What’s most menacing about The Babadook is its incredible storybook sequence. The gleeful rhyming with such malicious intent, the wide, hungry smile of a confrontational animated creature. Look, here’s a Season’s Greetings done in that style!
IFC has sent out a touching holiday e-card from The Babadook(dook, dook). If you’ve not seen the film yet, I can’t think of a better time do so than immediately. It’s one of the best of the year, and it’s Friday night.
