After stealing Christmas, The Grinch is back and it looks like he wants more than that. That’s what you can see in a new, truly scary movie this time.
The new Christmas horror film shows us a rather gruesome twist on the character created by Dr. Seuss, the one who hates the winter holidays.
David Howard Thornton, best known for his role as Art the Clown in the Terrifier films, leads the cast of The Mean One as The Grinch, along with Krystle Martin as Cindy You-Know-Who, Chase Mullins, John Bigham and Erin Baker.
The trailer for the new horror film starring The Grinch, The Evil One, has officially been released
Just over a week before its theatrical release, the official trailer for The Mean One has hit YouTube.
The Mean One is the latest film of its kind. Rhys Frake-Waterfield adopted a similar technique for Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey, but is also working on an equally sinister Peter Pan.
It was also recently announced that Frake-Waterfield will also produce a horror film based on Bambi the goat.
With The Mean One scheduled for release in early December, it’s safe to say that it’s going to be a tough time ahead, since 2022 has seen a lot of horror films released, but not necessarily all in the slasher genre, admittedly.
As of January this year, most of the horror films released have set a positive trend in theaters, ranging from the spectacular success of The Black Phone or even Jordan Peele’s Nope to X, Pearl, Barbarian, Terrifier 2 and Smile, all reaffirming the still-great power this niche of cinema has.
Only time will decide if The Mean One will be a success or a total flop once it hits theaters on December 9, 2022.
