‘Is nothing sacred?’ Winnie the Pooh fans have had mixed reactions to horror movies

Fans have both praised and criticized the concept of the upcoming horror film. Winnie Pooh: blood and honey.

The usually cuddly child character is darkly reimagined in Rhys Frake-Waterfield’s brutal feature film.

Instead of the cheerful looking Winnie the Pooh wearing a bright red t-shirt that many will be familiar with, this version of the animated bear has a dark agenda and wears a plaid shirt with suspenders.

The classic children’s story character, created by AA Milne, entered the public domain earlier this year. This means that Pooh and his friend Piglet can be used without permission from the author’s estate and can be interpreted in any creative work.

According to Frake-Waterfield, who wrote, directed and co-produced the film, the plot explores what Winnie the Pooh and Piglet are up to after their human friend Christopher Robin leaves college.

“Christopher Robin is being pulled away from them and he’s not [given] eat them,” he explained diversity. “That made life pretty difficult for Pooh and Piglet.”

“Because they’ve had to fend for themselves so much, they’ve essentially become feral…they’re not tame anymore: they’re like a vicious bear and pig running around trying to find prey.”

The cast includes Craig David-Dowsett as Winnie and Chris Cordell as Piglet.

Ever since stills from the film were released online, people have been sharing their take on this nightmarish interpretation. Some have celebrated the character being released from Disney copyright and made available for general use.

“Winnie the Pooh is being made into an R-rated horror film. Yes, really. That’s why I love the public eye,” one supporter tweeted.

However, others are not so enthusiastic about this drastic change.

“In the entertainment industry, not everything needs to be manipulated,” exclaimed a skeptical Twitter user. “Turn Winnie the Pooh into a horror movie??? Is nothing sacred????”

“WHO WAS WATCHING/READING WINNIE THE POOH AS A CHILD AND THOUGHT, ‘You know what? This is going to be a riveting horror movie one day?!” asked another.

Meanwhile, another Pooh fan claimed that acting violently just goes against the character’s nature.

They wrote, “Pooh Bear wouldn’t kill anyone, he’s two apples tall and he loves honey.”
