Someone Replaced Pennywise With The Cat In The Hat In The IT Trailer 401 it cat in the hatYouTube/But Without

The spine tingling trailer for IT has been re-imagined with The Cat In The Hat and it’s possibly even creepier than the remake itself…

The official trailer for the remake of Steven King’s IT dropped last week and is utterly horrifying – but perhaps they missed a trick in opting for the same old villain.

Pennywise does cut a terrifying figure, but Mike Myers’ cat is clearly up to the task of providing endless nightmares to children, as this fan-edit proves…

YouTube user, But Without, has created this hilarious yet alarming version, involving the giant, talking cat’s head superimposed over Pennywise and the results are ingenious.

The creepy cat appears in the iconic drain scene, which is just as traumatic involving a supposedly ‘innocent’ cat, as it is a sinister clown.

Other highlights from this unsettling piece of online mastery include a seriously creepy scene, where the Pennywise-cat hybrid appears inexplicably on a projector image…

My personal favourite – although it may leave me mentally scarred for life – is the ending when the cat menacingly legs it towards the boys with a look of twisted joy on his freaky face.

The whole thing is quite traumatic and might change the way you think about Dr Seuss or even cats in general…

Here’s the real IT trailer just to scare you further:

It certainly gives it a suitably disturbing edge. I can’t decide what’s worse…

For those who fancy scaring themselves silly, IT comes out on September 8th in UK cinemas.

You’ve had plenty of pre-warning…
