Atlas Film Distribution is putting a slasher spin on Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas this festive season with the unofficial horror parody The Mean One, and thanks to Bloody Disgusting we have a look at the film’s teaser poster ahead of its release this December.
Directed by Steven LaMorte (Bury Me Twice), The Mean One stars Terrifer’s David Howard Thornton as the mean-tempered murderer, with a cast that also includes Chase Mullins, John Bigham, Erik Baker, Flip Kobler, and Amy Schumacher. Here’s the official synopsis…
In the audacious new parody, The Mean One (Terrifier 2‘s David Howard Thornton) is a hairy, green-skinned grump in a Santa suit, living on a mountain high above the town of Newville, despising the holiday season. Young Cindy You-Know-Who (Krystle Martin), whose parents were butchered by The Mean One twenty Christmases earlier, is returning to town to seek closure… but when the Mean One launches a new reign of terror that threatens to destroy Christmas, Cindy finds a bold new purpose – trapping and killing the monster.
The Mean One is set for release on December 9th.
