The brand new one-sheet features a killer Winnie the Pooh and his deadly buddy Piglet getting ready to unleash some violent mayhem. I bet that’s not something you ever expected to see on screens.
Winne the Pooh: Blood and Honey went mega-viral after it first hit the internet, with online responses ranging from pure excitement to complete outrage. All of this word of mouth and controversy has only made us more psyched to see how this outrageous new slasher film turns out.
Rhys Frake-Waterfield is the filmmaker behind Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey, and we recently had the opportunity to pick his brains about the movie. The hotly anticipated new title is a co-production between Jagged Edge Productions and ITN Studios. Frake-Waterfield is producing alongside Scott Jeffrey. Stuart Alson of ITN is the executive producer, and the cast includes Amber Doig-Thorne, Maria Taylor and Danielle Scott.

Winnie the Pooh is a famous fictional teddy bear first created by author AA Milne and illustrator EH Shepard. Pooh would be turned into a household name in 1961 when Walt Disney Productions began making the character into films. The character went into the public domain earlier this year, and now the bear is back and up to no good whatsoever.
