An upcoming horror thriller titled Crackcoon is inspired by the success of Elizabeth Banks’ horror-comedy film Cocaine Bear, which was written and directed by Jimmy Warden.

Although not much is known about Crackcoon, it is rumored to be quite similar to Cocaine Bear, which was loosely based on the true account of Cocaine Bear, an American black bear who ate nearly 75 lb (34 kg) of lost cocaine. The producers of Crackcoon are crossing their fingers that their dark film will be as well received by critics and viewers as Cocaine Bear was.

Raccoon turns into a killing machine in Crackcoon 

The movie Crackcoon that is going to make it way for the audience after the success of Cocaine Bear will reportedly center on an innocent raccoon that transforms into a murderous machine and terrorizes the locals and campers of a mountain community after ingesting a synthetically altered street drug that a drug dealer on the run from the police dumped in the woods.

The official synopsis for the movie states, “When a synthetically-altered street drug is discarded in the woods by a drug dealer during a car chase with police, the fallout proves nothing less than horrific when an innocent raccoon eats it, transforming it into a nightmarish killing machine straight from the bowels of hell. With unsuspecting campers, tourists, and residents of a mountain community all in close proximity to the epicenter, no one is safe from the monster’s unrelenting rampage.”
