The Grinch goes full horror in the trailer for The Mean One

We may be seeing the beginning of a new horror trend featuring classic kid’s stories becoming slasher movies. We have Winnie The Pooh: Blood And Honey and now we have the trailer for The Mean One, which sees Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch get his bloody revenge!

In the audacious new parody, The Mean One (Terrifier 2‘s David Howard Thornton) is a hairy, green-skinned grump in a Santa suit, living on a mountain high above the town of Newville, despising the holiday season. Young Cindy You-Know-Who (Krystle Martin), whose parents were butchered by The Mean One twenty Christmases earlier, is returning to town to seek closure… but when the Mean One launches a new reign of terror that threatens to destroy Christmas, Cindy finds a bold new purpose – trapping and killing the monster.

David Howard Thornton has been doing great things as Art the Clown in Terrifier 2.

Directed by Steven LaMorte with a script by Flip and Finn Kobler, the film also stars Krystle Martin, Chase Mullins, John Bigham, Erik Baker, Flip Kobler, and Amy Schumacher. A co-production between A Sleight of Hand Productions, Amy Rose Productions, and Kali Pictures, the feature is Produced by Schumacher, LaMorte, and Martine Melloul. Executive Producers are Jordan Rosner, Gato Scatena, and Zach Stampone.

Alex Williams, the manager of acquisitions at XYZ films, said “Aa a passionate fan of seasonal horror (and the ‘Terrifier’ franchise), ‘The Mean One’ is exactly the kind of film that lands on my personal ‘nice list.’ This movie is a stunningly great time with a ferociously subversive turn from David Howard Thornton — and XYZ Films is so proud to be bringing this soon-to-be iconic Christmas slasher to audiences this holiday season.”

We don’t have long to wait to see just how twisted this one will be as the film is due out on 9th December 2022.
