The Babadook gets Limited Edition Blu-ray and UHD 4K Release from Second Sight. Out now ( @SecondSightFilm )

Internationally renowned horror The Babadook saw The Nightingale’s Jennifer Kent make a huge impact with her feature film debut. Now Second Sight Film brings this acclaimed chiller back to life with a brand-new Limited-Edition dual format release featuring the world premiere on 4K UHD plus Blu-ray which will ensure you won’t want to get rid of The Babadook. I first saw this film upon its released and have recently revisited the film with this blu ray edition. The film is still creepy as hell, still gets under your skin, but looks and sounds even better! Get those lights turned out, and revisit one of the creepiest films of recent years

This standout film sees Essie Davis, star of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, as a grief-stricken mother who is desperately trying to bring up her troubled son the best she can, will a new book be the answer to his sleep woes, or is it the beginning of an unimaginable nightmare?

Following the violent death of her husband on the day their son Samuel (Noah Wiseman) was born, Amelia struggles with his erratic behaviour, and is still battling with the never-ending grief. Refusing to celebrate Samuel’s birthday as it’s inextricably linked to such a traumatic time, life is a struggle and the one person who’s always been there for her, her sister Hayley McElhinne’s patience is wearing thin.

As Samuel’s seventh birthday approaches his fears get worse, he’s convinced a monster is coming to get them, and he won’t settle, no matter how many bedtime stories he’s told. When an intriguing storybook appears on the bookshelf,  Samuel becomes convinced that the Babadook is the monstrous creature he’s always feared and as Amelia senses the ominous presence herself, she slowly begins to unravel.
