The acclaimed Australian horror flick is planned for Blu-ray in April.
As previously reported, Shout Factory will be releasing 'The Babadook' on Blu-ray on April 14.
A Special Edition Blu-ray will also be available on the same date.
Six years after the violent death of her husband, Amelia (Essie Davis) is at a loss. She struggles to discipline her 'out of control' 6 year-old, Samuel (Noah Wiseman), a son she finds impossible to love. Samuel's dreams are plagued by a monster he believes is coming to kill them both.
When a disturbing storybook called 'The Babadook' turns up at their house, Samuel is convinced that the Babadook is the creature he's been dreaming about. His hallucinations spiral out of control, he becomes more unpredictable and violent. Amelia, genuinely frightened by her son's behaviour, is forced to medicate him.
But when Amelia begins to see glimpses of a sinister presence all around her, it slowly dawns on her that the thing Samuel has been warning her about may be real.
Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements will include cast and crew interviews and a look behind-the-scenes of the making of the film, and theatrical trailers.
The Special Edition will add director Jennifer Kent's short film MONSTER, deleted scenes, and director-approved limited run "pop-up book" slipcover packaging.
