When Nyong'o is the focus the whole film steps up a notch - the scenes where she's protecting her students, either physically or by pretending the zombies are all playing a game, are easily the high point of the film
February 3, 2020
A bloody, curse-filled zombie romp with a surprising sweet side.
January 29, 2020
With any new zombie film there is a pressure to find a new angle and writer-director Abe Forsythe has definitely found it.
January 12, 2020
Despite Little Monsters' marketing of Lupita Nyong'o as headliner, she sees her screen time eroded by other characters.
December 11, 2019
A wholesome, earnest film whose energy comes from the interplay between childhood innocence and adult responsibility, and a consequent rejection of adolescent cynicism.

What a jagged little gem.

Nyong'o is the main reason to see Abe Forsythe's patchy film, an attempt to do Shaun of the Dead with added children.
November 17, 2019
Some of the gags work well, however - one in particular, involving a photograph - while Nyong'o's dazzling screen presence and the charming kids elevate this just above your typical zom-com.
November 15, 2019
This is well-worked territory for horror and horror-comedy, but Forsythe makes it work.
November 15, 2019
The trick of a zombie gross-out comedy is to balance extreme splatter, suspense and broad-strokes satire with a sweet nature and whimsy to take the edge off potential misanthropy. It's not an easy mix, but Little Monsters works like a charm.
November 14, 2019
cheerfully sweary and bloody
November 14, 2019
Little Monsters might be a good-natured if generic zombie comedy at first glance, but as a whole, it's more than it's undead parts.
November 13, 2019
the reason to see this is [Lupita] Nyong'o. A kind of zombie-killing version of Julie Andrews in a sunny yellow dress, the US star proves you can defeat anything with a positive attitude and some 'Tay Tay on your uke-y'
November 11, 2019
At heart, Little Monsters has a lot of heart.
November 11, 2019
Refreshingly, Little Monsters breathes fresh life into the genre whilst managing to be funny, crude and even heart-warming.
November 5, 2019
It's more humorous, heartfelt and satisfying than most of this ilk, with plenty of laughs and charm to spare. And frankly, I could watch Lupita Nyong'o dodging zombies on a loop for hours...
November 3, 2019
If you are in the mood for a charming zombie rom com where you also get to see Lupita Nyong'o kick butt and sing Taylor Swift, then Little Monsters is the right film for you.
October 31, 2019
Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong'o (12 Years a Slave) is clearly the best thing about Little Monsters.
October 31, 2019
Director Abe Forsythe leans into the crazy and milks the scenario for a sizeable quotient of laughs...Lupita Nyong'o puts in such a committed performance amidst all the low-budget mock-horror nonsense you'd think she was vying for a second Oscar.
October 30, 2019
Whatever possessed her to sign up for such a dippy romp, Lupita Nyong'o figuratively and literally kills it, slaying the undead with radiant aplomb.
