The Babadook picked up for distribution by IFC Midnight

After its terrific Sundance Premiere, IFC Midnight has picked up the rights to distribute Jennifer Kent’s The Babadook, an Australian horror film, and will be in theaters and on-demand services later this year, reports Variety.

The Babadook stars Essie Davis and Noah Wiseman as Amelia and Samuel, a mother, and son who — six years after the death of their husband and father Oskar (Benjamin Winspear) — are haunted by Samuel’s monster of nightmares, The Babadook.

The Babadook is Jennifer Kent’s feature film directorial debut, and judging from the film’s response at Sundance, it seems to be definitely worth seeing.

“…Six years after the death of her husband, Amelia struggles to discipline her “out-of-control” six-year-old Samuel – a son she finds difficult to love. Samuel’s dreams are plagued by a monster he believes is coming to kill them both. When a disturbing storybook called “The Babadook” turns up at their house, Samuel is convinced that the Babadook is the creature he’s been dreaming about. And when Amelia begins to see glimpses of the creature herself, it slowly dawns on her that the thing Samuel has been warning her about may well be real.”
