Little Monsters Reviews

What a jagged little gem.

This is well-worked territory for horror and horror-comedy, but Forsythe makes it work.

Miss Caroline makes for a kickass heroine & really ought to be the protagonist. Sadly, this is all about Dave, with the other characters, not to mention the armies of walking dead, feeling like mere foils to our main man's arc from kidult to carer.

Is this Bergman? Fellini? George Romero? No, but it's alarmingly fun (and profane, and gory) and Ms. Nyong'o is a delight.

Forsythe nails a handful of funny juxtapositions, but too often leans into mean-spirited and tired yuks.

The charismatic Nyong'o is easily the best part of this feeble Australian horror comedy...

Just when this movie seems like a total write-off though, Lupita Nyong'o shows up, playing a preternaturally cheerful, zombie-fighting kindergarten teacher. And all's well.

The stakes are never really life or death, even when they are, but writer-director Abe Forsythe has clearly taken his lessons from Shaun of the Dead, Zombieland, and other flesh-rotting comedy jewels of the genre.

Forsythe does an excellent job of balancing the various energies of his cast.

Its self-amusement is far more obvious than it is infectious.

The film is a hoot, and boasts unexpectedly rich character work...

Cinematically speaking, zombies have been done to death, but in this new comedy from Australian writer-director Abe Forsythe the gag is precisely how far the trope can be taken for granted.

Little Monsters may not live up to the Romero/Jackson films that influenced it, but it's a reasonably enjoyable zombie flick.

Nyong'o invests her teacher with such ferocious love, it's like she feared the Academy might see the film and retroactively revoke her statuette.

Little Monsters irreverently builds enough good will and comic energy in the early-going to carry it to its conclusion, so it's bound to gather a cult of some dimension.
