Do you remember Grinch? Dr. Seuss’s fictional character who hated Christmas and everything to do with it?
Well, the show creators recently decided to take things a step higher by adapting the movie into a horror version starring David Howard Thornton as the green monster.
What’s ‘The Mean One’ About?
Due to copyright issues from the original book series, Grinch will not be referred to as ‘The Grinch’ but instead ‘The Mean One’. The movie is shot on a mountainous terrain of Newville, involving a greenish creature that intimidates the Newville neighborhood during holidays while in a Santa costume.
Another character, Cindy, returns to Newville twenty years later after witnessing the monster murder her parents to save the holidays and get revenge for their death.
What’s in the Trailer for ‘The Mean One’?
Plenty of YouTube Channels recently revealed the official trailer for The Mean One, running for 1 minute and 48 seconds. The trailer perfectly aligns with the movie’s description of how Cindy’s parents were murdered, alongside her plot for revenge.
It proceeds with a glimpse of missing persons across the Newville neighborhood as Cindy wishes to investigate deeper into them. The Mean One has a lot in store for the fans this Christmas.
Who Produces ‘The Mean One’?
The Mean One is written by Flip and Finn Kolber, alongside Steven LaMorte as the film creator. Martine Melloul, LaMorte, and Amy Schumacher produce the movie from Kali Pictures, Amy Rose Productions, and Sleight of Hand Productions.
Yael Benamour is in the music department, Christopher Sheffield is in the cinematography, and Mathew Roscoe edited the show.
