THE GRINCH Is Reimagined As A Murderous Maniac On First Poster For THE MEAN ONE

There seems to be something of a trend emerging of children's classics being given a horror twist, and this latest feature from Atlas Film reimagines The Grinch as a bloodthirsty maniac...

It looks like Winnie The Pooh: Blood and Honey might have opened the floodgates!

Atlas Film Distribution has announced that its The Grinch horror parody, The Mean One, is set for a theatrical release on December 9th, and you can check out the poster art (via FearHQ.com) below.

Since this is an "unofficial" parody, they can't use the word Grinch or any of the other main character's names, but based on the synopsis, director Steven LaMorte and writers Flip and Finn Kobler have managed to stick pretty close to the original children's classic... gruesome violence and murder aside, obviously.

The Grinch was always a bit of a grump, but something tells us this guy won't be allowing the Christmas Spirit to fill him with joy at the end of The Mean One.

"In the audacious new parody, The Mean One (Terrifier 2‘s 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 twenty Christmases earlier, is returning to town to seek closure… but when the Mean One launches a new reign of terror that threatens to destroy Christmas, Cindy finds a bold new purpose – trapping and killing the monster."

The Mean One also stars Chase Mullins, John Bigham, Erik Baker, Flip Kobler, and Amy Schumacher.

A trailer should be with us fairly soon, so be sure to keep an eye out.
