Katherine’s review published on Letterboxd:
I feel like I can't say too much about The Babadook that will give it due justice and also I don't want to spoil anything for anyone who hasn't watched it. Don't read internet theories, go into it as unknowing as possible and get taken on the ride. What I can say is in my personal opinion it is a genius little movie. It's about many different kinds of horrors and it definitely got me feeling everything - there are a very small number of films that terrify me one second and have me quietly crying the next.
Also, I must say I love that it was a female director representing and the lead, Essie Davis, is simply fantastic.
