If You Give a Mouse a Cookie Remade as a Single-Take Horror Short Might Ruin Your Childhood Forever


I was only recently made aware of the children’s book If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, in which an increasingly demanding mouse makes like the conservative stereotype of a welfare recipient, and just keeps requesting more and more free handouts after you grant him one kind act of charity. I am informed by the person who shares my apartment that in context, it is in fact very cute.

Naturally, Some People on the Internet have made it into a horror movie short. Tales From the Crypt and Funny Games were the most obvious inspirations, but there are more to be found therein. In this mousetrap, the mouse traps you. And he wants more than just a glass of milk this time.

George Lucas was quite kind to your youth by comparison.
