The Babadook
Such is the state of the horror genre that we're more used to digesting news about (another) "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" prequel than anything resembling an original concept or project. So the excitement around "The Babadook" is notable. It made waves at the Sundance Film Festival in January, and is set to hit Fantastic Fest next month. So here's a new-ish trailer for the film.

Tusk
Fall festival season is fast approaching, with the Venice Film Festival, the Toronto Film Festival and the New York Film Festival each unveiling glimpses of their lineups over the last few weeks. But let's not forget their deviant little Texan cousin, Fantastic Fest. The genre-led festival in Austin, which like the more established events is essentially spring break for movie buffs but with karaoke and queso instead of sex and drugs, is heading into its tenth year and just announced the first additions to its 2014 line-up.

The Babadook
In a small, tucked-away and unnamed Australian suburb, the already ill-behaved Samuel is getting worse. A seven-year-old with an unchecked imagination, unruly hair and teeth, and an untamed nature, Samuel is running wild. Consequently, his widowed, single and stressed-out mother Amelia is having a hard time coping with his feral temperament. But if Samuel’s myriad problems appear to be the unfortunate, but characteristic, tantrums of a poorly-adjusted and damaged child without a father figure or friends, the boy’s issues soon takes on a much darker edge.

The Babadook
There have been many films from this year’s Sundance Film Festival that have been buzzed about, many of which were anticipated beforehand. What’s most exciting about this time of year is when a film comes out of nowhere (or in this case, from Down Under) and takes everyone by surprise. That is the case with the Australian horror film “The Babadook” which premiered at Sundance, and immediately made a rumbling around Park City, catching the ears of our team on the ground. And hopefully this trailer for the movie will get you excited too.
