In Heather Wixson's 4.5-star Sundance review, she wrote "there’s no doubt in my mind that Little Monsters is poised to be the breakout horror hit of 2019." At Sundance, Hulu and NEON acquired the film for US distribution, but in the meantime, Altitude Films released the official UK trailer for the movie that shows what happens when zombies invade a kindergarten field trip at the petting zoo.

You can watch the Little Monsters UK trailer below, and in case you missed it, read Wixson's Sundance interview with writer/director Abe Forsythe.

"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?"
