MOVIE REVIEW: THE BABADOOK (Jennifer Kent, 2014)

C97B2235-B025-48E1-8F0E-9619E16C5344

Worked as a psychological thriller, failed on supernatural element. Essie Davis was phenomenal.

Wait, why did a top hat-wearing, worm-munching monster become the newest LGBTQ icon? Sure he was dressed like Tito Boy, but which part was supposed to be a metaphor for coming out and being loud and proud? Help!!

Rating: ★★★☆☆
