Who is Rhys Frake-Waterfield, auteur of Winnie the Pooh Blood & Honey?

Waterfield is taking on all the childhood classics.

A horror revamp of childhood classics is only happening because the IP has gone back into the public domain, and we introduce you to the director, Rhys Frake-Waterfield, and reveal where to watch Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey.

Back at the end of January 2023, a sequel to Blood and Honey was announced, weeks before its upcoming theatrical debut.

Written, directed, and co-produced by Waterfield, the British independent horror, Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey, is based on the books of the same name by A. A. Milne and E. H. Shepard, following Pooh and Piglet who have turned into feral killers after being abandoned by Christopher Robin.

Meet Rhys Frake-Waterfield

British-born professional, Rhys Frake-Waterfield, has covered many positions in the business, including director, producer, writer, and visual effects artist.

Wakefield has directed one short and six feature movies, including Alien Abduction, The Killing Tree, and 2023’s Firenado. The seventh project with Wakefield at the helm will be Peter Pan’s Neverland Nightmare, which is currently in production.

On the producing front, Wakefield has worked on Return of Krampus, Curse of Jack Frost, and Wrath of Van Helsing, as well as seven credits in the visual effects department, including Dinosaur Hotel.

The busy artist currently has a staggering fifteen projects currently in post-production, which he is credited as a producer on, including Rise of Loch Ness, Mary Had a Little Lamb, and Three Blind Mice.

Continuing the guy’s penchant for turning classic children’s tales dark, Wakefield will also be producing the viral upcoming horror Bambi: The Reckoning, which is expected to see the innocent deer turn into a “killing machine”, confirmed by IMDB.
