There have been a lot of excellent horror films in 2022, but Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey is one of the future slashers that has lovers of the genre intrigued all across the world. The terrifying adaptation of A.A. Milne’s well-known children’s tale is on the way, and a streaming release in 2022 is still conceivable before the end of the year. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fathom Events will only play Blood and Honey theatrically in the US on February 15, 2023, for one day only.
Additionally, the movie will be seen in theatres in Canada, Mexico, and the United Kingdom. The movie has been picked up by Altitude for the UK, Cinemax for “a few hundred” cinemas in Mexico, and Cineplex for theatres in Canada. Additionally, a great number of undiscovered nations all over the world intend to release this horror film in theatres. The Winnie-the-Pooh IP’s bloody-demon offspring, Blood and Honey, will enter the public domain in January 2022. The horror community has gone wild over the Rhys Frake-Waterfield video, which depicts a humanoid Pooh Bear and Piglet butchering the Hundred Acre Woods after Christopher Robin abandoned them.
This previous summer’s trailer did nothing to lessen the fervent expectation for this fairy tale-turned-hellish-nightmare. It has been hysterically upsetting to see beloved Disney characters commit atrocities like drowning a woman in a hot tub, but that is what makes this movie oddly fascinating. There was a time when we believed that Disney’s live-action Christopher Robin was the darkest this brand would ever get. Not the Winnie-the-Pooh of your youth, this. Even while he still enjoys honey, this bear’s bloodlust is what will draw audiences to the theatres this time around. It’s amusing that Valentine’s Day falls one day after the US theatrical release date.
If Blood and Honey’s success wasn’t enough to make horror fans salivate, Frake-Waterfield is also developing Peter Pan: Neverland Nightmare, a second horror adaptation of the classic children’s tale. While we wait to learn if the movie will be available on video on demand before its one-day-only Fathom Events theatrical run on February 15, 2023, this is just the start of Pooh’s carnage.
