Oh hey! Gay icon, horror masterwork, AACTA award winning film The Babadook finally gets its due with a maxed out, two hour long episode which discusses Jennifer Kent’s film in all the depth it requires. The main discussion was recorded after the internet deemed the top hat wearing figure that is the Babadook was a gay icon, so unfortunately we don’t touch on that too much – but, there is still a Ru Paul’s Drag Race clip though. As if talking about The Babadook longer than its own running time wasn’t enough, there’s a very short bonus discussion about Cate Shortland’s Berlin Syndrome.
The Polygon article on how the Babadook became a gay icon can be read here.
