Bambi horror film The Reckoning announced

As Felix Salten’s original book enters the public domain, a reimagining called Bambi: The Reckoning hopes to terrify audiences.

When the trailer for upcoming Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey was released this summer, many Disney fans were horrified to see beloved child characters like Winnie the Pooh and Piglet appear in a gory slasher flick. But as the film’s producers have made very clear, the upcoming B-movie has no connection to the Disney franchise. With AA Milne’s original Winnie the Pooh books in the public domain, artists and filmmakers of all stripes can now do with the material as they please.

And what director Rhys Frake-Waterfield wanted to do was get very, very gory. In an interview, he stated that his take on the popular children’s fiction characters won’t pull any punches. According to him, “Blood and Honey” is a vengeance-driven film in which the anthropomorphic animals seek revenge after Christopher Robbin has grown up and abandoned them.

“They get angry when they see him and all of their hatred that they’ve built up over the years unleashes and they rage,” Frake-Waterfield said. “It’s definitely Pooh and Piglet – it’s not just two people in a mask. The story is that they went into this attack because they were kind of angry about what happened to Christopher.”

Now the team behind Hundred Acre Woods’ exploitation film is preparing to repeat that formula with another childhood classic: “Bambi.” Felix Salten’s 1923 novel Bambi, A Life in the Woods has entered the public domain and Frake-Waterfield will produce a chilling version of the story entitled Bambi: The Reckoning.

In a new interview with Dread Central announcing the project, the film’s director Scott Jeffrey revealed that the horror film is partially inspired by David Bruckner’s The Ritual.

“The film will be an incredibly dark retelling of the 1928 story that we all know and love,” Jeffrey said. “Inspired by the design used in Netflix’s ‘The Ritual,’ Bambi will be a vicious killing machine that lurks in the wild. Prepare for rabies on Bambi!”

No release date or other plot details have been announced, but considering how many children were traumatized by a specific death scene in Disney’s “Bambi” movie, Jeffrey and Frake-Waterfield should have no shortage of material to work with be able.
