TRAUMATIZING

Don't watch this unless you want your childhood ruined! This shouldn't even be created in the first place! This was a movie that was too hard to watch. I'd rather watch Dora The Explorer or Don't Hug Me I'm Scared.

Our review:
Parents say (8 ):
Kids say (15 ):

After the subversive idea of turning beloved children's book characters into brutal killers wears off, all that's left in this low-budget horror movie are boring clichés and frustrating characters. The grungy-looking Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey begins with a crudely animated prologue that explains how the characters turned into hybrid creatures, and most of the fun ends there. (Not to mention that, after the prologue, we never see Rabbit or Owl again.) There are a couple of giggles early on thanks to visuals like a swarm of bees following Pooh around, or Pooh drooling disgustingly at the thought of a snack. But it's not long before the movie becomes a showcase for hacking up young women. Perhaps the worst idea is introducing Marie as a traumatized survivor of a sexual predator who then must face yet more horror. It feels cruel. By the time it reaches its "what?" ending, Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey has turned from a bizarre, controversial internet meme into a totally forgettable slasher movie.
