MAIN SCREEN: THE BABADOOK

 

 

If you were ever creeped out as a child by certain books (I was. Dr Seuss's The Glunk That Got Thunk used to scare the bejeesus out of me to the point I couldn't look at the illustration) then Australian horror The Babadook looks set to strike a few chords when it screens on Frightfest's Main Screens on Saturday 23rd August at 18.30, 20.40 and 23.00. Written and directed by Jennifer Kent, The Babadook has terrified audiences since it premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. Following on from its premiere at Frightfest, Icon Film Distribution will release the film to UK and Ireland cinemas on the 24th October.

 

Synopsis:

 

Six years after the violent death of her husband, Amelia (Essie Davis) is at a loss. She struggles to discipline her 'out of control' 6 year-old, Samuel (Noah Wiseman), a son she finds impossible to love. Samuel's dreams are plagued by a sinister monster he believes is coming to kill them both.

When a disturbing storybook called 'The Babadook' turns up at their house, Samuel is convinced that the Babadook is the creature he's been dreaming about. His hallucinations spiral out of control and as he becomes more unpredictable and violent, Amelia is genuinely frightened by her son's behaviour.

But when Amelia begins to see glimpses of a sinister presence all around her, it slowly dawns on her that the thing Samuel has been warning her about may be real.
