Little Monsters

Fresh from Sundance is Little Monsters, an exhilarating entry in our Frida After Dark series!

After a rough breakup, directionless Dave (Alexander England) volunteers to chaperone the charming and enigmatic teacher Miss Caroline’s (Lupita Nyong’o) students in order to impress her. Unfortunately, things don’t go quite as planned when it turns out that not only is obnoxious children’s TV personality Teddy McGiggle (Patton Oswalt) shaping the excursion’s activities but a zombie invasion has jus broken out. 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.

A horror comedy that can only be described as Kindergarten Cop meets Zombieland, Little Monsters is a hilarious new take on the zombie movie.


“Forsythe does an excellent job of balancing the various energies of his cast.” – David Ehrlich, IndieWire

“But Little Monsters, which is at times both completely unhinged and absolutely delightful, doesn’t feel like a typical Hollywood zombie film. It focuses more on the characters than the fact that zombies exist.” – Tiffany Kelly, The Daily Dot

“The film is a hoot, and boasts unexpectedly rich character work…” – Kevin Maher, The Times
