Stefan Drees's rating of the film The Babadook

For me one of the best horror films of the last years: the Babadook as metaphor for the unresolved fears in one’s life. The effectiveness lies in the simplicity of story and narration, and the possibility that everything may be delusional, resulting from the trauma which determines the relationship between mother and son. Furthermore, cinematography (e.g. light, shadows and colors) and sound design are brillant.
