Jennifer Kent‘s The Babadook (2014) will get it’s Blu-ray, DVD and various digital platform release on February 16, 2015 in the UK thanks to Icon Film Distribution. This movie shocked many as Kent’s directorial debut. The special features include various featurettes and trailers; full details below. Starring in The Babadook are Essie Davis, Noah Wiseman and Daniel Henshall. I personally enjoyed the film and cannot wait to see more from Jennifer Kent.
Synopsis: Six years after the violent death of her husband, Amelia (Essie Davis) is at a loss. She struggles to discipline her out of control 6 year-old, Samuel (Noah Wiseman), a son she finds impossible to love. Samuel’s dreams are plagued by a sinister 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 creature in the book is the monster he’s been dreaming about. His hallucinations spiral out of control and as he becomes more unpredictable and violent, Amelia is genuinely frightened by her son’s behaviour.
But when Amelia begins to see glimpses of a sinister presence all around her, it slowly dawns on her that the thing Samuel has been warning her about - The Babadook - may be real after all…
