We found the most uninhibited and potentially stupid film of this end of the year. On December 9, a certain The Mean One will land in American dark rooms (no French release date for the moment, it smells of VOD broadcasting and you will quickly understand why). This horrifying and parody feature film is actually the fourth adaptation of the Christmas tale The Grinch who wanted to ruin Christmas by Dr Seuss, which is moreover unauthorized by the rights holders. That’s why director Steven LaMorte and his crew couldn’t use the Grinch or any related term in the original story, and we’re clearly looking at a devilishly stupid, gory, and therefore potentially enjoyable B-movie. .See also on KonbiniThe Mean One promises a story in the vein of iconic slashers of the genre, the Scream saga in mind. In Newville, a seemingly peaceful and pastoral city, the inhabitants are preparing to celebrate Christmas. But the festivities will quickly turn into a nightmare when a bloodthirsty creature (David Howard Thornton), lodged in the surrounding mountains and disguised as Santa Claus, invites himself to the celebrations to massacre everyone. Both frightened and revolted, the young Cindy You-Know-Who (Krystle Martin and yes, that’s her character’s name), whose parents were killed by the second-rate Grinch when she was a child, decides to take matters into her own hands and goes into mode Laurie Strode to smash it with a garlanded baseball bat. If you’re not satiated with The Mean One, know that 2023 has even more hilarious and gleefully horrifying horror movies in store for you. We therefore recommend that you do not miss Blood and Honey, a slasher where the killer is… Winnie the Pooh, in a resolutely gore and nanardesque version of the Forest of Blue Dreams expected in February 2023 on the big screen — Overseas Atlantic anyway.
