    Anybody else seen the newish horror movie the babadook?

    I saw it based on hype alone as its a critical darling but I personally felt it was a smoldering turd. The acting and cinematography were cool sure, but a great movie? Scary? Hell no.

    Seems like when something gets critical praise it's often just a big circle jerk of sophistication being piled on.

    Saw a mixed response on facebook but also did like the official movie page trolling people back who didnt like it.

    If this is the movie I've read about it looks terrifying.

    It isn't scary, it is psychological stuff.

    I enjoyed it but it isn't anything like it is being marketed as in my opinion.

    Hard to discuss it without spoiling the basic premise of the movie.

    Dumb people will hate it. 8/10


    That voice though.

    I stated there that the resolution of this film will PO a few people on this board - but to show what is really happening w the main characters there were probably few other ways it could have ended. One of those mindless Deadly Blessing (if you've seen this Wes Craven movie you'll know exactly what I'm talking about) endings would have ruined this movie..

    And as discussed with OneTonTitan - these filmakers obviously loved themselves some Mario Bava as there is a pretty neat sequence of events that honor him in this flick..
