Our childhoods are quivering, our little hearts are shaking and our mouths are gasping open. Our favorite rumbly, honey loving, sweet voiced and pleasant natured Winnie the Pooh has gone rogue and turned killer in the new Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey. What’s scarier, the little pinky pig Piglet, the same stuttering best friend of Pooh is game with all this.
Not without reason, tho. In the upcoming horror retelling of the iconic kids’ story, Winnie the Pooh and Piglet are dealing with serious(read very serious) abandonment issues after their friend Christopher Robin decides to go to college. Their coping mechanism is still a bit questionable, though. Going rogue, both children’s favorites are finding their roots. Going carnal and serial killer, you know.
The movie is not by Disney, and some will find that incredibly relieving. But Disney did lose the exclusive right to the characters who have now entered the public domain. This means anyone is free to reinvent and retell the story of Winnie the Pooh and his friends. This gory version of blank-eyed Pooh and knife welding Piglet is created by Rhys Frake-Waterfield Jagged Edge Productions.
If you’re wondering just how scary these once-loved characters can get, consider this: in the poster, Pooh smiles devilishly and looks nothing like our yellow bear wearing a crop top. With a sledgehammer in his hand, Winnie the Pooh promises murder. Below him is Piglet, with a knife in his hand, looking at us with an intense satanic glare.
Many have, unsurprisingly, admitted that their childhood is ruined. Others, though, cannot wait to watch this horrific recreation of our favorite cartoon characters.
The release date for Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey isn’t out yet. All we can infer is that Pooh has given up honey for blood, and we must run for our lives!
