What We Know So Far About the Upcoming Horror Movie “The Mean One”

Winnie-the- Pooh is not the only childhood favorite that horror enthusiasts have acquired. Additionally, Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey perfectly illustrates how a beloved children’s tale can be transformed into a bloody horror film. When Christopher Robin travels to college, he leaves his companions behind the 100 Acre Woods. Pooh and Piglet turn feral to survive, returning to their animalistic roots as wild bears and hogs. Years later, Christopher returns, finds out what happened, and finds out that Piglet and Pooh have animosities toward one another. Keep a watch out for any developments regarding streaming availability since this movie’s projected release date is October 20, 2022.

However, it’s possible that the word “adopted” isn’t appropriate here. It might be better to say, “taken hostage.” How the Grinch Stole Christmas, a children’s tale by Dr. Seuss will have its fourth adaptation with The Mean One. This will be an unofficial parody of the story, unlike the others, which had all obtained the necessary rights. Due to a lack of licenses, the authors had to take additional care to avoid utilizing any terminology or names directly lifted from the book. This interpretation of The Grinch will differ significantly from Jim Carrey’s original 1966 animated television special.

The Mean One

The Christmas horror parody will be produced by XYZ Productions in collaboration with A Sleight of Hand Productions, Amy Rose Productions, and Kali Pictures. It was revealed on October 7, 2022. The film’s aesthetic will be reminiscent of past horror film adaptations of children’s series, such as The Banana Splits Movie and Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey. The script for this film was written by Finn and Flip Kobler and directed by Steven LaMorte (Bury Me Twice). LaMorte and Finn Kobler previously collaborated on other endeavors, including Bury Me Twice and Nightwatch. Along with co-producing the film alongside Amy Schumaker and Martine Melloul, LaMorte also directed it (Open Wounds). By reading on, we can discover everything we currently know about the plot, characters, and crew.

The Mean One Release date

The release day for The Mean One is December 15, 2022. Although the actual release location of the film hasn’t been confirmed, XYZ Productions claims that on that date, The Mean One will be freely streamable “anywhere,” making it the ideal candidate to succeed Nightmare Before Christmas.

The cast of The Mean One  

The Mean One, the main character in this holiday slasher, will be played by David Howard Thornton, who is presently reprising his role as Art, the Clown, in Terrifier 2. He has, incidentally, performed as “The Grinch” on national theatrical tours of How the Grinch Stole Christmas: The Musical. Ironically, he impersonates The Grinch in his audition tape for the first Terrifier movie. He now has the chance to combine his talent for scary acting with a well-known persona. Krystle Martin will play Cindy You-Know-Who. She most recently appeared in the Shudder Original movie They Live In The Grey, but her true calling is as a stunt performer and coordinator. Given her extensive background in stunt work, her attempts to exact revenge on her parents should result in some exciting, high-impact combat scenes with The Mean One. 

Also appearing in the movie as a Lou character is screenwriter Flip Kobler. Along with the Mayor of Newville, producer Amy Schumaker joins him in the film from behind the scenes. In Steven LaMorte’s television series Nightwatch, Chase Mullins played a police officer. As Officer Burke, he will recast the character. Erik Baker will play Sheriff Hooper of Newville (Meditation). ‘Doc’ will be portrayed by John Bigham of ‘The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari’ fame. It’s unclear if he is a doctor, in fact, or if that is just his name.

The plot of The Mean One  

In this particular tale, the Grinch’s heart does not swell to three times its original size. In fact, because of copyright issues, he isn’t even referred to as “The Grinch” at all. He is referred to as “The Mean One” instead. The tale is set in the tiny mountain town of Newville, where a green-skinned monster terrorizes the locals every Christmas while donning a blood-red Santa outfit. Twenty years after witnessing The Mean One brutally murder her parents, Cindy You-Know-Who makes her way back to Newville, determined to get revenge. In time to rescue Christmas, will she manage to beat The Mean One?


No official trailer for The Mean One has been produced as of the time of this writing. The only evidence we have comes from a few production photos that were made public, along with the movie’s announcement. A trailer may be released closer to the premiere because the release date is still a few months away.
