I’m kinda stunned by how much I love this.
Most of the kids-plus-monsters movies I post about have the two sides opposing each other. That is, after all, the heart of Little Fears: kids fighting monsters. But the below film, A Monster Calls, is all about a boy who has a monster on his side. I won’t say anything more other than to implore you to watch the trailer below.
It’s based on Patrick Ness’s book of the same name. I plan to pick this one up immediately.
For you fans of Monsters and Other Childish Things, this fits so very well there too.
