“SomeBunny’s Pissed”

Over the past few years, filmmakers have turned childhood memories into monsters and sweet stories into slashers. That includes the slasher Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey 2, which just opened in theaters. Unsurprisingly, other filmmakers are following in their footsteps. That’s the case with the new short horror film Thumper’s Revenge, which has just hopped onto YouTube. And that’s the movie we’re here to talk about.

A Different Kind of Tale

Thumper’s Revenge darkens and twists the tale of the cute animated friends Thumper and Bambi, telling a story of bloody Revenge. In Thumper’s Revenge, “Screams echo in the meadow, and blood will spill when hunters aim Bambi from the hill. They can run and plead, but Thumper is about to make them bleed.”

Cast and Crew

Directed by Sean Haitz (Big Top Evil, Cannibal Comedian), the short was written by Haitz and Mark Cerulli (Halloween Unmasked). It stars Johnny Hoops (Babylon), Clair Brauer, Haitz, and Aaron Prager.

Twisted Inspiration

According to Haitz, the film was inspired by the hit Winnie-the-Pooh 2: Blood and Honey.

“I was totally inspired by WINNIE-THE-POOH: BLOOD AND
HONEY,” Haitz says, though he came up with a more plausible concept for his
project. “I thought of an alternative route with the Disney characters: Let’s laser
focus on Thumper, which I felt was a fun name for a title. I also thought, let’s
have Bambi and Thumper as humans who are Disney freaks who cosplay in the
forest dressing up like the characters. It was really fun to shoot, and I hope
people get a kick out of it!”
