Winnie The Pooh Is Actually Being Made Into a Horror Movie

In 1926, author A.A. Milne introduced the world to Christopher Robin and his toy bear Winnie the Pooh — who lived in the Hundred Acre Wood with his friends and went on fun adventures. Winnie-the-Pooh was so popular that Milne wrote a second book in 1928 called The House at Pooh Corner. In 1961, The Walt Disney Company purchased certain rights to Winnie the Pooh from the estate of A.A. Milne. Since then, Winnie the Pooh has been featured in a number of television shows and movies and has become one of Disney’s most popular franchises.

While Disney’s versions of Winnie the Pooh are protected under copyright laws, the original Winnie the Pooh character is now a part of the public domain. That means that everyday people can take Winnie the Pooh and turn the story however they want it. One independent filmmaker is doing just that, and giving Winnie the Pooh a murderous streak. That’s right, Winnie the Pooh — the gentlest bear who just wants to live his life and snack on honey — is getting the horror movie treatment.

Independent filmmaker Rhys Frake-Waterfield is currently working on releasing his new film, Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey. Not much is known about the new film, with its IMDB page simply saying that it is a “horror retelling” of the story of the famous bear. Below are stills from the film that were released on the site Dread Central.

As you can see, the Winnie the Pooh seems to be a man in a creepy mask, along with a deranged Piglet/boar-type mask. Even though no real description is available, it looks like Pooh and his friend are targeting a group of young women who are in a cabin in the middle of nowhere. The film does not have a release date at this time, but we know that it will star Amber Doig-Thorne, Danielle Scott, Maria Taylor, Danielle Ronald, and May Kelly.

What do you think of Winnie the Pooh being turned into a horror movie?
