Similarly to Winne the Pooh: Blood and Honey, The Mean One reimagines a classic children’s story character as a fearsome slasher villain. The titular Mean One is played by Terrifier 2‘s David Howard Thornton.
“The Mean One is a hairy, green-skinned grump in a Santa suit, living on a mountain high above the town of Newville, despising the holiday season,” reads the film’s synopsis. “Young Cindy You-Know-Who, whose parents were butchered by The Mean One twenty Christmases earlier, is returning to town to seek closure … but is about to discover that this fiend with a heart two sizes too small is still quite eager to carve the roast beast.”
