It has been in the news considerably recently, and here comes confirmation that Winnie-The- Pooh: Blood and Honey will get a UK cinema release following its premiere at Frightfest Glasgow.
Written and directed by Rhys Frake-Waterfield (Firenado), and filmed in the very forest the original stories were inspired by in Sussex, Winnie-The- Pooh: Blood and Honey has everything you wouldn’t expect in a Pooh bear story – college girls on vacation, hot tub slayings, axe attacks, and thoroughly brutal, beastly behaviour from Winnie and his woodland chums.
During childhood, Christopher Robin befriended Winnie-the-Pooh, Piglet and their friends, played games and fed them. But as he grew older, the visits stopped, leaving them increasingly hungry and desperate, eyeing Eeyore as food. Now Christopher has returned to the forest with his new wife hoping to introduce her to his old friends. But it sends Pooh and Piglet on a murderous scavenger hunt for human flesh when they antagonise a group of college girls on a rural cabin vacation. Will Christopher still get Pooh back on the right track?
The film will land in UK and Irish cinemas on 10th March with a home release set for the spring.
Here’s the official trailer.
