Link Tank: A Winnie the Pooh Horror Movie Is Coming

Winnie the Pooh like you've never seen him before, Speed Racer is coming back to TV, how high Top Gun's box office can fly, and more in Link Tank!

Scary Winnie the Pooh

Just as A.A. Milne intended, Winnie the Pooh will be the star of his own horror film thanks to the character entering the public domain.

“Strange things can start to happen when beloved characters slip into the public domain, and the upcoming horror movie Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey sure is a testament to that. The upcoming horror movie – which is of course not related to Disney in any way, shape, or form – turns the anthropomorphic yellow teddy bear into a monstrous murderer. How is this even allowed, you ask? Well, the classic story entered the public domain at the start of this year, which means anyone and everyone is now free to do with Pooh as they please.”
