Little Monsters (1989) – The Best Scene

The Best Scene series continues with a look at the climactic moments in the 1989 creature feature comedy Little Monsters

After taking a look back at House II: The Second Story (a favorite of mine since childhood), House of 1000 Corpses (which celebrated its 20th anniversary last year), the awesomeness of Tales from the Crypt Presents: Demon Knight, the leg smashing in the Stephen King adaptation Misery, three separate moments from John Carpenter’s Big Trouble in Little China, the “Jason vs. Tina” battle in Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood, the “all hell breaks loose” sequence from the start of Zack Snyder’s Dawn of the Dead remake, the opening sequence of Pitch Black, the “Burn” scene from The Crow (which not only turns 30 this year, but is also getting a new adaptation), and the farmhouse raid and ending chase sequences in High Tension, JoBlo’s own Lance Vlcek is continuing his The Best Scene video series with a look at the climactic moments in the 1989 creature feature comedy Little Monsters (watch it HERE). To hear all about it, check out the video embedded above!

Directed by Richard Alan Greenberg from a screenplay by Terry Rossio and Ted Elliott, Little Monsters has the following synopsis: Brian isn’t scared of the monster living under the bed. On the contrary, when he gets to know the wild-eyed boogeyman, Maurice, the pair become fast friends. During the night, Maurice takes his young charge into the netherworld of monsters, where they have a great time making mischief in the lives of sleeping children. But Brian’s opinion of Maurice and his freewheeling lifestyle changes when he discovers that he himself is turning into a monster.

The film stars Fred Savage, Howie Mandel, Daniel Stern, Margaret Whitton, Rick Ducommun, Frank Whaley, Ben Savage, William Murray Weiss, Devin Ratray, and Amber Barretto.
