LITTLE MONSTERS is a US horror comedy in which a teacher, a failed rockstar and a children's TV entertainer must join forces to protect a class of five year olds from a zombie outbreak.

Language

There is infrequent use of very strong language (‘c**t’), as well as frequent use of strong language (‘f**k’, ‘motherf**ker’). Milder terms include 'prick', 'dick', 'cock', 'pussy' and ‘bitch’. There is also infrequent use of discriminatory terms including 'retarded' and 'dyke', but the work as a whole does not condone discrimination.

Violence

Scenes of strong comic violence include gory zombie attacks and scenes in which zombies are shot or decapitated. There is a close-up image of a burst of blood and bodily tissue when a zombie is shot in the head. A zombie pulls out a man’s intestines and then tears away his cheek, exposing his bloody teeth and jawbone.

Injury detail

Further gory images include sight of bloodied corpses - both human and animal - and of zombies eating internal organs and severed limbs.

Sex

There are occasional crude verbal sex references. Another sequence features brief breast nudity, when a child interrupts a couple having sex. There are also two scenes of masturbation, without strong visual detail.

Threat and horror

People, including young children, are menaced by herds of zombies, resulting in sustained comic threat. Several people are attacked and killed, but no children die on screen.

There is brief sight of a man using a bong
