Billie Eilish is known for being unique with her music videos and artistic choices 

She’s an award-winning artist with a couple of chart topping songs under her belt. Even though Billie Eilish is still a teenager, she’s made her mark in the music industry with her unique voice and music. 

That sound especially comes through with songs and music videos like “Bury a Friend” and “You Should See Me in a Crown.” However, Billie Eilish’s creepy music doesn’t come out of thin air. For one interview, the artist shared her love for horror movies and one thriller in particular. 

The ‘Bad Guy’ artists’ favorite movie growing up was ‘The Babadook’

During one interview with Pose star, Billy Porter, the artist shared what her favorite movies were growing up. Even though she was young while watching these films, she always loved “scary stuff,” including one horror movie from 2014.

“I always loved scary stuff,” Billie Eilish said, according to Insider. “I loved The Babadook, I liked We Need to Talk About Kevin. We loved Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.”

This movie came as a bit of surprise to fans because of her age and because of its content. The Babadook, as a psychological thriller, tells the story of one family tormented by a demon living in their house. The main character, a mom dealing with the loss of her husband, quickly discovers this presence is all around her.
