‘Winnie the Pooh: Honey and Blood’

Rewrite this content The days of adventure and fun have come to an end, Pooh and Piglet, forgotten and abandoned by Christopher Robin have been left to fend for themselves. Over time they have gone wild, and in a blood frenzy, they will terrorize a group of young women isolated in a remote cabin.Winnie the Pooh, or Winnie the Pooh as we know him in Mexico, is one of the best-known children’s literature, film and television figures in the world. Yet for almost 100 years he was in the clutches of Disney, until finally in 2021, this character created by A.A Milne it became public domain. It was so in Jagged Edge Productions they went to work to create Winnie the Pooh: Honey and Blood, a horror film that reinvents the cuddly bear as a ruthless killer. The idea sounds frankly like a prank you come up with with your friends at the party, but no one would think it could become a reality. That didn’t stop the director and writer Rhys Frake-Waterfield to take the concept to the cinema and make a film that can captivate anyone with its high level of absurdity.And that’s what’s fantastic about Winnie the Pooh: Honey and Blood, is a film that is aware of what it is, a very low-budget production with many limitations that Frake-Waterfield transforms into virtues. The visuals of him are dirty, the performances are terrible, the story is simple, the special effects are cheap, but these ‘failures’ together serve his purpose of creating a B-movie that takes inspiration from him. .In short, whoever is expecting a ‘serious’ horror movie is not going to find it, whoever believes that everything that happens in Winnie the Pooh: Honey and Blood it’s funny you are unintentionally underestimating the skills of the director and his team. Everyone, absolutely all of them were aware of what kind of movie they were making. It is a very violent film that seeks nothing more than to give you a good time at the cinema and maybe it will scare you.But what I found most interesting Winnie the Pooh: Honey and Blood It is that as violent and unpleasant as it becomes, Frake-Waterfield never seeks to make fun of Winnie the Pooh or everything that surrounds him. In fact, the effectiveness of the concept is that the script starts from the same values ​​that Milne’s work wanted to convey, but Frake-Waterfield takes them to a negative extreme. So this movie is far from being a parody to offend Winnie the Pooh fans, rather it is a reinterpretation of Milne’s book that offers a more aggressive perspective of his characters.It is remarkable that Winnie the Pooh: Honey and Blood it’s made by people who actually have fun making and love to watch these kind of unusual and tacky movies. Maybe not all the public feel attracted to them or maybe they want to stay with the image they have of Pooh. But for those who are open to this cinema and the concept, they will be able to gather their friends, go to the cinema and laugh every time Pooh and Piglet do something ruthless.
