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. Everything seems normal, at least until a zombie invasion breaks out that will threaten Dave's plans. New horror movie icon Lupita Nyong'o nails it in this blend of comedy and gore.

Trivia

Originally, the producers couldn't get the rights to use Taylor Swift's "Shake it Off" in the film, as they were denied by the record label. Lupita Nyong'o is a big fan of the song and saw it as pivotal part of the screenplay, which led her to personally get in touch with Swift to explain why the song was important to her and the narrative, after which Swift granted her the rights.

Mediocre
6 October 2019 | by edfilmsukSee all my reviews

I'll keep it short and sweet. Little Monsters offered nothing we haven't all seen before.

I chuckled just once or twice in the entire film, while most of the audience (who were quite drunk) laughed hysterically at nothing.

Using an F-Bomb in every other line gets tiresome really quickly, and the joke that they're swearing in front of kids the whole time also got stale. The writing was generally poor.

I could go on for a lot longer, but it's just not really worth it.

Shaun of the Dead it ain't. Derivative it is.
