Watched this last night. It was tragically dumb, irrational, and wasn't very scary. The acting by the little boy was so terrible I wanted to feed him to the ****ing Badabook about 10 minutes into the movie.

If you make it to the ending, you're going to punch yourself in the testicles...

I watched it on Halloween.

I'm still debating with myself about it.

I think it's a very Love it or hate it movie with not a lot of in between.

It's a not a cheap thrills movie, there aren't really any "jump out and gotcha" moments.

I thought it was actually pretty good up until the end, which was very open ended and leaves a lot to the imagination. I watched it with the others. Two females and a teenage boy.

The teenage boy hated it.

The two women were into it until the end. They didn't like the ending and therefore dismissed the rest of the movie.

I thought it had a a lot of good artistic qualities to it, but it's not a traditional horror movie and there are moments when it makes you remember that it's a low budget movie.

Overall, im not sure how i feel about it. There's a lot of things i liked about it, a few things that i didn't.

Either way, it's still fun to annoy the shit out of my wife in the middle of the night with the "Babadook dook dook dook dook"

It's more of a Pysch thriller than a Horror and you'll spend most of the movie wondering if there is a monster or if Mom is simply unraveling due to her stress and lack of sleep.

I thought the movie did a really good job with that. The acting from the mother was outstanding. The boy was so annoying that you wanted to punch him in the face about 5 minutes in, but that was clearly by design to demonstrate how much the mother is stressing because she can't handle her son's behavior.

One of the females and the teenager i watched it with said the same thing Fish said, "I hope the babadook eats the little ****er".

Essentially, the movie is about the unconditional love between a mother and son and the mom's inner demons. You're left to wonder if the monster is real or a manifestation of the mother's psychotic breakdown.

Then the ending happens.....And i think that's what really makes or breaks this movie for a person. The ending is very "wtf".

That summary doesn't do it justice though. It's not really fair to the movie. The summary is very dismissive and it acts like the movie is cut in dry. It's not, it's very much up to interpretation.

The ending is very much up to interpretation. If you're the kinda person who takes something at face value, then the ending will appear incredibly stupid. If you like to dig a bit deeper and think about the meaning of things and seek out clues during the course of the movie, then you might've enjoyed it a bit more.

Like i said, people will either hate it or love it, depends on your taste in movies. It's by no mean your typical Hollywood Horror movie.

This movie got a 96% on Rotten tomatoes....

but i don't see the general public giving it anywhere close to that kind of rating.

Ehhh...not trying to hype it, just trying to give credit where credit is due.

It wouldn't shock me at all if someone watches it, comes back and says they hate it.

Different strokes for different folks.

I think the trailer makes it seem like more of a horror movie than it is, which actually takes away from the movie.

It's an Australian, low budget indie film.

I enjoyed it. It had me thinking about it the next day. The 3 people i watched it with didn't like it and neither did Fish.

Movie critics seem to really love it.

I don't know. I can't sit here and tell you, "you have to watch this movie, you'll love it".

But if you're into the horror/thriller genre, i say you should at least give it a shot.

Yeah, you kinda missed some of the finer points.

Her screaming at the kid and being an asshole was something that evolved over time as she continued to lose her mind. That was the point the movie was trying to make. Remember, the movie doesn't start that way. She starts off as a very caring mother and progressively gets worse, assuming under the pressure of her misbehving child and the death of her husband that she tries to push under the rug, even though its consuming her.

And the standoff...that was very well explained several times through out the movie....it's even noted in the trailer.

As far as the ending goes, i feel that it's very, very open ended. Im not sure it's SUPPOSE to be taken literally.

Im not sure that the Babadook was even a REAL thing, but rather a manifestation.

If you notice, the handling of the Babadook shared a lot of similarities to the way she handled her dead husband. And the end was essentially symbolic of her coming to terms with her OWN inner demons.

I think the message is a lot deeper than you're giving credit for. I don't believe it's intended to be taken at face value.

it's the same conversation i had with my wife, who enjoyed the movie up until the confusing ending.
