If you are looking for a for a zombie horror film that’s closer to Shaun of the Dead than World War Z, Little Monsters may be right up your alley. the new film starring Lupita Nyong’o, Josh Gad, and Alexander England tells the story of a troop of children who get caught up in the zombie apocalypse while on a field trip. Their teacher has to keep them all alive with the help of England’s character and a very unwilling Gad.
The trailer is a lot of fun. and almost feels like the perfect love child between The Walking Dead and Romper Room. I’m not sure I can give it a more ringing endorsement than that. Check out the trailer below and then see Little Monsters in theaters on November 15th.
LITTLE MONSTERS 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 (Lupita 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?
