‘Blood and Honey’ director has his sights set on ‘Teletubbies’
Having been revealed as nothing more than a one-trick pony of the worst kind after being brutalized by critics with an embarrassing Rotten Tomatoes score of six percent, the excitement and curiosity about what Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey Director Rhys Frake-Waterfield will be totally blown away next.
The trend of reinventing beloved child characters as the stars of blood-soaked slashers is already alive, but that hasn’t stopped the filmmaker from dreaming about what he might butcher in the future. In an interview with ScreenRant, he even went so far as to admit that the Teletubbies were on his wish list, which we’d rather not see, thank you very much.
“I’d really like to implement some other crazy ideas Teletubbies And Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I think that would be so much fun. Now they obviously have an IP, and they’re obviously still copyrighted, so it can be a bit tricky to implement those two concepts.
But I want to try and find stuff like that, I want to find stuff that I could license and do that’s just crazy and crazy and weird and it’s just for people who just go and see a horror movie that I’ve got just fun. I don’t want them to be too deep and too serious. I like to watch some kind of grounded and elevated horror, but there’s a big market for that. A lot of people want that, they want to go there and just have fun.”
Can you see someone really screaming Teletubbies Given the blood and honey Treatment? If anything, the critters are scary and unsettling enough on their own without committing onscreen atrocities, but there’s only so much mileage you can get out of a gimmick that’s extremely flimsy at first before people stop, to care more.
Then again, given how all but the most vocal horror fans have reacted to the honey-loving bear’s recent misadventure, that time might already have come.
