Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey Images Tease Winnie the Pooh Slasher Film and Its Nightmare Fuel
A new horror film has just been announced along with some images that have many fans losing it. The film Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey is a horror re-imagining of the classic children’s story created by Alan Alexander Milne.
The indie horror film is set to be the directorial debut of Rhys Frake-Waterfield and although plot details are slim, this version of the film will see a monstrous re-imagining of Pooh and Piglet who are abandoned by Christopher Robin that leads them on a murderous rampage.
The film is set to star Amber Doig-Thorne, Maria Taylor, and Danielle Scott. The images released are guaranteed to give you nightmares and give resemblance to some popular horror films such as The Strangers, The Purge, and Vacancy mostly judging by the masked Pooh and Piglet, the home invasion vibe, and the grotesque setting of the film that is teased in the images.
Having been brought to prominence by Milne’s The House at Pooh Corner, Walt Disney Productions’ films based on the character have made Winnie the Pooh a pop-culture staple that has led to many adaptations in animation, film, and books. The most recent was the 2018 live-action film Christopher Robin which starred Ewan McGregor alongside the honey-loving Pooh bear.
Although not many iterations of children’s properties have been adapted into horror, Winnie the Pooh is one that actually holds ground. Most of the characters in Winnie the Pooh always seem to resemble a mental health disorder. With Pooh’s overeating, Piglett’s anxiety, Tigger’s apparent ADHD, and Eeyore’s major depressive disorder all seemingly apparent throughout the stories, this is sure to be an adaptation worth keeping your eye on.
