Isn’t The babadook a metaphor for grief. Like it never goes away, you just have to learn to live with it
Jasmine Lav.
For those who don't already know, The Babadook is an actual Australian folktale used here as a metaphor for grief. Her husband died in an accident the night their son was born and she refused to deal with it until all her relationships suffered. "You can't get rid of the Babadook" means that mourning a lost loved one never truly ends, you just learn to live with it. (Hence the scene in the basement - she still misses her husband, but she's not letting it ruin her life anymore.)

Your not you when your hungry Mr. Babadook, here have a snickers Babadook: * turns into Kanye * Babadook: thanks!!!
Man, I hated this movie. Mainly because of the kid. The kid alone should register 1000 sins. Honestly, the Babadook was the most likeable character in the entire movie.

How could you skip the most iconic scene!? "WHY CAN'T YOU JUST BE NORMAL!?"
I watched this at a sleepover and cried. Not because I was scared, but because she killed the dog and didn't even apologize or get him a new one!

Haunting is one thing but when you unleash roaches that’s too far

in my country there is a magical thing called mothers sandal or a wooden cooking spoon that beats the shit out of the demon from you!
Even though it didn’t quite make sense, this movie had me BabaSHOOK
I kinda feel like you missed the fact that the Babadook is a representation of clinical depression, which is why it can't be "Beaten" and it must instead be accepted and managed, and also why it's sort of but not really "possessing" someone.

5:08 No, that's autism. You'll come to realize that kids with autism are honest about everything, they usually don't have a censor, and these episodes that Samuel has is completely normal for a child with autism. Believe me, I know this shit because I used to be like him myself. I grew out of it eventually. It just took a really long time, I didn't stop having these episodes until between 7-8 grade. But I would not say Samuel sucks. Do your research Cinema Sins.

9:51 you missed a really good joke "abradook kadabradook."
"She makes me tea whenever I visit"😂
Aww man you skipped the ultimate meme scene, the "why can't you be normal" scene!
Not to mention that thanks to Netflix, this movie was mistaken for a gay icon!

If you rearrange the letters in “babadook” it’s “a bad book”

Babadook more like babashook

The babadook is basically her depression because her depression gets tougher to deal with when Sam’s birthday comes around (because of the dads death) that’s why the “monster” appears and she battles it, which is her battling her depression, remember her sister telling her it’s time to get over her husband’s death? So she technically defeats her depression (and thus the babadook) but it never truly goes away, she’s just able to deal with it from now on.

Thats all it baba-took?
It’s true that every movie has sins...but these aren’t sins, most of them. They’re just mean-spirited barbs for views...which equals MONEY. I used to enjoy these...now with all of the articles coming out about who and what is behind this...I’ve lost all respect. This was truly one of the best original horror films in a long time. Sure it’s hokey at times...and has cliches...but so what? It’s film. Fiction. Fun.

This was a good movie. Isn’t the babadook the manifestation of the 5 stages of grief?

The "KangaLassie" he was referring to at 5:21 was actually an Australian TV show called "Skippy the Bush Kangaroo". Also known as Skippy, the show ran from 1968 to 1970. It had a 90s animated reboot and it's own movie, and occasionally still airs on most television networks. It is still an Aussie icon to this day. Great video by the way, keep up the good work, mate! 😉
lol it spells a bad book
Alley Oliver
He doesn’t posses, as far as I understand. He just kind of influences. Also, it’s... it’s a metaphor. Did that not come across? The Babadook is grief, if I remember right. (Haven’t seen the movie in a while). She choose her son over being obsessed with her husbands death. It’s still there cause grief never really goes away.
I once had a dream where there was a monster that looked like a practically dead person with little strands of blonde hair and the twist is... it ends up becomeing my best freind and wears a bedazzled jean jacket and a short skirt, but then i end up hanging out with the cool kids and it just goes back to its dimension. This actually happened in a dream. Don’t ask me how, it just did.
wait she screams loud enough to shatter glass but her son is fine...?
Morgan Wtf
I always thought that Samuel liked Amelia. You didn’t sin when the Samuel did something behind Amelia when he hugged her in that musician scene. That kid is FUCKED UP.

You completely misunderstood this movie

In My Personal opinion, I LOVED The Babadook. I always loved horror, ever sense I was 4. I feel like you really need to understand the film to get it. Well made! I feel like ever sense 2014-ish horror movies have gotten worse. But this was amazing!
Just watched this movie last night. It honestly terrified me, so I figured I'd watch the Cinemasins to ease my fear a bit. Did not disappoint! :D That being said, though, I probably won't be able to look at a dark area ever again without seeing that creepy face. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Ah, well.
To all the people shouting "you don't get it!" or "It's a symbol for grief!"... Just because the movie had a metaphor, that does not automatically mean it was a GOOD metaphor.

I don't think you should "sin" the movie just because it's something you don't like, agree with, or understand. Sins should be for actual movie mistakes or plot holes.. *Ding*

The Babadook is grief! Google interviews with the writer/director. It's a metaphor. Stupid blunt Yankee Doodle Wanker.

Winning an Australian game of Bingo, which apparently has five billion different blue to white or white to blue color changing balls, is probably slightly less rare than finding the rerun of the lone episode of KangaLassie that only aired when the Babadook haunted its first victim.

When 'The Greatest Showman' comes out, you should sin that. It does have a lot of songs but there are so many sins you could point out

6:34, No , the babodook possesses the person when they deny it exists.
No wonder why it’s on Netflix
Soooo, you did understand that the Babadook isn't real right? This isnt a monster movie. It's a movie about a women falling into insanity under the pressure of loneliness, being a pariah, and tending to a child with difficult needs. Everything "the Babadook" did was actually done or imagined by the mother. She was never possesed. She just went insane. If you dont believe me, remember the pop up book they found? Now remember the scene at the party where the mother explains that she made childrens books? Like pop up childrens books perhaps?

Aaaaaaaaand dislike for sinning kanga-lassie
Gacha Gurl
Ah krampas! XD
You can't sin Samuel for being an 'expert' about the Babadook. Remember the first time his mum read the story to him? 'You can't get rid of the Babadook' was on the first page second line. It was the first thing the fucking book said. It's probably the thing that he remembered the most about him.

The real "horror" of this movie is understanding how devastating loss can be, and how one's grief can lead to terrible treatment of others. It can make a monster out of an innocent child in the resentful mind of a grief-stricken parent.

The Babadook what a lad, always hanging up his coat and hat, retreating to his room after someone yelled at him, and not eating to much.

This is one of those movies that Arty types use to show you how much smarter they are than you for enjoying the movie you hated because it had "Hidden meanings" you just SIMPLY WASN'T SMART ENOUGH TO NOTICE. when in reality its a boring pile of Babadook.

Wasnt the creature just a metaphor for her own fears and inner demons? Pretty sure thats why the creature logic doesnt always work.
