Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey will finally premiere in UK cinemas next month.

Set to be released across the pond next Wednesday (February 15) for one day only, this unexpected horror from director Rhys Frake-Waterfield is officially coming to UK and Irish cinemas from Friday, March 10, following a sold-out premiere screening at FrightFest Glasgow.

It'll be available on DVD, Blu-ray and other digital platforms later in the spring.

"During childhood, Christopher Robin befriended Winnie-the-Pooh, Piglet and their friends, played games and fed them. But as he grew older, the visits stopped, leaving them increasingly hungry and desperate, eyeing Eeyore as food," teases a synopsis.

"Now Christopher has returned to the forest with his new wife hoping to introduce her to his old friends. But it sends Pooh and Piglet on a murderous scavenger hunt for human flesh when they antagonise a group of college girls on a rural cabin vacation.

"Will Christopher still get Pooh back on the right track?"

Yeah... you read that right.

Frake-Waterfield himself previously spoke of the impact being abandoned in the woods for all those years had on Pooh and Piglet.

"Because they've had to fend for themselves so much, they've essentially become feral," he told The Huffington Post. "So they've gone back to their animal roots.

"They're no longer tame: they're like a vicious bear and pig who want to go around and try and find prey."

Before Blood and Honey has even reached the big screen, the word-of-mouth popularity it's enjoying has already led to sequel plans.

Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey will premiere on February 15 in the US, and March 10 in the UK and Ireland.
