HKFanatic's rating of the film The Babadook

"The Babadook" successfully synthesizes a bevy of notable influences, from German Expression to "A Nightmare on Elm Street" and "Repulsion," while still making its own singular contribution to the genre of psychological horror. The Caligari-esque pop-up monster may be the 'hook,' but in the end he's merely a device to talk about bi-polar disorder, sexual frustration, and a host of other contemporary maladies.
