The Grinch Gets a Horror Spoof in ‘The Mean One’ Trailer

I at all times thought Jim Carrey because the Grinch in Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas was bizarre and creepy sufficient. However for many who need to go full horror this Christmas, there may be now The Imply One, a horror parody of Seuss’ Christmas basic.

First introduced to a befuddled however curious public a number of months in the past, the movie stars David Howard Thornton, none apart from Artwork the Clown from Terrifier 2, as “The Imply One.” And who’s the Imply One? Effectively, right here to elucidate is the movie’s trailer, which reveals a survivor of the Imply One’s killer rampage a long time earlier returns to “Newville” intent on getting revenge for her mom’s homicide:

The announcement of this undertaking went viral on social media, in very comparable style to the curiosity across the upcoming Winnie the Pooh horror spoof Blood and Honey. Whether or not that on-line buzz will translate to field workplace or digital leases stays to be seen, in fact. But when these films do nicely, there’s seemingly no restrict to the beloved childhood classics that couldn’t be spoof. (I’d wish to see certainly one of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Manufacturing unit; that film’s already mainly a slasher movie for kids anyway.)

Right here is The Imply One’s official synopsis:

One Christmas Eve, in a sleepy mountain city, Cindy’s mom is killed and her Christmas stolen by the Imply One, a bloodthirsty inexperienced grouch in a crimson Santa go well with. 20 years later, Cindy returns to Newville, the place the monster launches one other bloody reign of terror that threatens to destroy Christmas. Now Cindy’s bought a daring new function: trapping and killing The Imply One.

The Imply One is scheduled to open in theaters on December 9.
