Storyline

Dave has decided to get over his recent breakup by seeking refuge in his nephew Felix, accompanying him on a school trip, among other things, to be able to get closer to one of the teachers, Miss Caroline.

Highly Enjoyable Zombedy With Equal Amounts of Black & Feel-Good Comedy
11 October 2019 | by TwistedContentSee all my reviews

I think it's true that this could be the most enjoyable zombie comedy since "Shaun of the Dead", there are as many great bits of black comedy as there are those of the feel-good kind. While the laughs do come from familiar places, a lot of factors, including the two leads, makes the movie very worthwhile.

"Little Monsters" is a fast paced, simple minded yet witty zombedy adventure. It starts off a lot like a black comedy, lots of crude but actually funny jokes, no zombies yet & Alexander England gets introduced as the first of two highly enjoyable leads. The other is a quickly rising favorite of mine - Lupita Nyong'o, who has established herself as a strong presence on screen in both darkly serious and comedic roles/movies. I hope she sticks around the horror genre, because she would be missed in the community. As the story unravels, the comedy continues, but shifts slowly, showing off moments both sweet and scary. Quite a few feel-good, sweet sequences and I had no choice but to root for our heroes. Even all the kids did their best thing, adorable little creatures. I'm happy to say that aesthetically & technically "Little Monsters" is very well done, vibrant, playful and bloody. I've found that it's quite easy for a good comedy to make you sport the rose colored glasses, because they are undeniably very entertaining and can steal your heart sometimes - this excuse is the intro for me stating that I can't pick on this movie much, it was a wild and awesome ride. Some flaws I noticed were, for example, a drop in pacing around the middle part of the movie, the afore mentioned familiriaty of the concept, jokes, flow, structure, but all that didn't stand in the way of "Little Monsters" being a blast.

Not a lot of great zombedies nowadays, maybe even less than once a year a solid one comes around, so I encourage You to pick this up, get into the couch and enjoy the adventure. My rating: 8/10
