A six year old Samuel is becoming more and more difficult to handle by his widowed mother Amelia. He then starts to have dreams about a monster known as babadook. Things start to become eerie when a storybook called “The babadook” shows up at his home. Samuel is completely sure that his is the monster of his dreams and starts to belligerent. The mother doesn’t know what to do with him, so she starts to sedate him with medicine.

It presents grief as a demon, questions reality, and creeps out the viewer by making psychopathology seem like something that could happen to anybody.

At its heart, "The Babadook" is a story of mother and son, whose relationship ultimately determines whether they survive the demon - or die trying.
