One of the stars of Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey claims that the director and producer received death threats over the film.
Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey has generated a lot of chatter on the internet since it was announced last year. After the AA Milne characters were publicly available, it was open season on what could be done with Pooh, Piglet and company. And then writer/director Rhys Frake-Waterfield put the characters in a horror movie – although this has upset some fans. Oh, bother…
“I thought it would get some attention, but never in the way it has. It’s been in all the newspapers and magazines, all over the world…I thought it was kind of crazy, I just didn’t expect anything at all like that. It’s kind of crazy when Pooh is running around killing people.” Believe it or not, no, not everyone will see Blood and honeywhere Winnie and Piglet attempt to slaughter Christopher Robin and his companions after he returns to the Hundred Acre Wood. “The director and producer have had a lot of direct emails saying they should die, the worst thing you can imagine. They say ‘It’s an abomination!’. “People have said to me ‘you’re ruining our childhood dreams’. But no one “needs” to see it.”
Ronald thanked Blood and honey say haters “The haters have definitely made it what it is because they’re all talking about it.” Yes, Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey has been one of the most anticipated horror films of the year so far, even as a curiosity. Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey will soon be in theaters for haters and slasher fans alike he 15 February.
Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey arose when copyright expired on January 1, 2022, meaning that anyone could then make anything out of the properties: cartoons, musicals and, yes, even slasher films. Turning beloved Disney animated classics (or at least the properties they’re based on) into R-rated horror could prove to be a popular trend, as Frake-Waterfield has already announced Peter Pan: Neverland Nightmare and Bambi: The accounts–described asBambi about rabies”– on the blackboard.
