Chris Savage

Any of you guys heading out to the Film 4 Fright Fest in London, England? If so, be on the look out for The Babadook, as this sucker looks set to be awesome! Still need convincing? Well, we have scored a brand new trailer courtesy of Total Film for you guys to check out below.

The film stars Essie Davis, Hayley McElhinney, and Daniel Hanshall.

Synopsis: Six years after the death of her husband, Amelia struggles to discipline her “out-of-control” six-year-old Samuel – a son she finds difficult to love. Samuel’s dreams are plagued by a monster he believes is coming to kill them both. When a disturbing storybook called “The Babadook” turns up at their house, Samuel is convinced that the Babadook is the creature he’s been dreaming about. And when Amelia begins to see glimpses of the creature herself, it slowly dawns on her that the thing Samuel has been warning her about may well be real.

IFC Midnight is handling distribution in the States.

        Looks like fun. Kind of Edward Gorey-esque.

        Folks, I think this may be the real thing.
        Also, looks as if screenplay author Jennifer Kent resolves some article debates over women in horror.
