Wow. Just wow. The first trailer for Jennifer Kent's Sundance selected horror film The Babadook
has arrived online and in a lineup jammed with high profile familiar faces it appears that Kent may very well be the dark horse that comes in with no fanfare and exits with the lion's share of the fanfare. This, kids, is one hell of a trailer.
From breakthrough writer-director Jennifer Kent comes the creepy psychological horror movie The Babadook, making its world premiere in Sundance's Midnight section. The film tells of a single mother, plagued by the violent death of her husband, who battles with her son's nighttime fear of a shadowy monster. But soon, she must confront the sinister presence lurking in the house. With echoes of past and contemporary classics like Rosemary's Baby, The Tenant, The Exorcist, The Omen and Let the Right One In, the film is an immaculately crafted tale starring Essie Davis and Noah Wiseman. The supporting cast includes Daniel Henshall, Hayley McElhinney, Barbara West, and Ben Winspear.
