Immortal Masks shares a closer look at the creepy anthropomorphic masks featured in the upcoming slasher, Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey.
New images provide a closer look at the horrifying masks used in Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey. Written and directed by Rhys Frake-Waterfield, the upcoming horror flick will put a murderous spin on the classic children’s character created by A. A. Milne. Despite being an independent production, the project has received an unexpected level of interest from the general public, resulting in a concerted effort to see the film released by early 2023.
Filming in England for just ten days, production on the Winnie the Pooh horror movie officially wrapped in May. Releasing the first stills shortly afterward, which captured the public’s imagination, Waterfield confessed that he hadn’t anticipated the “crazy” level of attention the project had since received and warned audiences not to expect a Hollywood-level blockbuster. Focusing on a Pooh and Piglet who have become feral after Christopher Robin abandons them for college, the film will find them launching into a murderous rampage after their former human friend comes to introduce them to his wife.
Providing another closer look at the upcoming slasher, the original designers of the mask, Immortal Masks, shared some close-up images of the masks worn in Blood and Honey. The innocently branded Honey Bear mask is created using silicone and features a disturbingly vacant expression, completed by black eyes, wrinkled skin, and a full set of fangs. Grotesquely covered in blood, the preview suggests that this Winnie the Pooh survives on a diet of more than just honey.
While stills from the film suggested some hefty gore, the bloodied yellow mask could indicate that there will be even more than previously anticipated. Though other images also depict Pooh and Piglet working as a team, it appears that the characters’ similarities to their Disney counterparts end there. Touted as feral and hell-bent on murdering several college girls in classic slasher style, the blood on Pooh’s face also supports Waterfield’s claim that he and Piglet have cannibalized the beloved donkey, Eeyore.
Though a release date for the new feature has yet to be confirmed, an avid audience is waiting to watch when it arrives. While Waterfield may, understandably, feel a sense of urgency to complete the film while interest is at an all-time high, his dark concept for the classic children’s characters seems to have captured the public’s imagination in a way that is rarely seen. With the masks featured in Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey available to purchase from Immortal Masks, Waterfield could enjoy a few real-life sightings of his horrifying characters by Halloween.
