The Grinch is Getting a Violent R-Rated Christmas Horror Film THE MEAN ONE


Dr. Suess’ classic story How the Grinch Stole Christmas serves as the motivation for a new indie horror movie coming out called The Mean One. It will put a new frightening violent R-rated spin on the classic character.

The Mean One is defined as an “outrageous slasher parody” and in the brave new parody, “The Mean One (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.”

David Howard Thornton plays Art the Clown in Terrifier 2 and he further “cements his presence in horror history with this newly-iconic slasher villain. Holiday aficionados who think they know The Mean One are in for a very big surprise.”

The movie was directed by Steven LaMorte’with a script by Flip and Finn Kobler, The Mean One also stars Chase Mullins, John Bigham, Erik Baker, Flip Kobler, and Amy Schumacher.

The Mean One below will be released in select theaters on December 9th.
