Red-Band Trailer for Lupita Nyong’o's Zombie Horror Comedy LITTLE MONSTERS
We’ve got a new Red-Band trailer to share with you for Lupita Nyong’o's zombie horror comedy Little Monsters. I had a chance to see this film at Sundance earlier this year and as I said in my review, this is one of the “silliest, most adorable, blood drenched, and vulgar zombie movies that I’ve seen.”
The story follows Dave (Alexander England), “a washed-up musician who volunteers to chaperone his nephew’s kindergarten class field trip after taking a serious liking to the fearless 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 (Josh Gad). One thing none of them bargained for, however, is a sudden zombie outbreak. Will Dave rise to the occasion and have a chance at Miss Caroline’s heart, or will the zombies get there first?”
For the most part I enjoyed the movie and it was a lot of fun to watch. One aspect of it that I didn’t like was Josh Gad’s character, Teddy McGiggle. While I like Gad and his work, I didn’t care for how his character was handled. He was just overly annoying and a lot of the vulgar comedy that his character spews is tasteless.
This movie is not for everyone. I can’t stress enough that it is filled with over the top vulgar comedy that I know some people won’t care for and, of course, there’s the insane blood and gore, which you will get a taste of in this trailer.
The movie was directed by Abe Forsythe and it will be released sometime this fall. Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!
