A festival favorite over the past year, LITTLE MONSTERS is seeing general release in October, and a red-band trailer and trio of posters have been unveiled.

Hulu and Neon have teamed up to distribute LITTLE MONSTERS, with a one-night-only theatrical event on Tuesday, October 8 featuring an exclusive live-stream Q&A with writer/director Abe Forsythe and stars Lupita Nyong’o and Alexander England (tickets can be purchased here). The movie then begins streaming on Hulu Friday, October 11. The cast also includes Josh Gad, Kat Stewart and Diesel La Torraca; the synopsis: “Dave [England], a washed-up musician, volunteers to chaperone his nephew’s kindergarten field trip after taking a shine to the plucky schoolteacher, Miss Caroline [Nyong’o]. Dave’s intentions are complicated by the presence of world-famous child entertainer and competitor for Miss Caroline’s affections, Teddy McGiggle [Gad]. One thing none of them bargained for, however, is a sudden zombie outbreak, from which Dave and Miss Caroline must protect the children.”
