If you go down to the woods today, you’re sure of a nasty surprise… Yes, it’s Winnie-the-Pooh – the slasher movie!
Truly the stuff of nightmares, this micro-budget enterprise sees Pooh and Piglet turn feral after Christopher Robin abandons them to go to college.
Following a harsh winter, where they are forced to kill and eat Eeyore to survive, our no-longer-cuddly duo vow to wreak bloodthirsty vengeance on humankind.
How, you may wonder, did this abomination come to light?
When A.A. Milne’s classic came out of copyright last year, debut writer/director Rhys Frake-Waterfield leapt into the breach.
Already grossing over $3million worldwide, it cost less than $100,000 to make… and it shows. Wobbling through the woods, Pooh and Piglet (Craig David Dowsett and Chris Cordell) are obviously men in grinning rubber masks.

Less amusing is the splattersome violence they exact, largely against women. The production design is shoddy, the directing incoherent.
Thankfully the story gets sick of itself and stops abruptly at 84 minutes.
