The Babadook ★★★★★

The film sustains anxiety in the unknown, and the film has many genuinely frightening and unsettling moments throughout thanks to incredible editing and sound design. While not every element of the film fits together perfectly, they are very much artistic liberties and means to an end that only add to a film that is very open to further reading; in particular an ending which may leave many to decide on whichever context it bares itself to. The Babadook is a great picture that utilises old and new tropes to the best of their effects, and a fresh reminder of just how powerful true horror can really feel.
