Who is in the mood for a new zombie comedy this year? Although there is no doubt that Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) is the most awaited title of the subgenre, the release of the first trailer for Little Monsters (2019) certifies that there is another zombies flick able to produce a good dosage of laughs. In it, a washed-up musician teams up with a teacher and a kids show personality to protect young children from a sudden outbreak of zombies.
After a rough breakup, directionless Dave crashes at his sister’s place and spends his days expanding his young nephew’s questionable vocabulary. When an opportunity arises to chaperone an upcoming school excursion alongside the charming and enigmatic teacher Miss Caroline, Dave jumps at the chance to impress her. What he wasn’t anticipating was Teddy McGiggle, an obnoxious children’s television personality who shapes the excursion’s activities. What he was expecting even less was a zombie invasion, which unfolds after an experiment at a nearby military base goes awry. Armed only with the resourcefulness of kindergartners, Dave, Miss Caroline and Teddy must work together to keep the monsters at bay and carve a way out with their guts intact.
Little Monsters (2019) has been written and directed by Abe Forsythe, an awards winner filmmaker thanks to his previous film Down Under (2016) and a wide list of short films. Lupita Nyong’o, Josh Gad, Stephen Peacocke, Kat Stewart, Nadia Townsend, Alexander England, Marshall Napier, Henry Nixon, Rahel Romahn, Jason Chong, Diesel La Torraca, and Felix Williamson are the main stars of the film.
Little Monsters (2019) had its world premiere this year at Sundance Film Festival. Shortly after, Neon and Hulu acquired the distribution rights of the film. This season it has also been part of the line-up in festivals like South by Southwest Film Festival, Imagine Film Festival, and Fantasia International Film Festival. It is scheduled to be released in United Kingdom and Ireland on November 15.
