dendy direct: the babadook

I’m not generally a horror fan, but with Mark Kermode and Simon Mayo making regular “babadook” sounds in their flagship film review podcast for weeks and months, I decided to watch it.

Again, there were playback problems with connecting the dendy direct (iPad) to the apple TV, and so part of the creepiness of the film was lost on me. Nonetheless, this is a really well executed thriller / horror film, with great performances from the two leads. You’ve never seen a pop-up book be so terrifying. Not one for kids, but if you’re a horror fan, and you’d like a movie that asks questions about grief, it’s worth a look.
