Starring: Maria Taylor, Craig David Dowsett, Chris Cordell, Natasha Tosini, Natasha Rose Mills, Amber Doig-Thorne, Danielle Ronald, Danielle Scott, and Nikolai Leon
Director: Rhys Frake-Waterfield
Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey is not a good film by any stretch of the imagination. While there's some merit to the idea of creating a story in the same vein of a 1970s slasher film, the execution of said idea fails on nearly every level. Rhys Frake-Waterfield's direction is suspect, the sound mix is horrible, and the acting is atrocious from all parties involved. The only possible saving grace is Vince Knight's cinematography, which, while as spotty as the rest of the film, manages to show a few moments of brilliance. This is a film to be avoided at all costs.
To no one’s surprise, Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey is a very bad movie with no actual characters, exquisitely bad performances, terribly designed sets, nonsensical cinematography, and a story and script that clearly didn’t make it past the outline stage. There’s not one choice made in this movie that’s not obscenely stupid, no moment that’s not way longer than it needs to be. This would all be kind of fun if that made it so the film treaded on “so bad it’s good” territory, but an overlong and repetitive third act squashes any notion of that being the case.
