A success on the international festival circuit, The Babadook had its world premiere at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival.

The film, which was made for a modest $2 million, was released in Australia in May 2014 in just 13 theaters after major cinema chains failed to board.

It then achieved great success and commercial success in France, where it made more money in five days there than it did in its entire run in Australia.

The film quickly secured global distribution rights and became a hit around the world. It is now considered one of the greatest horror films of the modern era.
