Psychological-thriller The Babadook, starring Essie Davis, has begun filming in South Australia.
It marks the debut feature film from writer/director Jennifer Kent and follows a single mother who battles with her son's fear of a monster lurking in the house, only to discover a sinister presence all around her.
As well as Davis (Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries; The Slap; cloudstreet), the film also stars Daniel Henshall (Snowtown), Hayley McElhinney, Ben Winspear and six-year-old Noah Wiseman. In a statement, Davis said she was ready to tackle the complex role.
"It's such a complex, intense and intriguing character to be playing and a lot of responsibility to carry a film like this, but I've known director Jennifer Kent for 20 years now so I'm totally ready to surrender and take the plunge with her into this incredible and terrifying world."
