From the makers of two of the most innovative animations in the past few years – Paranorman and Coraline – comes a new adventure based on Alan Snow’s renowned children’s novel Here Be Monsters.

A young boy raised by underground cave-dwelling trash collectors, tries to save his friends from an evil exterminator – in this enigmatic tale that has been a hit at the UK box office.

Featuring the voices of Maleficent’s Elle Fanning, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Toni Collette and Ben Kingsley, this is one for both the young ‘uns and adults alike – with clever comedic touches that were prevalent in the makers’ previous outings.
