Shut The F*ck Up: ‘Samuel’ From ‘The Babadook’ (2014)

I usually have a pretty high tolerance when it comes to unruly, misbehaving, screaming kids.  I do, after all, have 3 nephews that I’ve experienced in my lifetime.  Oh sure, some might even say that Damien, the Devil’s child, is one of the brattiest kids ever.  But I’ve got news for you Damien.  There’s a kid who’s even more evil than you.  More annoying for sure.  And definitely more capable of making someone put a gun in their mouth.  Let’s meet Samuel from the 2014 horror movie, The Babadook!

Spoiler alerts coming for those who haven’t seen The Babadook.  Now, if Mister Babadook was in fact real – I would have loved to see him grab Samuel by the head and spin it around on his neck like a top.  A bit harsh you say?  Why don’t you try watching the above clip again.  I double dog dare you.  I guess in the grand scheme of things, the kid actor who played Samuel (Noah Wiseman) actually did do a good job because he was meant to assist throwing his mother Amelia (Essie Davis) into a psychological downward spiral.  Mission accomplished, Samuel!  And you made the audience want to never have children and made the guys want to wear three condoms when they have sex.  Now let’s end this with a nice, sweet, innocent picture of little Samuel to show he’s just like a regular kid.
