Alexa here with your film curio of the week. Like Nathaniel, Jennifer Kent's The Babadook was one of my favorite films of 2014. I thought it a masterpiece on the horrors of isolation, a sibling to The Shining, but with a feminist spin, a modern horror version of "The Yellow Wallpaper." And I think it criminal that Essie Davis's performance was not a major part of the Oscar discussion.
So I couldn't let today pass without mentioning the crowdfunding campaign that ends tomorrow Monday the 19th to print the pop-up book from the film. Although the minimum order of 2000 has been achieved, guaranteeing copies of the book will creep out legions of children in the future, if you pre-order a copy by midnight Monday PST your copy will be signed by Jennifer Kent! And, according to this article in The Times, the book will "include much of what appears in the film version, with additional narrative to bring its story to a conclusion."
Order your copy here, if you are willing to accept the consequences.
