Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey has found itself on the worst movies of all-time list on Rotten Tomatoes.

Currently ranked at Number 97 thanks to a 'Tomatometer' score of 4%, this blood-drenched reimagining of A. A. Milne's Hundred Acre Wood children's stories has horrified audiences ever since its first trailer dropped last summer.

Its universally-panned stablemates include Scary Movie 5 (4%), 2005 remake The Fog (4%), Speed 2: Cruise Control (4%) and Robert De Niro flop Godsend (4%).

It goes without saying that when Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey made its arrival in US cinemas last month, the critics really turned on it.

"The film feels half-written, and the half we got wasn't the good half," wrote The Wrap.

"Characters and storylines pop up out of nowhere, disappear into the ether, and almost all of them turn out to be pointless. Rules are established and broken. Up is down, cats are dogs, and a straight-to-VHS quality horror movie is somehow in theaters."

Polygon's review wasn't any kinder, either, with a snippet reading: "So straight-faced and unrelievedly grim that the audience is inevitably being set up to laugh at it instead of with it. There's no theme to Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey, no bigger idea at work, and barely even a story.

Despite all of this, though, the horror movie is not being deterred and already has a sequel in the bag!

A teaser poster released last month offers an ominous warning for what's to come in the next instalment, stating: "Friends will gather... to take their revenge."

Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey is currently airing in US and UK cinemas.
