A Winnie the Pooh horror movie is on its way, and no we're not joking
It's not the Winnie the Pooh we remember.
Over the years many books have been adapted into movies, with Disney's version of A.A. Milne's Winnie the Pooh being one of them.
Earlier this year the copyright on the character of Winnie the Pooh came into the public domain which means anyone can use the character in their work, which has led to Winnie taking up some very bad habits.

Director Rhys Frake-Waterfield has taken the beloved character of Winnie in a very different direction by turning him into a serial killer, and no I'm not joking.
Frake-Waterfield is currently in the middle of creating his latest horror titled Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey, which will see the gang leave behind their search for honey for their search of chaos.
The film will follow Pooh and Piglet, who are left to fend for themselves after Christopher Robin abandons them to go to college.
Because of this they become feral and vicious and take up a life of murder and mayhem.
Even as someone who likes horror movies, I find the concept of Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey a little out there and I don't know if I really see myself sitting down to watch it.
Maybe when it's available to watch at home I'll give it a go just to see what it's like.
On that note though, please be careful after its release that you don't accidentally stick it on for the kids thinking it's Disney's Winnie the Pooh as it looks to have some very violent and graphic scenes in it.
