E33 - Exploring the Depths of 'The Babadook': A Paranormal Analysis

Sep 09, 2023

Ever been intrigued by the mysteries of horror films and the eerie entities they portray? Brace yourself for a gripping discussion as Anna Schmidt of the Perfectly Paranormal podcast and I unravel the chilling narrative and thematic depth of the 2014 Australian horror film, The Babadook. We dive into the plot's fascinating dynamics, the cast's extraordinary performances, and the unique challenges faced by a young actor immersed in a spooky role. 

From the first eerie encounter to the climactic power struggle, The Babadook takes its viewers through a haunting journey of possession and redemption. Anna and I dissect the progression of the paranormal presence in the film, shedding light on the emotional trauma that fuels its manifestation. As a twist, we discuss a less conventional approach to dealing with such entities, prioritising emotional resonance over traditional tools. We even bring to light a recent, real-life case that tests this unique approach.

Moving beyond the spectral spookiness, our conversation delves into the profound themes and imagery that create the haunting ambience of The Babadook. How does the strained relationship between Amelia and her sister underpin the narrative tension? What's the story behind the sinister book that introduces the Babadook? Join us as we navigate these dark narratives and the enigmatic corners of the horror genre.
