‘Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey II’ Launches With 100% Fresh Rating on Rotten Tomatoes

The 100-Acre-Wood will once again be drenched in blood in Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey II, a sequel to last year’s viral hit that arrives in theaters beginning TONIGHT.

From Fathom Events, the slasher sequel will be playing in theaters nationwide on March 26, March 27 and March 28, so make sure you get out there and see it while you can.

Of course, anyone who has seen the not-so-good first movie may not be all that eager to get out and support another one of these, but the early reviews for Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey II are surprisingly strong out of the gate. Granted, only six critics have logged their reviews over on Rotten Tomatoes at this time, but the film is currently 100% Fresh!

Rotten Pooh: For the sake of comparison, last year’s Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey has a 3% score on Rotten Tomatoes with 62 reviews logged!

The reviews currently logged for Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey II come from the websites AV Club, SciFiNow, 3C Films, FILMINK, Dread Central, and The Blogging Banshee.

Dread Central’s Mary Beth McAndrews writes, “Winnie-The-Pooh: Blood and Honey 2 is a vast improvement to its predecessor, campy and weird but a bit too self-serious for its own good.”

Molly Henery writes for The Blogging Banshee, “Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey 2 is a grizzly piece of meta horror that is sure to surprise audiences.”

Writing for AV Club, Luke Y. Thompson raves: “This is cinema at its most punk rock—a raucous, unpolished, cheap, sacred-cow shredding middle finger to the mainstream with just enough raw talent inside to keep it from being dismissable.”

We can be pretty certain that the Rotten Tomatoes score for Blood and Honey II will be cut down considerably in the coming days, but right now it’s pretty wild to see the film getting such high marks from the few people who have seen it. The sequel was promised to be “bigger, better and bloodier” than the first film, and it sounds like maybe the team wasn’t lying.

Where does this franchise go from here? The team has already announced the “Poohniverse,” a series of horror films that will pave the way for an Avengers-style mashup in 2025.

Hey, you can’t blame them for exploiting these public domain icons!
