A single mom is doing her best to raise her odd son under difficult circumstances. The child has behavioral issues including an obsessive fear of monsters. When he finds a picture book called "Mr. Babadook" their lives take yet another turn for the worse.
What I enjoyed most about this movie was the slow build of dread and the great performance by the lead actress. Without going into spoil-y details, I'm a little mixed about the ending, and would like to discuss once everyone who wants to has seen it. Or maybe I just need to watch it again and make up my own damn mind.
