This year adult horror movies with very particular twists are in fashion. Especially with protagonists at the center who are generally not designed for the genre. First it was Winnie the Pooh and then a killer clown terrified audiences with the sequel Terrifier 2. Now it is the turn of The Grinch and it will happen with The Mean Onea film full of violence that promises to turn the character into the true terror of Christmas.
The Mean One tells the story of a monstrous being who is determined to ruin Christmas. But not only that, but also to kill everyone who gets in his way, while he steals the gifts placed under the tree.
The official synopsis for The Mean One reads like this:
“In a sleepy town nestled at the bottom of a mountain, Cindy’s parents are murdered (and their Christmas presents stolen) by a bloodthirsty creature in a red Santa Claus suit. A creature known as The Mean One. However, when the ravenous Christmas-hating monster begins to terrorize the town and threatens to ruin the festivities, Cindy finds a new purpose: to catch and kill the monster.
The film is a production of Sleight of Hand Productions, an independent production company barely making its way through the industry. Within its catalog there are films such as Memory Lane, bury me twiceeither Powerpuff Girls: The Long Way Backa kind of adaptation of The Powerpuff Girls, but with very particular features.
The Mean One is that kind of movie that promises plenty of gore and dismemberment. Ideal for lovers of horror and gore. The most special thing is that the monster who hates Christmas will be played by David Howard Thornton. The same interpreter that he transformed into a cursed clown for the famous Terrifier 2.
The film completes its cast with Krystle Martin and Chase Mullins. While the direction run by Steven LaMorte. Same filmmaker of the films mentioned above and produced by Sleight of Hand. The script is in charge of Finn Kobler and Flip Koble.
In the United States The Mean One will premiere in theaters on December 19, 2022. In Mexico it still does not have a defined date. But it is most likely that his commercial run through our country will be confirmed very soon, as it happened with Terrifier 2 and with Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey.
