With a little over a week to go until the release of The Mean One, the first trailer has arrived online for director Steven LaMorte’s unofficial horror parody of Dr. Seuss’ classic children’s story How the Grinch Stole Christmas, which stars Terrifier 2‘s David Howard Thornton as the murderous green-skinned grump who reigns terror on the citizens of Newville; check out the trailer below…
In the audacious new parody, The Mean One (Terrifier 2‘s David Howard Thornton) is a hairy, green-skinned grump in a Santa suit, living on a mountain high above the town of Newville, despising the holiday season. Young Cindy You-Know-Who (Krystle Martin), whose parents were butchered by The Mean One twenty Christmases earlier, is returning to town to seek closure… but when the Mean One launches a new reign of terror that threatens to destroy Christmas, Cindy finds a bold new purpose – trapping and killing the monster.
Along with David Howard Thornton, the cast of The Mean One includes Chase Mullins, John Bigham, Erik Baker, Flip Kobler, and Amy Schumacher.
The Mean One is set for release on December 9th.
