Winnie The Pooh Horror Movie Director Breaks Silence On Disturbing Plot, It Gets Worse

Winnie The Pooh Horror Movie Director Breaks Silence On Disturbing Plot, It Gets Worse

It’s been a hard one to miss. This week, a Winnie the Pooh inspired horror movie has taken the internet by storm thanks to its thoroughly disturbing interpretation of our fuzzy childhood friends from the Hundred Acre Wood.


In January, Winnie the Pooh entered the public domain which means that Disney no longer owns the sole rights. Director Rhys Waterfield has seized that opportunity, creating Winnie the Pooh: Blood And Honey. Twisted stills of men in horrifying Pooh and Piglet masks sent shuddering shockwaves through the internet this week and now, the director is finally opening up about what the disturbing film has in store.

In need of a palette cleanser? Disney Dreamlight Valley is full of classic wholesome Disney characters. Take a look at the trailer below.



Before now, details were practically non-existent. Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey’s IMDB page simply described the film as a “horror retelling of the famous legend of Winnie the Pooh.” Now that the images have gone well and truly viral, Waterfield sat down with Variety to explain what the film is about. 

Pooh and Piglet’s villainous turn kicks off when Christopher Robin moves away to college, sending the duo “on a rampage”.

“Christopher Robin is pulled away from them and he’s not [given] them food. It’s made Pooh and Piglet’s life quite difficult,” Waterfield said. “Because they’ve had to fend for themselves so much, they’ve essentially become feral, so they’ve gone back to their animal roots. They’re no longer tame: they’re like a vicious bear and pig who want to go around and try and find prey.”


Regarding that now-infamous still of Pooh and Piglet lurking behind a woman in a hot tub, Wakefield said, “She’s having a good time and then Pooh and Piglet appear behind her, chloroform her, take her out of the jacuzzi and then kind of drive a car over her head.” Childhood destroyed.

Personally, I’m going to stay far away from this cursed film but if you’re desperate to see it, there’s good news. Thanks to the online attention, Waterfield says the team is “getting it through post production as fast as we can.” Oh bother.
