As strong as Little Monsters' final scenes may be, they still can't make up for how weak the rest of the movie is.

Lupita Nyong'o gives a terrific, standout performance that ultimately elevates this average zombie comedy.

[Little Monsters] plastered a grin on my face for 90 minutes ... this is a comedy I full-heartedly recommend.

"Little Monsters" has laughs, some romance and even a kiss with a nuclear explosion in the background. It defines good time, even as it brings back zombies for another face off onscreen.
October 13, 2019
One of the best comedies of the year, Little Monsters is an enjoyable showcase of Lupita's talents. While it doesn't offer much in terms of horror, it makes up for it with the heart and humor.
October 12, 2019
For how freely the blood flows, in and of itself one of the main draws of the zombie genre, there's a warmth to Little Monsters that gives it a fresh feeling.
October 12, 2019
You'll enjoy "Little Monsters" much more if you succumb to its slow-moving rhythm rather than willing both children and zombies to hurry up. And Lupita Nyong'o is superb.

[T]he film has some great moments, mostly centered on Miss Caroline kicking ass and the kids being kids. But there's too much emphasis on shock value humor... and there isn't quite enough poking fun at the genre to make it a savvy send up.

The movie offers nothing new to the zom-com sub-subgenre, but has just enough solid laughs to warrant a watch.
October 11, 2019
It's a terrific little film that deserves to become a cult favourite.
October 11, 2019
It's not the first zombie comedy, but its comic sensibility and sincere approach to characterization makes it unique and massively entertaining.
October 11, 2019
Is this Bergman? Fellini? George Romero? No, but it's alarmingly fun (and profane, and gory) and Ms. Nyong'o is a delight.
October 10, 2019
Little Monsters is the feel good, zombie horror comedy, that we all deserve this year.
October 10, 2019
Forsythe nails a handful of funny juxtapositions, but too often leans into mean-spirited and tired yuks.
October 10, 2019
The charismatic Nyong'o is easily the best part of this feeble Australian horror comedy...
October 10, 2019
Overly broad as a rom-zom-com and surprisingly low on quality gore, Little Monsters nevertheless succeeds as a zany, genre-tinged character comedy.
October 9, 2019
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.
October 9, 2019
[Little Monsters] doesn't really break a lot of ground, but it does poke a lot of fun in the zombie genre.
October 9, 2019
But Little Monsters, which is at times both completely unhinged and absolutely delightful, doesn't feel like a typical Hollywood zombie film. It focuses more on the characters than the fact that zombies exist.
October 9, 2019
Nyong'o completely steals the show - and stops the premise running out of steam...
