The director talked about the plot of the horror movie about Winnie the Pooh. Rice Waterfield’s director of the horror “Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey” told the British version of Metro about the reason for shooting the film in this “adult” film genre, and it was based on Alan Milne’s children’s book.
The work was created in 1926 and entered the “public domain” in January of this year under copyright law. Therefore, the Waterfield iconic child character was inspired by the opportunity to be part of his favorite movie genre and thus diversify the horror theme.
According to the director, he was “so annoyed” with movies with the same monster – Warwolves, Zombies, Vampires, Ghosts – that it already “started to get annoyed.”
“We got the news (about the book going public), and we thought: ‘Here we can do something really creative and fun. And Winnie the Pooh opens up a lot of possibilities and really great things. From that moment on, I was like, “Wait, I have to film this,” Waterfield explained, emphasizing that using the book’s characters allows them to give “special motivation for behavior” within the genre.
So, the director said that according to the plot of the film, Christopher Robin, as a child, used to feed Winnie the Pooh, Piglet and York, but when he grew up, he kept them hungry.
“It really changed them a lot when they were growing up. And they became unbalanced, wild animals that became really sad and distorted. It changed their perception so much that they were just completely abnormal.” <...> They just want to go everywhere and suffer a lot, “he explained.
Waterfield added that for years when there was nothing to eat in the woods, Winnie the Pooh and Piglet “made a tough decision” and ate Yor.
