                        I know there are some theories about this film, that there's some incest implied between mother and son, some dismiss it but I think there are quite a few references alluding to this possibility - let me elaborate...

                        Some think the mother might be the Babadook, some think it might be the son.

                        I don't think the mother is the Babadook - I think it represents her guilt over molesting her son or allowing him to molest her. Or moreover, I think it represents or refers to the incestuous act or relationship.

                        First, we see that scene where the boy cuddles her and she moves away, the boy seems overly intrusive for a young child -- if you watch closely, he intimately touches her cheek before she pulls away, there's another scene later when he latches on tightly to her and she gets uncomfortable, pushing him away. When she asks the boy what book he wants her to read he chooses Mister Babadook, maybe Mister Babadook means something else? Could be interpreted in many ways, why not the Babadook or just Babadook, why Mister, specifically? Book is also red implying passion. She reads part of the book but she stops mid way through - guilt? I think maybe Mister Babadook is something that happened or happens between them and the boy can't forget about it.

                        She tries to pleasure herself in a later scene but her son bursts in screaming the Babadook is here. Look at the wording of the book with this idea in mind - let me in, let me in! Once you let the Babadook in he never goes away.

                        Later when her son is in her bed she opens the bedroom door to let the dog in, the Babadook let's itself in and she lies there and does nothing - even how she lies there on her back, how she reacts is pretty telling as the creature falls on her. The scene with the car could be interpreted as the boy exposing himself to her not understanding - he just shouts the Babadook is here! While the mother refuses to acknowledge - the insects creeping out of the hole and in the car scene could symbolise how she feels dirty as having let the Babadook in in the first place, she knows she did something bad that she can't really run away or hide from. I mean beatles creeping out of a hole in the's either incredibly overt or a happy accident! What's the significance of the hole and the show that she's lost her mind? I think that's already quite evident by that point, it means something. You strip away the aesthetic of the house which is a sort of representation of the mothers state of mind - because the whole tone and atmosphere of the place seems to change along with her mental state - and there's a dirty big hole with insects spilling out behind the fridge...the house is unclean.

                        I think the more you look at it like this the more you'll notice it, watch again - this is obviously all subjective and quite symbolic but it kinda adds up and gives the film a bit more depth. The end scene in the basement would then imply that the Babadook or the guilt or perhaps desire to let the Babadook back in is still there, but for now suppressed. The son wants to see the Babadook and the mother says no, but maybe some day.

                        We're led to believe the problem is with her grief over her husband, but I think her visions of the Babadook manifests as him because she projects that guilt onto herself from her husbands point of view - what would he think of her if he knew what they'd done?

                        In the end she feeds the Babadook worms? Make of that what you will. To be quite honest all through the movie I was seeing things like this, there are probably things I've forgotten but I got that sense from it before I even heard the incest theory.

                        Or maybe I'm the fucked up one, who knows. It was an interesting film but got a bit cliche towards the end which I think ruined it a bit, but I'd say a solid 8/10.

Or i'll make you kill your Dog, and i'll make you kill the Boy and then i'll make you kill yourself!" and then, Mr. Babadook telepathically said: "Beeyotch! That Boy better start acting right too! He BETTER start Acting Right TOO!!!!" (and then towards the end of the movie: The Woman AND her Boy....BOTH started acting right!) so...The Allegorical Moral to the Story was: If you want people to Act gotta MAKE em Act Right! You gotta MAKE EM!

We autistic people have to live in a world built for "neurotypicals". We try our best to compensate that you don't understand us or the stuff that is elamentory(, dear Watson). But you call us freaks, retards, stupid, disabled and it is so frustrating that no matter how it is clearly you that are the undeveloped ones and you dare to disrespect us. You should re evaluate yourself. And see that you are hurting human beings.
