    "I've heard from friends of mine that this is one of the best scary/horror films to be released in recent time. So if I was looking for the best recent scary film, The Babadook would definitely be on the shortlist. If I wasn't concerned about whether it was old or recent though it probably wouldn't be as high on my list."

    "This was pretty interesting to watch. Had a couple of suspenseful and scary moments, but not too different from other films that I've seen. I still found it good for what it was, and may watch it again at a later point with my spouse, since they haven't seen it yet and would most likely want me to watch it with them."

    "Movie seems to be super scary and particularly when the horror part happens in the form of child. The mom is a single mom who lives all by herself in her house with her only kid. With no support around for her, it is going to be a chilling experience to watch her struggle with this horrific experience."

    "This got such high reviews, that despite my misgivings, I watched it. It was stupid. I don't mind implausible, but this was just so insultingly bad that I was offended. The plot moved like molasses, the characters were annoying, and I just don't see what people see in it."

    "It's October and the perfect time to get your horror movie watching on. The Babadook feels slightly derivative of a number of other thrillers out there but still manages to deliver the fear. Its watchable and holds quite a few surprises."

    "The Babadook is a horror film but the question arises as to whether or not it ranks as one of the best horror films. Given it's rating, I would argue that it does not."
