The Grinch’s blood-red Santa Claus coat is not the one splash of crimson that’ll be decking the halls this vacation season. Inspired by Dr. Seuss’s basic kids’s story, the bushy inexperienced villain is making a killer comeback in XYZ Films’ new parody horror film. “The Mean One” — which received its title from the tune “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch,” initially carried out by Thurl Ravenscroft within the 1966 animated TV particular “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!” — reimagines the story of the notorious Grinch by sucking out all of the childood whimsy and changing it with a grotesque storyline that ends in piles of blood-stained snow.

If Dr. Seuss’s unique Grinch was as cuddly as a cactus and as charming as an eel, it feels like director Steven LaMorte’s The Mean One (David Howard Thornton) is somebody Cindy (Krystle Martin) would possibly must combat off with a 39-and-a-half-foot pole. “In a sleepy mountain city, Cindy [You-Know-Who] has her mother and father murdered and her Christmas stolen by a blood-thirsty inexperienced determine in a pink Santa swimsuit — The Mean One,” the movie’s IMDb web page reads. “But when the ravenous, Christmas-hating creature begins to terrorize the city and threatens to wreck the vacation, she finds a brand new objective — trapping and killing the monster.”

Does “ravenous” suggest that The Mean One’s model of “roast beast” is not hen or turkey however that he makes meals of his victims after they have been slain? It appears seemingly. But with Cindy You-Know-Who — a play on phrases of Cindy Lou Who — out for revenge, the serial killer’s reign of terror would possibly lastly be put to an finish.
