A dysfunctional family, two funerals, mystical things happening, and an overwhelming sense of foreboding. That about sums it up. For me, This is one of the best of the year so far. The story, the actors, the editing, And, the overall flavor of this film is spooky. I was absolutely amazed watching Toni Collette's face emote through truly terrifying events.
As always, this won't be for everyone. But for those who's enjoy and intriguing Near terrifying experience this is it. Common circumstances are turned in to a nightmarish Theatre of evil. Some may want to walk in, some may want to stay at home and see this.

This has re-opened as a day-long feature instead of two nightly showings. Glad to see it.
Very few frights and a stupid plot.
I'm going back and I will be going "thronk" at the right moments.
I was robbed! :-)
Collette and Wolff gave super strong performances. I wonder where Collette pulled those demonic looks of anger from? You just don't see a face contort like that. Byrne's overall demeanor and rationality just didn't seem possible in such a situation. I presume he was caught into being the family anchor. Admittedly, as the film got to the 3/4's point the plot began to soften up but not enough to throw the film away.
All hail, Paimon.
PS. Collette better get a nomination for her emotionally supercharged performance.
...a very will done film and Toni Collette should get an Oscar nomination.
The Babadook crosssed with Rosemary's Baby.
But I didn't like it - it's very edgy but I don't need more of this kind of anxiety in my life.
As Wonka said - it's not for everybody.
