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.
