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?

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

  • Forsythe nails a handful of funny juxtapositions, but too often leans into mean-spirited and tired yuks.

  • The charismatic Nyong'o is easily the best part of this feeble Australian horror comedy...

  • 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.

  • The stakes are never really life or death, even when they are, but writer-director Abe Forsythe has clearly taken his lessons from Shaun of the Dead, Zombieland, and other flesh-rotting comedy jewels of the genre.

    Oct 8, 2019 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • Forsythe does an excellent job of balancing the various energies of his cast.
