The Babadook ★★★

Characters and acting are great. The atmosphere is probably one of the strongest aspects of this movie -it is genuinely creepy and the tension builds slowly, but constantly. Story is good - however, when the movie finally reaches the climax, a lot of power and potential are lost - the ending simply feels too "stretched". But despite this, "Babadook" is still a good movie - it's worth watching because of the atmosphere, characters and great acting.
