"It’s Episode 48! We welcome back guests Dave and Jen from Getting Better Acquainted and The Family Tree to discuss The Babadook, Dave’s choice.
The Babadook is a 2014 Australian psychological horror mother and son film, directed by Jennifer Kent, and a firm favourite of Mark Kermode.
Part nightmarish fairytale, part exploration of grief, part creaky house horror The Babadook is a terrifying beautiful journey into madness making one of the most intriguing horror films of recent times.
What it lacks in gore and blood it makes up for in tension and fear, think Don’t Look Now and The Shining, at times genuinely terrifying!
Overall The Babadook scores 4.1 - pretty high and strongly recommended by Flixwatcher and Dave and Jen, rather surprising was that less love was shown from Twitter. Potentially a bit of a Marmite film.
What do you guys think? Have you seen The Babadook? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!
Thanks to the Episode #048 Crew of Dave and Jen from The Family Tree @familytreepod and Getting Better Acquainted @GBAPodcast

It has to be Putting on the Ritz, but there is no Gene Wilder version so we have added the Mel Torme Version!
