“The Babadook” is getting a Pride makeover.
IFC Midnight and Shout Factory have teamed up to release rainbow-themed slip covers for a limited-edition Blu-ray of “The Babadook.”
There are only 2,500 copies available. The LGBTQ Pride Blu-ray disc is available for purchase for $19.99. A portion of all proceeds in June will be donated to the Los Angeles LGBT Center.
To celebrate #PrideMonth, we’ve teamed up with @ShoutFactory for a limited edition of THE BABADOOK. Even better than this? A portion of all sales in June go to the @LALGBTCenter: https://t.co/EKEfW92wvA So yeah, we’re the screaming kid right now and we’re not sorry! pic.twitter.com/XjolmrX02i— IFC Midnight (@IFCMidnight) June 3, 2019
The 2014 Australian horror film, directed by Jennifer Kent, stars the Babadook, a top-hatted monster who plagues a single mother and her son.
The Babadook became an unexpected queer icon thanks to a meme in 2017 that jokingly suggested he was queer. The joke took off with plenty more memes and people dressing up as the Babadook at Pride events.
