Creating the Right Atmosphere

The key to a successful Babadook party is creating the right atmosphere. To achieve this, you’ll need to decorate your space with items that reflect the movie’s eerie and unsettling tone. Start by using a color scheme of black, white, and gray – the colors of the Babadook himself. You can also use red accents to represent the blood that appears in the movie.

Hang black streamers and cobwebs from the ceiling to create a spooky ambiance. Use black candles and dim lighting to set the mood. You can also display posters and stills from the movie on the walls to give your guests a visual reminder of the theme.

Food and Drinks

Creepy Cuisine

For your Babadook party, serve food and drinks that are both delicious and creepy. Start with a black and white dessert bar featuring cookies, cupcakes, and candies. You can also serve a “blood” punch made with red fruit juice and sparkling water.

For savory options, consider serving black bean dip, squid ink pasta, and black olive tapenade. You can also create a charcuterie board featuring blackened meats and cheeses. Don’t forget to label your food with creepy names like “Babadook Bites” and “Monster Meatballs”.


Movie Screening

No Babadook party is complete without a screening of the movie. Set up a viewing area with comfortable seating and a large screen. Encourage your guests to dress up as their favorite characters from the movie and provide props like top hats and red capes for photo opportunities.

Horror Trivia

Test your guests’ horror knowledge with a Babadook-themed trivia game. Create questions about the movie and other horror films and award prizes to the winners. You can also play a game of “Pin the Hat on the Babadook” or have a costume contest.


With these tips from The Heat Producer and Katie Dippold, you’re ready to throw the ultimate Babadook party. Remember to create the right atmosphere with decorations, serve creepy cuisine, and plan fun activities for your guests. With a little creativity, you can make your party a spooky success.
