Is Winnie The Pooh A Bear Or Masked Man In Blood & Honey? It’s Complicated

Home Movie News Is Winnie The Pooh A Bear Or Masked Man In Blood & Honey? It’s Complicated
Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey’s writer/director explains whether the horror movie’s version of Pooh is an actual bear or a man in a bear mask.
Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey writer/director Rhys Frake-Waterfield answers one question about the horror movie that’s been on everyone’s minds. Winnie-the-Pooh entered the public domain at the beginning of last year, allowing Frake-Waterfield to develop a demented reimagining of A. A. Milne’s beloved children’s book. Since the film’s first images were released online last May and drew widespread attention, there has been a debate over whether Blood and Honey’s version of Pooh is an actual bear or a man in a bear mask.
Now, Rhys Frake-Waterfield has the answer, and it’s a bit of both. In a recent interview with Variety, the Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey director (who also penned the screenplay) explains that the slasher movie’s version of Pooh is “half-man, half-bear.” Read his full explanation below:
He’s got a mix of human organs and blood, but also there’s fluff [inside] him. If that sounds ridiculous, it’s deliberate. To me, the whole tone of the movie is just fun and a bit [of] satire. You’re supposed to laugh at it.

What Is Winnie the Pooh: Blood & Honey About?
The titular half-man, half-bear isn’t the only beloved childhood icon that will be turned into a sadistic serial killer in Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey. One of his closest friends, Piglet, will be joining Winnie-the-Pooh on his killing spree throughout the Hundred Acre Wood. The writer/director did not disclose if Piglet is similarly half-man, half-pig, though Frake-Waterfield did say the movie is supposed to be fun and satirical, and not meant to be taken too seriously.
Blood and Honey follows a feral Pooh and Piglet on a murderous rampage throughout the Hundred Acre Wood, terrorizing Christopher Robin and his college friends. It seems their killing spree is motivated by their childhood friend abandoning the anthropomorphic creatures when he leaves for college, causing them to develop a deep hatred for humans. It’s sort of a twisted take on the plot of Toy Story 3.
Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey has started to roll out in theaters internationally, and it’s already making a killing at the box office. In Mexico alone, the movie has grossed nearly $1 million, an impressive feat on a microbudget of under $100,000. Only time will tell if Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey can continue capitalizing on its viral online presence when it releases in theaters everywhere on February 15.
