2014 Lone Star Film Festival: The Babadook
The Lone Star Film Festival will present the Texas premiere of The Babadook. From breakthrough writer-director Jennifer Kent comes the creepy psychological horror movie that has received an explosion of acclaim following its world premiere at Sundance 2014.
The film tells of a single mother, plagued by the violent death of her husband, who battles with her son’s night time fear of a shadowy monster. But soon, she discovers a sinister presence is lurking in the house.
With echoes of past and contemporary classics like Rosemary's Baby, The Tenant, The Exorcist, The Omen and
Let the Right One In, the film is an immaculately crafted tale that Variety called "Deeply disturbing and unusually beautiful" and indieWIRE declared to be "A flat-out masterpiece."
