Director, Rhys Frake-Waterfield elected to adapt the story into a terrifying tale; with a micro-budget of fewer than $100,000, the horrifying film has already gone on to earn over $4 million at the US box office and is now available in the UK on DVD, blu-ray & digital.
In one of the leading roles, Amber Doig-Thorne plays Alice, who is terrorized and kidnapped by Pooh and Piglet, with terrifying consequences.
Amber’s talent has landed her leading roles in over 100 productions, including 23 British feature films (The Seven, Demons at Dawn, Heropanti 2, Vikings: Battle of Heirs) and numerous award-winning short films, and comedy productions.
On filming one of the most talked about films of the year, Amber says: “There have been reactions from excitement to outrage, but I think it’s an amazing and unique concept; as soon as I read the script, I knew I wanted to be involved. I don’t see it as ruining people’s childhoods; I think it’s a wonderful opportunity to redefine these characters for adults to enjoy in a horror setting. It was one of my favourite filming experiences, with a wonderful crew, beautiful locations and a sense that we were filming something special”.

In addition, Amber writes and produces original comedy shorts, which have received over 100 million views online.
