouTube:
Do you want to die?!” seven-year-old Samuel asks his stressed-out single mother, Amelia. But is it a threat or a warning. After dealing with Samuel’s frantic tantrums his entire life, Amelia suspects that her son has begun directing his violent misbehavior toward her. However, after a dark and foreboding children’s book called Mister Babadook mysteriously appears on Samuel’s bookshelf, Amelia must decide if her son is truly deranged, or if there really is a bogeyman lurking in their darkened halls at night. Essie Davis and Noah Wiseman star in The Babadook, written and directed by Jennifer Kent, which premiered at Sundance earlier this year. IFC Midnight will release The Babadook in theaters and VOD starting November 28th this fall.
