“Six years after the death of her husband, Amelia (Essie Davis) struggles to discipline her ‘out-of-control’ six-year-old Samuel (Noah Wiseman) – a son she finds difficult to love. Samuel’s dreams are plagued by a monster he believes is coming to kill them both. When a disturbing storybook called ‘The Babadook’ turns up at their house, Samuel is convinced that the Babadook is the creature he’s been dreaming about. And when Amelia begins to see glimpses of the creature herself, it slowly dawns on her that the thing Samuel has been warning her about may well be real.”
There’s no official release date yet, but the film was screened at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival and it received much praise. So we may expect a movie studio to pick the rights quite soon.
