Editorial Reviews

Kind of a demented Monsters, Inc. meets Oliver Twist, the 1989 live-action film Little Monsters takes every child's nightmare of a monster under the bed and spins it into a dark tale of a secret underworld where children and adults turn into monsters and run wild without rules or any sense of social niceties. Maurice (Howie Mandel), the monster under Brian's (Fred Savage) bed, is not an average monster, but a hyper-talking, mischievous, blue-faced boy who disappears from inside his clothes when exposed to bright light and who says he wants nothing more than to be Brian's friend. As the new kid in town with parents who are constantly fighting, Brian is in desperate need of a friend and is easily lured into the underworld of the Little Monsters. There he learns to spy on his classmates as they sleep and raise havoc around their homes and lives. At first, his escapades make him insanely happy, but soon his exploits take a toll on his performance in school, his interaction with family, and his friendships with other kids. Brian eventually discovers that all is not quite as simple and free in the monster's world as it appears and that perhaps total freedom from societal rules isn't quite as good as it sounds. The pace of pranking is frantic in this film, the images can be disturbing, and some of the jokes, antics, and language are downright crude, so it's definitely not appropriate for children who are easily scared or those under age 10. --Tami Horiuchi

4.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Movie, With Powerful Imagination! February 15, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Have you ever wondered what goes on under your bed at night? Did you ever think for a second that there might be something living under your own bed? Well, this young boy, whom is played by Fred Savage, (the Wonder Years), soon discovers a whole knew world under his bed. He then meets this friendly young lookin' monster, named Maurice, helps him use his imagination and be able to do the impossible. If you're asking me, I think this film has so much imagination and wonders in it, anyone whose anyone, will enjoy this childlike fantasy. So, take my advise, buy this film, you won't regret it. Or you probably could catch it on cable. This is one magical movie that you could not miss!

4.0 out of 5 stars "Great 80's Kid Fantasy!" April 20, 2010
Fred Savage and Howie Mandel star in this 1989 fantasy.
A boy befriends a monster from a magical world under
his bed. I've loved this since I was a kid and so glad
to have it on dvd that has good picture and sound,
but only the trailer. I recommend this great 80's
kid fantasy.

This movie was amazing even though i am really mad that this movie didnt come on dvd, this film was about a kid that moves, and comes upon a friend late at night only he is a monster from under the bed. Well when word of this gets to the underworld(under the bed) the guys in charge try to trap brian(main character) down there until day where he eventually will become a monster, in order to do that they kidknap his brother. ...try and get this movie onto dvd its amazing and worth to be on it.
