The (Gay) Babadook
Dir. Jennifer Kent
Australia 2014 (95:00)

So, the Babadook is gay! Maybe. Late last year, a Tumblr thread floated the theory that the 2014 Australian horror film, specifically its eponymous monster, was a trove of queer subtext. When Netflix added The Babadook to its "LGBT Movies" list, the internet latched onto the endearing misdirection, giving birth to the latest meme sensation: Gay Babadook. On the heels of Pride Month, it seems only appropriate to celebrate the newly christened queer icon. Join us at TIFF Bell Lightbox and get Babashook!
