The Babadook ★★★½

The Babadook excels as both a drama and spine-chiller (chiefly in the first half, it dwindles a bit in the second) making itself the winner of two highly prestigious awards:

* Best horror flick of 2014 (not that there's much competition)

* Best condom commercial ever made

Thank you Australia, for another top-notch terrifier. Keep 'em coming, please!
