Big Hero 6
Briskly-paced, action-packed, and often touching. Big Hero 6's powerful storyline is an incredible motivator for kids and adults to go into computer science.
A descent into madness for both the characters and the audience. The Babadook had me questioning my own sanity. Can't recall any other horror quite as effective.
