The Babadook ★★★★

It's hard to tell if I'm going soft, or if horror films are getting scarier, but I genuinely cannot cope with them anymore, and it's a massive disappointment for me.

The Babadook had me crying with fear - eyes closed and hands over ears. Yep, I'm upset with myself too.

This was an amazing film though. Really intelligent with some absolutely mind blowing performances and some really talented cinematographers. The first truly terrifying horror film in a long time.

Maybe pay attention to some of the reviews from people who didn't wimp out and actually watched the film rather than peeked through fingers, but even I can tell how great this was. Despite dying off through the screening.
