Lupita Nyong’o, fresh from the success of Jordan Peele’s Us, returns to the screens in another brilliantly inventive horror comedy.
A washed-up musician (Alexander English) volunteers to chaperone his nephew’s kindergarten class field trip after taking a liking to the fearless schoolteacher, Miss Caroline (Lupita Nyong’o). Dave’s intentions are complicated by the presence of the world’s most famous kids’ show personality and competition for Miss Caroline’s affections, Teddy McGiggle (Josh Gad), not to mention the sudden outbreak of zombies.
Somewhere between Shaun of the Dead and Kindergarten Cop, award-winning writer/director Abe Forsythe’s inventive mix of horror, comedy and musical numbers is a welcome addition to the world of genre mixing.
