Would horror film lovers enjoy The Babadook?
The Babadook reminds us of the reason why we created this website. We are so unbelievably confused as to why this horror film has such high reviews, when it is genuinely such an un-scary film. We wouldn’t even put this film in my top 50 horror films, so we don’t understand how on some website it has around 95 – 100% review. The film just is not scary, the storyline is cheesy and the suspense is massively let down by the poor execution of this film. Most trashy horror films use jump scares to make it “scary”, but this film didn’t even have that to bring it up slightly to a moderately okay horror film. You definitely can go without watching this film if you’re a horror lover. We don’t even think that non-horror film lovers will find this film scary. Check out the film for yourself though and let us know what you thought.
