'Little Monsters' Was A Creepy Fever Dream Disguised As A Children's Film

The 1989 film Little Monsters is about a kid named Brian who befriends Maurice, the monster who lives under his bed. The pair pranks Brian's classmates and gets revenge on the school bully. Everything isn't fun and games, though. There are plenty of disturbing moments in Little Monsters, hardly making it the family film it claims to be.

Though the movie is similar in concept to Monsters, Inc., Little Monsters is undeniably one of the scariest selections in children's cinema. From the innuendos to the dark references to abuse, this fever dream of a film isn't easy to watch.
