The Babadook 
A Monster You Can't Get Rid Of
3/4 stars

So, this movie is pretty damn creepy but it couldn't really scare me, at least not in the ways that I was expecting it to. I think it had a lot to do with the fact that the nightmare in The Babadook is a very personal one. Basically, because the main character never discusses her husband's death, all of her pent up thoughts and feelings sort of manifested into this monster called the babadook- a monster that she can't get rid of. Even at the movie's end she doesn't get rid of it, she simply learns to live with it in the same way that she has to learn to live with her husband's death in a healthier way instead of just pushing everything back. I thought it was a very interesting horror movie- and one with a genuinely satisfying ending, which isn't something that happens a lot in this genre. Essie Davis also did very well in portraying an array of different characters and emotions throughout, whether it be an exhausted mother, a broken down widow, or a deranged monster.
