While there are plenty of very scary movies coming our way this Halloween, we're also being treated to a couple of horror comedies that are sure to please kids and adults alike. While Goosebumps promises to bring thrills to the big screen, Kids Vs Monsters has the home market covered. And if the trailer is any indication, this one will be in heavy rotation all throughout the fall.
Malcolm McDowell and Lance Henriksen lead a stellar cast that also includes Armand Assante, Adrian Paul, Christopher Atkins and Richard Moll in the fantasy horror-comedy, Kids Vs Monsters, available on Digital HD and On Demand September 29 from MarVista Digital Entertainment. Produced by Dark Dunes, directed by Sultan Saeed Al Darmaki and written by Sarah Daly, the film also features Francesca Fisher-Eastwood, Anna Akana, Sydney Endicott and Daniel David Stewart, among others.
The six richest people in the world, Damian Knight, Greg Lovett, Charles Chance, Francine Gingerfield, Maxine Fitmore and Cecilia Sealskin, each have one thing still dragging them down...Their intolerable kids. Luckily, there is a mysterious entity known as The Boss who with his assistant Heinrich (Henriksen) is happy to help. See, he has some monsters of his own, and they are just dying to test out their skills.
The parents arrange to drop their six troublesome kids, David Knight, Avatara Lovett, Candy Chance, Oliver Gingerfield, Bobby Fitmore and Molly Sealskin (Endicott), at one big creepy house attended to by The Butler. Havoc ensues as seven monsters, including Mr. Beet, take on the kids in a life or death showdown. Who will be left standing? It's Kids vs Monsters! The hilarious comedy will be available on Amazon, Google Play, iTunes, Vimeo and VUDU, as well as On Demand.
