Winnie The Pooh: Blood and Honey did exceptionally well, despite being talked down on by movie critics. The movie draws admiration from the childhood story, Winnie-The-Pooh, by A.A Miline and illustrator, E.H Shephard. However, there’s a dark twist to it. Winnie the Pooh and Piglet become erratic after Christopher Robin leaves them behind.
Their distress drives them to become serial killers. Along their path to destruction, they taunt a group of college kids who come to visit the Hundred Acre Wood. Initially, the movie was supposed to stay in theaters for a day. But due to the high demand of viewers, they extended it to a week.
The weekend of its release, Winnie The Pooh: Blood and Honey earned $750K. Eventually, the horror film amassed $1.58 million. This information is outstanding, considering that Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey was made on a budget of only $100K.
Rhys Frake-Waterfield, the film’s writer/director/producer, announced that there could be a sequel. He’s also hoping to add dark twists to other children’s stories like Bambi, which he is just producing, and Peter Pan. Winnie the Pooh: Love and Honey is said to be part of a multi-film universe.
