‘The Mean One’: The Grinch Horror Movie Planned to Release in December
This holiday season, the Grinch’s blood-red Santa Claus coat is not the only thing that will be red. In XYZ Films’ new parody horror movie, which is based on a classic children’s book by Dr. Seuss, the hairy green lousy guy is back and ready to kill.
The title of “The Mean One” comes from the song “You are a Mean One, Mr. Grinch,” which was first sung by Thurl Ravenscroft in the 1966 animated TV special “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!” The story of the famous Grinch is retold in “The Mean One” by taking out all the childish fun and replacing it with a violent plot that ends in piles of blood-stained snow.
If Dr. Seuss’s original Grinch was as soft as a cactus and as charming as an eel, then director Steven LaMorte‘s The Mean One (David Howard Thornton) sounds like someone Cindy (Krystle Martin) might need to fight off with a 39-and-a-half-foot pole.
The IMDb page for the movie says, “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.”
“But when the ravenous, Christmas-hating creature begins to terrorize the town and threatens to ruin the holiday, she finds a new purpose — trapping and killing the monster.” Does “ravenous” mean that The Mean One does not eat chicken or turkey for “roast beast” but instead eats his victims after he kills them? It seems likely.

But now that Cindy You-Know-Who, a play on the name Cindy Lou Who, wants revenge, the serial killer might finally be stopped.
