The Babadook is a horror film that starts off strong but loses me towards the end. A large part of this actually has to do with the stock sounds used for the Babadook. Whenever I hear a commonly used stock sound, it immediately takes me out of the film. For a film like The Babadook, where atmosphere plays such a big role, being taken out like that makes it damn near impossible to get back in. Also the kid was annoying as fuck.
