Just when one classic children’s story in Winnie the Pooh gets the horror treatment, then bibbidi bobbidi boo you have loads on your hands. 

Already we have had the Dr Seuss’ Grinch-inspired The Mean One, and it has been confirmed we will be getting new horror treatments of both Bambi and Peter Pan, as well as a further sequel to the aforementioned Winnie the Pooh Blood and Honey, well now it’s the turn of Cinderella in Cinderella’s Curse. As this new horror trend looks to get in there before the clock strikes midnight!

Bloody Disgusting broke the story this week, announcing this new “gory horror” take on the legendary and enduring tale. This film will apparently be the Cinderella we know and love, but with a bit more death and rampage! Those stepsisters better watch their back!

Producer/director Louisa Warren has said, “gore hounds are in for a treat in my dark retelling”. As writer Harry Boxley will pen the screenplay, with Kelly Rian Sanson, Chrissie Wunna and Danielle Scott cast as the leads, as the film prepares to film in the UK next month.

You shall go to the ball indeed! Or rather go ball-istic.
