When one thinks of a Winnie-the-Pooh Horror Movie, one rarely expects it to make the list for worst of worsts. Unfortunately, that was exactly the fate of this slasher film.
Rhys Frake-Waterfield’s microbudget R-rated film follows Pooh and Piglet as they journey into a dark world filled with serial killers and deathtraps. Unfortunately, it has earned such low reviews on Rotten Tomatoes that it now ranks among the 100 Worst Films Of All.
Last year, when Winnie-the-Pooh and Piglet characters were made public domain, writer-director Rhys Frake-Waterfield saw an opportunity to turn Milne’s beloved tales into horror. As result, slasher film stars Amber Doig-Thorne, Maria Taylor, and Chris Cordell as murderous animal companions.
Christopher Robin (Nikolai Leon) and his wife Mary (Paula Coiz) return to Hundred Acre Wood for a reunion with their childhood friends. However, instead of finding peace and quiet they soon find themselves being pursued by Pooh and Piglet.
The movie also includes some humorous elements intended to mock low-budget horror movies, but these distract from the story at hand. Unfortunately, this bloated mess of bad ideas and poor execution has earned itself a place in Rotten Tomatoes’ top 100 Worst Films Of All Time list despite falling into its lowest tier.
Rotten Tomatoes recently released its list of 100 Worst Films Of All Time, and Winnie-the-Pooh Horror Movie is one of them. This microbudget R-rated horror film reimagines beloved stuffed animals by AA Milne as bloodthirsty serial killers.
After Christopher Robin (Nikolai Leon) abandons Pooh and Piglet for school, they turn against humanity to seek revenge. These bloodthirsty creatures leave a trail of dead bodies behind them.
Blood and Honey has many shortcomings, but perhaps the worst of all is that it feels like a throwback to an era when films could be made and sold purely on their graphic imagery. As such, Blood and Honey proves to be an uninspiring watch.

Winnie-the-Pooh Horror Movie joins an extensive list of films that are considered among Rotten Tomatoes’ worst. This list includes titles like One Missed Call, Jaws The Revenge and Roommate In.
In the movie, Winnie-the-Pooh and Piglet become vicious killers after Christopher Robin leaves them behind to attend college. They wreak havoc on their beloved donkey Eeyore by eating him alive; unfortunately for them both!
Pooh and Piglet’s wild antics take an unsettling turn when a group of university students rents a cabin in the woods to work through trauma, only to become the prey for their murderous teddy bear companions.
Director Rhys Frake-Waterfield attempts to make a Winnie-the-Pooh horror film, but it falls flat. The script is empty, characters are uninteresting and there are too many spoof elements that distract from the main plotline.
Winnie-the-Pooh Horror Movie is an insipid, mindless horror film that takes a beloved children’s story and turns it into a slasher flick.
One of the most inept things I’ve seen recently. Director Rhys Frake-Waterfield made this on a tight budget, yet somehow managed to turn a beloved character into an outrageous slasher movie.
Pooh and Piglet have been terrorizing a cabin in the woods, killing innocent people. Five years ago, Christopher Robin (Nikolai Leon) and his wife Mary (Paula Coiz) were attacked by these two anthropomorphic monsters.
It’s Just Bad
The idea of turning a beloved childhood character like Winnie-the-Pooh into a horror film is an abhorrent one. It disrespects the original material and completely disregards what these characters meant to their creators.
Writer/director Rhys Frake-Waterfield’s microbudget R-rated slasher follows AA Milne’s storybook bear and his friend Piglet (played by Craig David Dowsett and Chris Cordell) as they transform from boyhood friends into hulking Leatherface-style murderers of humans. When Christopher Robin (Nikolai Leon) and Mary (Paula Coiz) return to Hundred Acre Wood five years after leaving, Pooh and Piglet are still stalking their victims, delivering fresh blood at mechanical intervals.
The film looks as bad as it sounds, a crude parody of the Texas Chain Saw Massacre 1974 with an unnerving villain who can only be understood through gory gore. Unfortunately, this mess of missteps, subpar filmmaking and overdone gore should have been avoided at all costs.
