Winnie the Pooh Horror Movie Is Here to Ruin Your Childhood

The famous Winnie the Pooh family IP is now in the public domain, and a team of filmmakers set out to create a horror movie called – wait for it – Blood and Honey.

The film follows Pooh and Piglet “as they go wild after Christopher Robin abandons them”. The film is directed by Rhys Frake-Waterfield, and the first images are horrifying.

Blood and Honey hails from UK-based Jagged Edge Productions, which previously made the sinister Humpty Dumpty film –The Curse of Humpty Dumpty–and Easter Bunny Massacre.

Blood and Honey probably wouldn’t have been approved under Disney’s scrutiny, but Winnie the Pooh entered the public domain in early 2022. This allowed creators to do with it as they wished, as long as their creations do not. borrow story and character elements from Disney. Pinocchio also recently entered the public domain, and Guillermo del Toro is making a spooky spin on it for Netflix.

Blood and Honey filmed for 10 days in England and finished production earlier in May. Waterfield, the director, said Variety that the production team will speed up the editing process and hopefully release the film as soon as possible to capitalize on the hype surrounding the shocking first footage.

In the story, Christopher Robin leaves for college, abandoning Winnie and Piglet. Christopher Robin doesn’t feed Pooh and Piglet so they go wild, Waterfield said.

“They have returned to their animal roots. They are no longer tame: they are like a bear and a vicious pig who want to wander around and try to find prey,” he said.

Oh brother.
