The viral, low-budget horror movie Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey is coming to theaters.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fathom Events announced that it will release director Rhys Frake-Waterfield’s slasher movie to theaters on February 15 across the U.S., with plans to showcase the film in the U.K., Canada, and Mexico.
Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey was created following the classic children’s book entering the public domain in January 2022. Based on A.A. Milne’s children’s books, Blood and Honey stars a feral Pooh and Piglet as they go on a murder spree in the hundred-acre woods.
The first teaser for the movie became a viral hit, and interest in the movie skyrocketed both for the violent take on the Pooh character, but also for the successful interpretation once the character hit the public domain.
The first trailer was released in August and you can check it out in the video below.
Director Frake-Waterfield is already planning a sequel to go along with the first movie, as well as another murderous take on a public domain children’s series, Peter Pan: Neverland Nightmare.
