Childhoods have already been ruined with Winnie The Pooh’s horrifying transformation in Blood and Honey, a horror film adaptation following the residents of the Hundred Acre Wood years after Christopher Robin abandoned them.

Now, a terrifying Bambi slasher flick is reportedly on its way.

According to reports, the team behind Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey are now creating Bambi: The Reckoning.

While plot details haven’t yet been announced, production is set to begin early next year, and spoilers have already suggested the dark storyline will follow the beloved deer on a revenge hunt after the tragic death of his mother.

Speaking to Dread Central, Scott Jeffrey, who is said to be directing the film, revealed: ‘The film will be an incredibly dark retelling of the 1928 story we all know and love.

‘Finding inspiration from the design used in Netflix’s The Ritual, Bambi will be a vicious killing machine that lurks in the wilderness.

According to the publication, Scott will be working alongside producer Rhys Frake-Waterfield, who directed Blood and Honey.

This comes after Rhys announced that he’s working on a dark version of Peter Pan, titled Neverland Nightmare.

Like Peter Pan and Winnie The Pooh, as of earlier this year, Bambi has entered the public domain, so can be reworked into as many imaginative ways as you can think of.

After the horror that was Blood and Honey, which sees a feral Piglet and Pooh, we’re not sure we want our childhoods to be ruined once again…
