Winnie The Pooh: Blood and Honey 2 Is Officially in the Works

Get ready for more nightmares, ‘Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey 2′ is on the way.

Having not yet seen a general theatrical release, it looks like the controversial horror movie Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey is getting a sequel. Although it may not be too surprising for a horror movie that has been getting a lot of attention to gain a sequel this early on, the news still came as a surprise to fans of the dark take on the bear from the Hundred Acre Wood. On Monday, the official Twitter account of Blood and Honey shared a simple image of the movie title with a bloody number 2 dominating the picture, as well as the tag, “Friends will gather…To take revenge.”

Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey is a slasher film based on the Winnie-the-Pooh books by A. A. Milne and E. H. Shepard. It follows the classic children’s characters after they have grown feral and murderous after being abandoned by their human friend Christopher Robin when he left for college. In true slasher movie fashion, the characters terrorize a group of friends who rented a cabin in the Hundred Acre Woods, picking them off one by one.

Blood and Honey was just one of the many low-budget horror movies to take the world by storm in 2022. After years of flashy, big-budget-low-scares horror fairs from some of the bigger studios threatened to dumb down the horror genre, the Covid-pandemic seemed to lead the genre back to its roots – dark, gory practical-effects driven stories that do a lot of relatively small budget. The film initially gained attention when it released a trailer depicting horrifying versions of classic children’s characters Pooh and Piglet setting out on a murderous rampage.

Thanks to the original stories of Winnie the Pooh having fallen into the public domain, the characters have become fair game for anyone to use in their own interpretations, and filmmaker Rhys Frake-Waterfield certainly didn’t hold back in his vision for what became of the loveable bear. While the movie is set to get a new theatrical run this February, it seems that more Blood and Honey is on the cards in the near future.

Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey is written and directed by Rhys Frake-Waterfield in his feature film directorial debut. He is expected to return for the sequel, as are Nikolai Leon and Craig David Dowsett, who play Christopher Robin and Winnie-the-Pooh respectively. Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey also stars Chris Cordell, Maria Taylor, Natasha Rose Mills, Amber Doig-Thorne, and Danielle Ronald.

Blood and Honey’s Creator Has Ideas for More Public Domain Horror Stories

While it seems that Frake-Waterfield is ready to milk his Winnie the Pooh horror based on its viral popularity and the quickly announced sequel, the filmmaker previously revealed that it won’t be the only public domain work that will be getting the genre-bending treatment. He previously said:

“Essentially we’ve been kind of doing that for the last like year now. Like with you know like Humpty Dumpty and things like that and there was there was other ideas we had in mind. For example like Thor, the the Norse God isn’t the property of Marvel so we could do kind of our own interpretation of that if we wanted. It didn’t have the same like ring as Winnie did so we went on Winnie and done that. We’ve got loads of other ones planned as well so like we’re doing a Peter Pan one.”

While the desecration of childhood characters may not be for everyone, there is certainly a vast niche to be plundered…or perhaps that should be slaughtered. Either way, Blood and Honey has tapped into what seems like a new wave of ultra-violent, nasty horror movies such as Terrifier 2 that will rival any “video nasty” of the past and then some.

Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey will hit theaters on February 15. Stay tuned to fantacytube for any future updates on the sequel.
