It’s a truly unforgettable movie that will make for excellent pre-Halloween viewing.
Sick, the new horror movie from Scream creator Kevin Williamson, is finally available to watch at home in Ireland now.
However, for those needing more films to watch, here are the ones airing on TV this Sunday evening.
The Babadook – BBC Three – 9pm
Our pick for tonight is this 2014 Australian psychological horror about a widowed single mother (an incredible Essie Davis) and her son (Noah Wiseman) who fall into a deep well of paranoia when an eerie children’s book titled Mister Babadook manifests in their home.
The astonishing feature debut of writer-director Jennifer Kent (The Nightingale), The Babadook felt revelatory upon release for the way it uses the horror genre to tell a deeply human and powerful story about grief and parental fears.
In fact, it could be credited with kickstarting the wave of more artier hit horrors in recent years, alongside Hereditary, Get Out, It Follows and The Witch.
The Babadook is also available to rent on several services including Apple TV, Google Play, Volta and Rakuten TV.
