Winnie The Pooh horror movie accidentally shown to 4th grade class

Don’t you just hate it when you go to a maths lesson in the hopes of learning Pythagoras theorem but instead come out with enough nightmare fuel to last a lifetime? That is what happened to the children of one 4th grade class after they were shown Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey.

We all remember movie days in school (especially in the 90s when they would wheel in the giant tv on wheels) but not all of us remember being shown the latest slasher flick that shows the popular childhood characters being turned into bloodthirsty murderers. That was unfortunately true for one 4th grade class in Florida when the children – consisting of 9-10 year olds – decided they wanted to watch the latest Winnie the Pooh instalment.

Check out the Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey trailer below!

Titled Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey, the British slasher film tells the story of the Hundred Acre Wood gang after they have been abandoned by a teenage Christopher Robin. Instead of laying down Toy Story-style and accepting their fates, they must do what it takes to survive, even if that means killing and eating poor Eeyore. What follows is just over one hour of murders by woodchipper, mauling, strangulation and a bit of stabbing. Not exactly the best choice of movie for a bunch of children, especially as reviews describe it as so bad it’s good.

Despite the flick only being shown to the class for around 20 minutes, one parent was understandably unhappy about the movie choice. "It's not for them to decide what they want to,” the mother said after finding out it was the children who picked the movie. “It's up to the professor to look at the content."

As a result of the mistake, the school’s headteacher spoke to UNILAD about the event. "Last week, a video was mistakenly shown by a teacher during indoor lunch. Only the first 20 minutes of the movie was played. During those first 20 minutes, there was a scary scene that was shown. At that point, the teacher turned off the video.

"The issue was promptly addressed with the teacher, students, and parents that were involved. Parents were reassured that the school has followed all school district policies and procedures in response to the incident and will continue to support the students’ safety and well-being on a daily basis."

It remains to be seen if the school will be paying for the children’s therapy bills but hopefully their views of the Hundred Acre Woods gang won’t be ruined forever.
