Blunt Reviews Presents: The Babadook (2014)


Modern horror just found its masterpiece. Jennifer Kent’s first film is absolutely phenomenal and shows that she is a force to be reckoned with as a director and a writer. This isn’t the usual cliched splattering of jump scares and gore, it is a genuinely scary film that crawls under your skin and makes every hair stand on end. It goes back to basic visual effects and uses a fantastically written screenplay to develop characters and inject substance¬†into the narrative. In the waves of useless horror projects this film stands out as one of the best of our time.
