As a fan of independent horror movies, I look forward to new visions of horror that haven't been watered down by the studio system and focus groups. I am particularly intrigued with the producers' goal of creating a bold, visual, and expressionist film inspired by classics like Nosferatu and Vampyr. David Lynch is cited as being an influence on director Jennifer Kent who believes his "singular ability to create a world onscreen that so closely resembles dream logic [where] not every moment can be explained in a completely literal way." Sounds like nightmarish fun!
Take a look at the terrifying trailer – I already can't get The Babadook's voice out of my head. The film was acquired by IFC Midnight with a VOD release expected later this year.
