Terrifying trailer for 'The Babadook': 'Don't let him in!'

Posted on

Many children would love it if their books came alive, filled as they often are with princesses and unicorns and so forth. But what if the tome in question concerned a terrifying, German expressionism-inspired monster? No, my friends, that would not be so pleasant as 7-year-old Samuel (Noah Wiseman) and his mother Amelia (Essie Davis) discover in forthcoming horror film The Babadook.

Written and directed by first-time filmmaker Jennifer Kent, The Babadook arrives in cinemas Nov. 28. Watch the film’s new spine-chilling trailer below.
