Dave has decided to get over his recent breakup by seeking refuge in his nephew Felix, accompanying him on a school trip, among other things, to be able to get closer to one of the teachers, Miss Caroline. Everything seems normal, at least until a zombie invasion breaks out that will threaten Dave’s plans. New horror movie icon Lupita Nyong’o nails it in this blend of comedy and gore.

User Reviews: Having nothing to do with the movie Little Monsters made 30 years ago starring Fred Savage and Howie Mandell, this movie tackles the subject of zombies. It’s niche: the fact that Lupita Nyong’o plays a school teacher projecting a class of five year olds from a zombie outbreak in the land down under. She has a little help form an Australian actor who I don’t know who plays the uncle of one of the kids. Josh Gad also has a role as a loveable children’s show host who a jerk in real life, and of course it comes out in full form as the zombies break out. It’s a unique niche as rarely do you see children so young in a zombie flick.
I find it hard to mess up a zombie movie. I’m sure I seen someone do it but I don’t remember. You can’t go wrong with having an Oscar winner as the lead in your zombie pic either. Never had Lupita look so beautiful than to watch her get covered in blood while battling the undead. There is nothing I disliked about this flick it was great!
