Highlights

How Violent It Is

As shown in clips publicly and legally available online, “Winnie The Pooh: Blood and Honey” doesn’t hold back. Pooh tortures Christopher Robin and leaves marks on him that are absolutely gruesome. Piglet, with his sledgehammer, creates Spaghetti Western-type violence, and the depiction of an eyeball popping out is one of the many gross-out moments you’ll experience. But, if you love violent films, while it may not make you grimace or flinch, it does deliver what the trailer promised.

If You Like Camp, This Could Be A Funny Movie To You

The acting in the film is of the caliber of a B-movie or the kind of horror films you often don’t hear about since they are just released to Video on Demand with no marketing behind them. There are good things and bad things about that.

Focusing on the good, it makes it so there are multiple unintentionally comical moments in the film. Be it when Pooh realizes someone is there or watching the actors perform and either try to bring a more serious tone to the film or embrace the ridiculous notion of a movie featuring Winnie The Pooh and Piglet becoming monstrous serial killers.

On The Fence

It’s All About Shock Value

By now, we know, from our own experience and comments made, most don’t come to horror movies expecting top-quality performances or stories, and “Winnie The Pooh: Blood and Honey” is by no means an exception. Outside of characters whose existence likely is well beyond yours, like Christopher Robin, Winnie The Pooh, and Piglet, you’d be hard-pressed to remember and potentially care about anyone else.

Why? Because, essentially, they are just fodder, or food in some cases, for our villains. Also, more often than not, their deaths are comical, sometimes even worthy of an eye-roll, since they seem preventable. Now, yes, Pooh and Piglet can move quickly when they want to, Winnie The Pooh especially. However, other times there is just a level of stupidity that makes it very clear that a character exists to eventually die – likely in a gruesome way.

Winnie The Pooh: Blood and Honey (2023) – Review/ Summary
Overall
"Winnie The Pooh: Blood and Honey" delivers on taking childhood favorite characters and giving them a dark reboot, in ways you usually don't see with other classic properties. But, while the slasher horror side is enjoyable, it sticks to what's far easier to give in the horror genre, for better and sometimes worse.
