Jennifer Kent's The Babadook rekindled our interest in contemporary horror after years of remakes and retreads. Its motifs have been used in films such as Lights out, His House and Under the Shadow.
If you like Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom, you might enjoy some films out of the eclectic mix it draws inspiration from - like Harold and Maude or Small Change.
