YMMV: Little Monsters
  • Designated Hero: Brian, as Something Awful had noted in its review:
    reviewer: Brian, like most kids, finds himself getting into trouble that he should not be getting into; though later on we find out that he does things that he should be getting in trouble for.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: When the kids are scolded by their parents due to Brian and Maurice's pranks. Nobody was laughing, because of how harsh the scene was. It goes From Bad to Worse.
    • Who honestly thought this would be funny?
    • Worse, one of the kids looks disabled and another look around four. Unfortunate Implications ahoy...
  • Nightmare Fuel: The movie is relatively free of scary imagery, right up until the scene where Snik suddenly pulls a kid's head off his shoulders and tosses it in a basket.
    • The special award for this goes to Boy, the leader of the monsters. His human child form is creepy and unsettling all by itself but when his face comes off... *shudders*
  • One-Scene Wonder: Boy, the leader of the monsters, appears in the film at the last minute, but is one of the most memorable parts of it all the same due to how damn creepy he is.
  • Special Effect Failure:
    • The CG shooting stars occasionally flying around the monster world, which were added to try to make it look otherworldly, but failing.
      • It appears to be implied near the end (after they kill Snik) that the shooting stars are either the souls of the monsters or their energy.
    • Snik's wig slightly sliding up his head in one scene.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: The movie starts out as a kid exploring the world of monsters, it soon suffers from a case of severe Dude, Not Funny! pranks and humor.
  • What Do You Mean, It's for Kids?: Swearing, gory deaths, and verbal abuse. You know, for kids!
