Little Monsters (1989) Blu-ray: A fun childhood classic

Lionsgate / Vestron Video is releasing director Richard Greenberg’s fun family monster adventure flick, Little Monsters (1989) on Blu-ray. Stars Fred Savage, Howie Mandel.

Brian (Fred Savage) isn’t scared of the monster living under the bed. On the contrary, when he gets to know the wild-eyed boogeyman, Maurice (Howie Mandel), 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.

For a movie about monsters, this flick has a bit of heart.

Some of it is actually funny if you still have a little brattiness left in your Bratskeller.
