‘Winnie-The-Pooh: Blood And Honey 2’ Ending Explained & Movie Recap: Does Chris Kill Pooh?

Why on earth would you even watch Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey 2? It’s futile asking the question, because if you’re here reading this article then chances are you’ve watched it already. In your defense, I have my share of terrible movie watching experience as well. In a strange way, some of them are oddly satisfying – obviously in a “so bad that it’s good” way. However, the first part of the film which was released last year was nothing short of atrocious and that was about it. But a sequel was already in the pipeline and there was no way we could stop it. Well, I don’t know about you, but I thought this one was a serious improvement. I mean, we can’t really call Blood and Honey 2 a good movie but it’s almost there. Some of it, especially the final act, is really cool – if you have a thing for gore. It even reminded me of the much superior Terrifier 2 (2022), another film of the slasher genre, which took the game to a whole different level, compared to the first movie which was strictly okay. Anyway, I’m here to clear your confusions over Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey 2 and discuss the ending and what might happen in the next one (yeah, there’s a third one coming as well). Let’s get on with it.

Spoilers Ahead


What Happens In The Film? 

The first thing Blood and Honey 2 does is discard the terrible first film. No, they don’t start everything from scratch again. What you saw before did happen. But the entire first film happens to be a film within this universe, based on what Christopher Robin had experienced. They’re calling it “Hundred Acre Massacre”, although most of Ashdown doesn’t believe Chris. In fact, they think Chris is the one who might have murdered all those people. Even though he’s slandered by most of the townsfolk, Chris (played by Scott Chambers this time) is working in the town hospital. For the trauma he had to endure, he’s taking hypnotherapy now. Chris does have some people by his side – his parents Alan and Daphne, little sister Ella, aka Bunny, and Lexi, his childhood friend turned girlfriend. There are a few in town who do believe in his story about the “monsters,” and they seek them around the woods. That’s clearly not a good idea, considering it has made Pooh (Ryan Oliva is playing the part here) and his friends angrier and frustrated. In fact, the film opens with Pooh, Owl, Piglet and Tigger torturing and mutilating three young girls – who were out in a trailer to call upon the spirit of the woods (clearly, they shouldn’t have). Pooh and co are soon attacked by three young men – who shoot Piglet to death. That only prompts Pooh and the rest to unleash their wrath and murder two of them. The third one, Aaron survives despite having half of his face mutilated.

Why Does Pooh Decide To Attack Ashdown?

Even though Pooh is the central villain here, you’ve gotta admit Owl has to be the coolest one in the evil team. It’s him who suggests to Pooh that they should attack Ashdown and tear everyone apart. Pooh is still a little skeptical about leaving the safety of their familiar woods and going out in the open. But once Piglet dies, Pooh decides to listen to Owl and go on an all out attack. Time has come to teach Chris a lesson, after all! 


Who Is Pooh Really? 

Did we really need an origin story of how the anthropomorphic bear and his friends came to life? I’m torn between saying both yes and no. The film could have gone the same way even without the backstory – but the director probably thought about giving the whole thing a meaning, or a purpose. So here’s what happened – Chris had a brother, Billy, who got kidnapped along with a few other children by this man named Cavendish. They were handed over to one Dr. Gallup, who was insane enough to run some kind of mutation experiment on the poor kids, turning them into those unfortunate things. By the time the doctor realized what he had done, it was too late and he had no choice but to put his experiments down. He did exactly that, but as fate would have it – Pooh and everyone else came out of their graves. This clearly means that they had gone beyond the normal science of life and death! Cavendish, who only took the children because the doctor promised to pay off his gambling debts, eventually felt guilty – that led him into killing the doctor, and then burning his house down. The whole point of Chris taking the hypnotherapy is him reaching Cavendish and finding out the truth. Cavendish taking his own life right after telling Chris about the whole thing might seem a bit too much but also makes sense, considering how miserable the man has been. For Chris though, he now has to deal with the fact that Pooh is none other than his own brother, Billy – well, whatever is left of him!

Does Chris Kill Pooh?

Wasn’t the first film enough to establish that Pooh is past the point of any help? Knowing the truth definitely makes things worse for Chris, but I don’t think he had any other choice but to put down the thing which once used to be his sibling. Especially after Pooh terrorized his girlfriend and then killed his parents in the worst possible manner (thankfully the kid managed to survive), Chris had to take care of Pooh.

Meanwhile, Tigger going total bonkers at the rave party was a delightful thing to witness for the gore fans and that has to be the coolest sequence of the entire film! By the time Chris reaches the party, Tigger has massacred everyone and Pooh also takes his leaves. It’s only fitting that the final showdown between Chris and Pooh happens in the woods, near Billy’s grave. Not much happens though, other than Chris calling out Pooh by his real name – Billy, and then chopping the bear’s head in two with an ax. But with the third film in the pipeline already, we know for a fact that Pooh is gonna be resurrected and come back even more menacing. In fact, the credit scene shows that Owl, who was surprisingly sidelined during the climax, and Tigger are already on the task. They make it very much clear that Christopher Robin is their no. 1 enemy and they’re not gonna leave him in peace.
