THE MEAN ONE Trailer Sends The Grinch On A Murderous Holiday Rampage

You've seen the poster, now check out the first trailer for Atlas Film Distribution's upcoming horror parody The Mean One, which reimagines The Grinch as even more of a miserable bastard!

The Grinch has never exactly been full of joyful Christman Spirit, but he's taking bah humbg to a whole new level in The Mean One.

On the heels of the recent poster, Atlas has debuted the first trailer for its upcoming horror parody, which reimagines the beloved character as a murderous maniac.

This unofficial retelling of the classic Christmas tale stars David Howard Thornton (Terrifier 2's Art the Clown) as the familiar-looking green grouch (they can't actually use the name Grinch), who brutally dispatches young Cindy You-Know-Who's (Krystle Martin) parents one Christmas Eve.

20 years later, a well-trained Cindy vows to trap the miserable monster and end his reign of terror once and for all.

Like Winnie The Pooh: Blood and Honey, this is a low-budget effort that really shouldn't be taken very seriously. It might be good for a few laughs, but it's difficult to imagine The Mean One turning out to be much more than an amusing distraction this Holiday season (hey, sometimes that's enough).

Check out the trailer below, and let us know what you think

"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."

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