The Babadook 

3/4 stars

This is psychological horror at its best: creepy, tense and lingering; one of those films that makes you think and raises the hair on the back of your neck. The movie sneaks up on you, starting as an overstressed mother dealing with her supposed problem child (and still unable to get over the death of her husband six years ago), not realizing the darkness is much closer than she thinks. A random children's book shows up and allows that stress, fear and evil to manifest leading down a dark path. Is the ending redemption or wish fulfillment? Depending on whether you're a glass half-full or half-empty person, you could read it in different ways. One thing is for certain, between this film and It Follows, horror is making a comeback.
