I’m pretty sure the 1989 FRED SAVAGE film LITTLE MONSTERS hasn’t been brought up on Kindertrauma yet. I honestly can’t remember much about the plot anymore. Maybe I was too scared of the monstrous HOWIE MANDEL as a four year old to even watch the entire movie. I remember it was supposed to be a film for kids, but what were they thinking?
From what I recall, the climax of the film takes place in this perverted children’s playroom (always creepy), where the heroes are confronted by a child-like monster. Then they shoot something at his face, and it rips off, exposing a horribly disfigured face underneath. I think the idea was that the monster was just wearing a “human mask,” but to a four year old such as myself, it was as freaky as the end of RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK.
Who greenlights projects like this, anyway?
