The fear present in The Babadook is almost unfounded. It's hard to remember the last time a potent, eerie mood piece fit this much terror within its walls - both physically and psychologically. Not that films today don't have the power of scaring their audience, it's just that the effect is surface-layer for the most part, easy to shake off because of a certain distance to be attained. In other words, the fear is so within its own horror genre that once taken out the fact that it's a film meant to scare, it does nothing. The Babadook masterfully allows everyone else currently making horror films to take note,... Read More

It’s fair to say horror movies are given something of an unfair press. Unlike romance, drama, and sci-fi, they’re frequently looked upon as the poor relation and subjected to vicious critical attacks. They’re sometimes accused of only wanting to provoke a reaction, as opposed to having any higher aspirations to create screen-worthy cinema or an enduring impact. But that's no more accurate than saying all romantic flicks or dramas are the same. Thankfully, thrillers and horror films finally seem to be getting some of the recognition they deserve. Thanks to a number of classics that have combined strong storylines with masterful... Read More
