The film follows Dave (England), a washed-up musician who volunteers to chaperone his nephew’s kindergarten class field trip after taking a shine to the plucky schoolteacher, Miss Caroline (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 (Gad). One thing none of them bargained for however, is a sudden zombie outbreak, from which Dave and Miss Caroline must protect the children. (synopsis via Coming Soon)
We all know zombie movies always have lots of brains.
That goes with the territory right? But what about a whole lot of heart, love true love, hilarity and a kickass heroine?
If that sounds like a too-good-to-be-true list, fear not (keep fearing the zombies though because that’s sensible) because Little Monsters is coming your way, packed with all kinds of fun things most zombie films, which are understandably a tad intense, fail to feature.
It looks like a quirky, hilarious hoot, very much in the vein of Shaun of the Dead and perhaps with a little Z Nation thrown in for good, manic, anarchic measure.
Little Monsters opens in US and UK on 15 November; it premiered in Australian at the Melbourne International Film Festival but there’s no Australian release date.
