The Mean One Release Date, Cast, Plot & All We Know So Far
This holiday season, there will be more than just the blood-red Santa Claus coat worn by The Grinch. In the latest parody horror film from XYZ Films, the hairy green villain from Dr. Seuss’s beloved children’s tale makes a terrifying return.
The song “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch,” originally performed by Thurl Ravenscroft in the 1966 animated TV special “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!,” inspired the title of the film “The Mean One,” which retells the legend of the infamous Grinch by removing all the childish whimsy and substituting a gruesome plot that leads to mounds of blood-stained snow.
According to the IMDb page for the movie, “In a sleepy mountain town, Cindy [You-Know-Who] has her parents murdered and her Christmas stolen by a blood-thirsty green figure in a red Santa suit — The Mean One.”
Dr. Seuss’s original Grinch was as cuddly as a cactus and as charming as an eel, it sounds like David Howard Thornton’s The Mean One is someone Cindy (K But she discovers a new goal: trapping and killing the monster when the hungry, anti-Christmas creature starts terrorizing the community and threatens to destroy the holiday.
Does “ravenous” imply that The Mean One cooks his victims after they have been killed rather than using chicken or turkey as his “roast beast”? It seems probable. But the serial killer’s reign of terror might finally come to an end thanks to Cindy You-Know-Who, a pun on Cindy Lou Who.
