The Babadook ★★★★

Holy crap this movie messed me up.

Great visual style wrapping two great performances. Throw on a dash of Raimi-esque insanity, a bat-crap intense final 20 minutes, and the best sound design in a looooong bit and you've got one heck of a freshman feature. Time to go watch some Funniest Home Videos or Fresh Prince of Bel-Air or something.
