Blood, Guts and Laughs: Winnie the Pooh blood and honey Review
You may think Winnie the Pooh is a sweet and innocent bear who likes nothing more than honey and his pals. Well, you’re wrong. Dead wrong. In this twisted horror comedy, Pooh and Piglet have turned into savage and hungry beasts in Winnie the Pooh blood and honey after Christopher Robin ditched them for college. They go on a bloody spree as they hunt for a new snack, making a nightmare out of a group of young women who are staying in a cabin near the Hundred Acre Wood. Do you remember your parents reading you this version of the story?
This movie is a horror retelling of the famous legend of Winnie the Pooh, based on the books by A. A. Milne and E. H. Shepard. It was written and directed by Rhys Frake-Waterfield, who made his debut with this film. It stars Craig David Dowsett as Winnie the Pooh, Chris Cordell as Piglet, Amber Doig-Thorne as Alice, Nikolai Leon as Christopher Robin, Maria Taylor as Maria, Natasha Rose Mills as Jessica, and Danielle Ronald as Zoe.
This movie is not for the faint of heart or the easily offended. It is a dark comedy that pokes fun at the childhood icon of Winnie the Pooh and turns him into a savage killer. The movie is full of gore, violence, and profanity, but also has some hilarious moments that will make you laugh out loud.
The movie does not take itself too seriously and knows how to balance the horror and comedy elements. The actors do a tolerable job of delivering their lines with sarcasm and wit, especially Amber Doig-Thorne as Alice, who is the leader of the group of women and has some of the best one-liners in the movie.
The movie also has some creative kills and scenes that will make you cringe and chuckle at the same time. For example, there is a scene where piglet eats someone’s face or another scene where Piglet uses his tail as a weapon to stab someone in the eye.
The movie also pays homage to some classic horror movies, such as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Evil Dead, and The Shining. There are references and nods to these movies throughout the film, such as the use of chainsaws, axes, and blood splatters.
This movie is not perfect and has some flaws that may affect your enjoyment of it. For one thing, the movie has a low budget and production value, which shows in some aspects of the film. The costumes and masks of Pooh and Piglet look cheap, like a Halloween mask from walmart, and sometimes you can see the actors’ faces underneath them. The CGI effects are also poorly done and look unrealistic. Why the hell did they make piglet a wart hog?.
The movie also lacks a coherent story and character development. The plot is very thin and simple, and there is not much explanation or motivation for why Pooh and Piglet became killers. The characters are also very stereotypical and shallow, such as the slutty girl, the nerdy girl, the jock boy, etc. They do not have much personality or depth, and you do not care much about them or their fate.
The movie also relies too much on shock value and gross-out humor, which may not appeal to everyone. Some of the jokes are very crude and vulgar, such as jokes about sex, drugs, bodily fluids, etc. Some of the scenes are also very disturbing and graphic, such as scenes of cannibalism, torture, mutilation, etc.
Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey is a horror comedy that will make you laugh and scream and ask your self “why am i watching this?.” It is a twisted parody of Winnie the Pooh that turns him into a murderous maniac. It is not for everyone’s taste, but if you like gore, violence, profanity, and dark humor, you may enjoy this horror movie.
I give it 3 out of 5 stars for its originality, creativity, humor, and entertainment value.
