The Babadook xmas

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…at least that’s what the song says that’s been stuck in my head for most of this Christmas season. It’s the time of year when even the most vile of creatures are spreading their own brand of yuletide terror, er, I mean cheer. In celebration of the season, IFC Midnight have sent a special Christmas e-card from the star of the hit horror film, The Babadook. Check it out down below.

Plot Synopsis

Six years after the violent death of her husband, Amelia (Essie Davis) is at a loss. She struggles to discipline her ‘out of control’ 6-year-old, Samuel (Noah Wiseman), a son she finds impossible to love. Samuel’s dreams are plagued by a monster he believes is coming to kill them both. When a disturbing storybook called ‘The Babadook’ turns up at their house, Samuel is convinced that the Babadook is the creature he’s been dreaming about. His hallucinations spiral out of control; he becomes more unpredictable and violent. Amelia, genuinely frightened by her son’s behavior, is forced to medicate him. But when Amelia begins to see glimpses of a sinister presence all around her, it slowly dawns on her that the thing Samuel has been warning her about may be real.
