Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey – Check out the images and details from the new indie horror movie

Winnie the Pooh has entered the public domain, so what could you do that is a little bit different from the usual Disney fare? Why, turn it into a low-budget slasher movie of course!

The film will see Pooh and Piglet as the main villains…going on a rampage after being abandoned by a college-bound Christopher Robin. Christopher Robin is pulled away from them, and he’s not given them food, it’s made Pooh and Piglet’s life quite difficult.

Because they’ve had to fend for themselves so much, they’ve essentially become feral. So they’ve gone back to their animal roots. They’re no longer tame: they’re like a vicious bear and pig who want to go around and try and find prey.

Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey in post-production from writer/director Rhys Frake-Waterfield and stars Amber Doig-Thorne, Maria Taylor and Danielle Scott. Dread Central shared these images from the project.

Waterfield spoke to Variety about the project.

When you try and do a film like this, and it’s a really wacky concept, it’s very easy to go down a route where nothing is scary and it’s just really ridiculous and really, like, stupid. And we wanted to go between the two.

No one is going to mistake this for Disney. When you see the cover for this and you see the trailers and the stills and all that, there’s no way anyone is going to think this is a child’s version of it.

The film was shot in 10 days in England, not far from Ashdown Forest, the inspiration for A.A. Milne’s imaginary Hundred Acre Wood in the “Winnie the Pooh” stories.

Jagged Edge Productions, which Waterfield runs with co-producer Scott Jeffrey, made the film, and ITN Studios have already signed on to distribute it. There is currently no release date.
