    Hulu acquired the well-reviewed horror comedy Little Monsters out of Sundance, and will be premiering it on their streaming platform on October 11th!

    If you want to catch it on the big screen, there will be a one night theatrical Fathom event on October 8th.

    I was hoping for a remake of the Fred Savage 1989 classic!! I think I rented that tape 97 times.

    I watched this last night on Hulu and thought it was a total charmer. The plot is maybe stretched a little too thin over 90-minutes, but it's surprisingly sweet throughout and has a heart-warming ending that will leave a huge smile on your face. They're selling this as Lupita's movie, but it really belongs to Alexander England.

    The sole weak-link here is Josh Gad, who not only gives one of the worst performances of the year, but is so horrifically miscast. He feels like he's in a different movie from everyone else. They needed to cast a character actor, and perhaps someone a little older. Someone like Eddie Izzard would have been perfect.

    In spite of Gad, the movie is highly recommended.
