Mr_Jones’s review published on Letterboxd:
The Babadook isn't really about the Babadook...
This is metaphorical filmmaking at its very best. That's why people expecting a straightforward monster movie will be disappointed. This is real life horror and it's so effective.
Essie Davis... what an acting performance... Forget about Kirsten Dunst in Melancholia, this has to be the ultimate rendition of depression/mental sickness.
