In much the same way as the Winnie the Pooh story got flipped into a gory horror flick “Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey”, now the Grinch is getting the same treatment. “The Mean One” is a more extreme version where The Grinch realizes that the true meaning of Christmas is, blood?
The film’s official synopsis is: “The Mean One (David Howard Thornton) is a hairy, green-skinned grump in a Santa suit, living on a mountain high above the town of Newville, despising the holiday season. Young Cindy You-Know-Who (Krystle Martin), whose parents were butchered by The Mean One 20 Christmases earlier, is returning to town to seek closure… but is about to discover that this fiend with a heart two sizes too small is still quite eager to carve the roast beast.”
It will be out in time for the season…December 15.
