Here's How They Made the Incredible Book in The Babadook

When the director of The Exorcist says that he's seen the scariest film of all time, you should really sit up and take notice. And that's what William Friedkin said of Jennifer Kent's The Babadook - the story of a mother and her young child and a very difficult house guest.

One of the creepiest parts of the film has to do with a pop up book which mysteriously appears in the house and makes a real impression. Mainly because its really screwed up. The book in the film was a handmade creation thought up by director Jennifer Kent and realised by Alex Juhasz and a real-life version is currently in the works with a strictly limited run set to arrive in January 2015.

If you're curious about how the book actually came together, check out this making-of with Juhasz explaining the process of back and forth with Kent and feeling a bit sorry for his terrified creations.
