Amelia (Essie Davis), the heroine of Jennifer Kent’s horror movie THE BABADOOK, is an Australian single mother haunted by memories of her late husband’s tragic death. As the story opens, Amelia is raising her young son Samuel (Noah Wiseman), a sweet-natured but very precocious and troubled little boy. Samuel’s conduct stresses Amelia to the breaking point. The situation at home grows much more bizarre when Samuel asks his mom to read to him, and produces a strange children’s storybook from his bedroom shelf. Entitled “The Babadook,” it’s an eerie pop-up book with charcoal illustrations of a demonic figure that announces itself by knocking at the door of a house six times.
Will call tickets may be picked up at The Cary Box Office beginning one hour prior to the movie.
