I mostly agree.

Such a disappointing film after hearing all the critical praise.

Great price for an awesome film. Those looking for simple monster scares will leave disappointed... What's really occurring in the film is far scarier. Mental illness. :(

Lots of people buy physical media. Some people still buy DVD's as amazingly don't have blu ray players

good price but film was a let down. if anyone wants to see a reasonably good film atm I do think (lights out) is worth a pop

No excuse for not having a blu-ray player now I say - decent branded one will often come up on offer for about £30! As for streaming...? Never been interested and never will be. You're at the mercy of servers, internet connection and if the host will even still have your film around to watch when you want to watch it. Oh and not forgetting a little mass downtime via Netflix hacking. No thanks I'll cut out all the crap and stick to my lovely blu-rays which I buy once then they're mine forever - or I can even sell them on or give them away.

Haha I thought that I watched it the other night and there were a few bits in it that I had to rewind because I couldn't stop laughing like when he says he's hungry and she tells him to eat sh**

***SPOILERS - PLEASE SKIP IF YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED IT***









I don't know want to sound patronising but out of interest - those that didn't "enjoy" it what did you think was about? I ask because it's one of my favourite films of recent times. I think you can enjoy it to a certain extent on the surface level as a simple monster scare flick but there's a whole lot more going on... The book isn't magic - she makes it - there's one solitary line in the film that references the fact to she was a children's book author and its never mentioned again - also the book doesn't reappear in perfect condition when damaged, it's taped together, by a human - and when she burns it that's when it goes for good. The child never had any paranormal visions, he only has the fear and unrest instilled in him by his mum - she has the visions, no one else. The Babadook is a manifestation of depression, her schizophrenia, her PTSD - whatever mental illness you see it as - it's about her resentmen of her son - she blames the son for her husband's death and the film is her descent mental illness. The final scenes where he tells her he loves her despite everything and the bit where they accept the Babadook/depression will never truly leave and will live in the basement (her head) forever, I thought, was powerful... I challenge anyone with any experience in people with MH issues not to be affected by that.

Anyways, I just wondered what people thought. Hope I haven't accidentally spoiled an amazing film for anyone.

Agreed dreadful film. Fair play to ceephax for dissecting it in that much detail but after the first ten mins was bored senseless and only just managed to finish it due to sheer willpower.

I thought this was nowhere near as scary as it was made out to be, very disappointing film

A film loved by the critics but a big disappointment to many who watched it, including me.

I don't understand the negativity - i thought this film was one of the best "horror" (if you can call it that) films in years. Maybe people were expecting unsubtle jump scares constantly?
I watched the new Blair Witch film last night and it's interesting to see the difference 20 years has made in terms of how the films are constructed - the new one is like a horror for the vine generation

That's very well summed up. I too think it's one of the best horror films of recent times. I thought the mother/son relationship was portrayed superbly by the two leads and it was genuinely very creepy, similar to the brilliant Japanese and Korean horror films that were being made 20 years ago (Dark Water especially). If you like this then I would recommend Under the Shadow and The Witch (and if you thought it was dreadful I would definitely avoid these!!)

Heat for price but I think all the goodwill you give the film for 90% of the duration isn't repaid by the very silly laughable ending section. Watched it with the wife and she was peaking behind the cushion to start but laughing by the end.

Great and chilling film up until you first see it properly, so the first third of it is quite creepy then the rest is like meh. Would risk a purchase at £1.99 ;)
#22
Definitely a marmite film but found it quite disturbing rather than scary. I enjoyed it but my brother in law thought it was rubbish. Each to their own with this one.

Thanks for the recommendations! I'm not usually a big horror fan, but loved this - as Ceephax said, the way it deals with themes of depression and grief really got under my skin. Along with It Follows, one of my favourite horrors in quite a while!

Just seen this in my local Asda for £3 also. Think the film is **** though.

I don't buy into the paranormal genre films but I highly enjoyed this. One of the best horrors of the 2010's. Excellent film.
