I see The Conjuring listed, I love that one.
Babadook I like too, but the kid is annoying af.
Haven't watched The Lighthouse yet, but I've only heard good things on podcasts.
Tusk, was weird af.
You guys do realize that the kid in The Babadook was meant to be annoying af right? The story was an allegory of his mother's resentment of him due to the fact that her husband died taking her to the hospital to have him. Her resentment, and resulting anger formed the psychological presence that manifested itself as 'The Babadook'. She created it and only she could beat the monster by letting go of her bitterness.
The entire movie we're meant to understand how she could be so hateful (and at times neglectful) of him by making the kid so completely over the top annoying, that at the end of the day we're not sure we even blame mom at all.
I’ve always said The Babadook is a terrible horror flick.
It’s a brilliant movie about grief and loss though.
Much like Open Water was a shitty creature feature, but a brilliant movie about the breakdown of a marriage.
Babadook was marketed horribly in my opinion, it’s not scary, just really sad
