The Babadook – psychological horror/drama – Premiere Pólus Cinema – Budapest

The Babadook was initially not a strong commercial success in Australia and was given a limited release in art house theatres.

First feature film from director Jennifer Kent.

A brief insight into the film… “Amelia Vanek is a troubled and exhausted widow who has brought up her six-year-old son Samuel alone. Her late husband, Oskar, was killed in a car accident that occurred as he drove Amelia to the hospital during her labour. Sam begins displaying erratic behaviour: he becomes an insomniac and is preoccupied with an imaginary monster, against which he has built weapons to fight. Amelia is forced to pick up her son from school after Sam brings one of the weapons there. One night, Sam asks his mother to read a pop-up storybook:” Mister Babadook” …

The film was primarily shot in Adelaide, South Australia, with most of the interior shots filmed on a soundstage in the Australian city

Wish to know more, catch up with the movie at the premiere screenings of the film to be held on January, 31. at 7.30 p.m. in Pólus Cinema.

District, XV., 131 Szentmihályi Road – Budapest.

The film will be shown in Hungarian at other cinemas from the 1st of  February, in the original language with Hungarian subtitles.

The film’s global premiere was in January 2014 at the Sundance Film Festival. The film then received a limited theatrical release in Australia in May, 2014, following a screening in April, 2014 at the Stanley Film Festival. In Singapore, the film was released on September 25. 2014. The film opened in the United Kingdom for general release on October, 17. 2014, and in the United States on 28 November, 28. 2014. After the international premiere, many critics cried the horror film of the year.

Horror film lovers …  with some delay coming to Hungary, but that does not go away from the fact that it is a complex, mature, and intelligent film that was very much in need of the horror genre.
