    "I heard about this movie on a local morning radio show and looked it up. Absolutely as scary and crazy as they made it out to be. Very wild flick."

    "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."

    "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."

    "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. "

    "We watched this movie during Halloween and this gave us the creeps. It's pretty disturbing especially when the plot unfolds I can't take my eyes off the screen."

    "This movie is super scary - we watched it on a late Saturday night and we were thoroughly spooked. It's a must-watch for horror fans on Netflix."

    "I actually tried to give this movie a chance. I didn't make it very far before turning it off. I thought it was really stupid."

    "The Babadook is a horror/thriller film that's available for streaming on Netflix. It's a great solution for anyone looking for horror movies on Netflix."

    "This film is decent, but is easily outclassed by most other horror movies. The story doesn't give much room for character development."
  • Kyle Nichols
    Written on May 14, 2018
    "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."

    "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."

    "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."
