Movie Info

Little Monsters follows Dave (Alexander England), a washed-up musician who volunteers to chaperone his nephew's kindergarten class field trip after taking a serious liking to the fearless schoolteacher, Miss Caroline (Lupita Nyong'o). Dave's intentions are complicated by the presence of the world's most famous kids' show personality and competition for Miss Caroline's affections, Teddy McGiggle (Josh Gad). One thing none of them bargained for, however, is a sudden zombie outbreak. Will Dave rise to the occasion and have a chance at Miss Caroline's heart, or will the zombies get there first?

  • This is well-worked territory for horror and horror-comedy, but Forsythe makes it work.

  • Miss Caroline makes for a kickass heroine & really ought to be the protagonist. Sadly, this is all about Dave, with the other characters, not to mention the armies of walking dead, feeling like mere foils to our main man's arc from kidult to carer.

  • Is this Bergman? Fellini? George Romero? No, but it's alarmingly fun (and profane, and gory) and Ms. Nyong'o is a delight.

    Oct 10, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Forsythe nails a handful of funny juxtapositions, but too often leans into mean-spirited and tired yuks.

    Oct 10, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The charismatic Nyong'o is easily the best part of this feeble Australian horror comedy...

    Oct 10, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Just when this movie seems like a total write-off though, Lupita Nyong'o shows up, playing a preternaturally cheerful, zombie-fighting kindergarten teacher. And all's well.

Audience Reviews for Little Monsters

  • Oct 23, 2019
    Writer/director Abe Forsythe asks the cinematic question: how to keep a bevy of little cherubic ones safely ensconced in the magic bubble of childhood in the midst of a zombie apocalypse? Intentions are good and meant to be laugh-out-loud funny but the results sometimes don't feed the need. Nyong'o and Gad bring the big guns though. Not bad.
