ALTITUDE RELEASES TWO NEW CHARACTER POSTERS TO SUPPORT THE UK & IRISH RELEASE OF LITTLE MONSTERS.
STARRING ACADEMY AWARD® WINNER LUPITA NYONG’O, FROM 12 YEARS A SLAVE AND US, FROZEN’S JOSH GAD, AND ALIEN: COVENANT’S
RELEASED IN UK & IRISH CINEMAS
FROM 15 NOVEMBER
On 15 November 2019, Lupita Nyong’o, fresh from the success of Jordan Peele’s Us, returns to the screens in another brilliantly inventive and fantastically entertaining horror comedy, LITTLE MONSTERS - but this time with laughs and musical numbers! Also starring Josh Gad (Olaf from Frozen) and Alexander England (Alien: Covenant), this is the funniest zombie horror since Shaun of the Dead, bolstered by a knowing self-awareness and an uproarious script.
Little Monsters follows Dave (Alexander England), as 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 zombies get there first?
Described as a ‘must-see horror comedy’ by We Got This Covered, and ‘an amusing thrill-ride’ by Screen International, Sundance Hit LITTLE MONSTERS is a smart, sharp and deliciously gruesome zom-com that will appeal to fans of the Zombieland films, What We Do in the Shadows and Happy Death Day. Doused with a generous helping of absurdity, pitch-perfect timing, and a nifty blend of gore and wit, it’s a wild, frenetic ride.
Award-winning writer/director Abe Forsythe has struck gold with his cast - Lupita Nyong’o is currently the horror genre’s hot ticket, following her standout performance in Jordan Peele’s Us, which played no small part in making that film a box office smash this year. Josh Gad, famous for his loveable roles in Disney films Frozen and Beauty and the Beast, is on fabulous form here playing against type.
LITTLE MONSTERS comes from the production team behind cult chillers The Guest and You’re Next, and the 2016 Blair Witch remake (as well as the forthcoming reboot of Korean revenge thriller I Saw The Devil), with special effects from the Oscar-winning studio behind Mad Max: Fury Road. The film will be released in cinemas across the UK and Ireland by Altitude Film Entertainment.
LITTLE MONSTERS will premiere at the BFI London Film Festival from Saturday
Saturday 5th October. Please visit the film festival’s website for further information on screening dates and times.
LITTLE MONSTERS will also close Manchester’s Grimmfest on Sunday 6th October. Please visit the official festival website for further details.
