The Babadook isn't very scary after all

5 second plot: A single mom is struggling with her difficult son. He is fixated on a scary monster that visits him mostly at night. Things get really out of hand. Of course his mom doesn't believe him. That is until she experiences some strange stuff herself.

5 second review: It takes a very long time for this party to get started. The idea is probably to build the tension up slowly. But for me it took too long. Lots of people say this is the scariest movie of the year but I have to disagree. Some things will stick with me for a long time (that voice: BA BA DOOOOOK) but not enough scary stuff happens to let it all stick.

IMDb score: 7,1/10
