This Dr. Seuss Babadook Parody Is Terrifying

If you have even an ounce of your childhood happiness invested in the world of Dr Seuss and his Cat in the Hat, for the love of goodness turn away from this article.

Right now.

The fright-loving Youtubers of the Horror Report channel have cooked up a wonderfully sinister parody by mixing the chilling story of The Babadook (available on Blu-ray, DVD and digital platforms from 16 February) with the ill-fated 2003 film adaptation of Dr Seuss's The Cat in the Hat.

Having not seen Mike Myers' comedy caper, we're struggling to tell where the childish story ends and the nerve shredding horror of the Australian film begins. 

Right, who fancies knocking up a mix of James and the Giant Peach and The Ring?
