The Babadook – 4K UHD Unboxing

Jennifer Kent’s The Babadook is one of the most acclaimed and unforgettable horror films of the last 10 years, presenting a horrifying singular vision of a supernatural pop-up book, alongside a powerful study of grief. It is a remarkable film that has earned acclaim ever since its 2014 release, and the lovely folks at Second Sight Films have given it the release it deserves with this utterly beautiful Limited Edition 4K UHD/Blu-ray package.
