From time to time, incredible events in this world of strangeness happen, for example, when you dream of something and some time later it materializes in your life as if you had asked for it for Christmas. Well, something like that just happened, probably because someone, somewhere in the world, dreamed that the Grinch became a sadistic murderer who terrorized the city in December. And now, for everyone’s good luck, that someone’s dream came true.
As you know, the beautiful habit of taking certain stories (mainly children’s) to the horror genre format has been born. For this, one of the most awaited projects is that of Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey, same that reinvents the tender and colorful narrative of the adorable honey bear and leads it to become the antithesis of its original setting.
Along with this film, another one is added, which we did not expect at all, but now that we know that it is about to be released, we cannot with the emotion and gratitude that someone made it possible. This time the character that will give a total turn to his personality is nothing more and nothing less than the Grinch. Although, to be honest, it was quite possible that the gigantic goblin chose the path of violence, so now he can unleash his contempt for humanity on The mean one.
Now tell us, what’s better than combining Christmas, terror and a character worthy of the Krampus beast? We doubt that the person capable of answering that question exists, but what we can answer is what this new story will be about, although, perhaps, it will not surprise you at all, because basically we will see the Christmas thief direct all his hate towards Cindy Lou, you know who (Yes, that’s her name. So you never complain about yours again).
By way of summary, the fictional character created by Dr. Seuss, now revamped by director Steven LaMorte, will join the long line of slashers once he unleashes his baser murderous instincts on Cindy’s family, leaving her orphaned and traumatized for life until she returns to town and takes the path of revenge in the most comical and bloody ways possible.
It may seem like a silly production to some, and they are right, because that is precisely the purpose of these films. Bordering on the absurd is something common in this branch of terror, but that does not mean that there is no talent behind its realization. In this case, one of the names that will make you raise your eyebrows is the actor in charge of giving life to the Grinch, since David Howard Thornton himself takes off his clown suit to put himself in the furry green feet of the Christmas villain.
Undoubtedly, having the participation of the person who gives life to the clown Art in Terrifier I might change your mind and give this irrational wonder a chance. Anyway, you still have time to digest how the news makes you feel, because at the moment it is only known that it hits American theaters on December 8. We hope that in the following weeks they will reveal their premiere in Mexico and the rest of Latin America.
