In the family-friendly gateway to young horror fans, "Little Monsters is the story of Brian (Fred Savage), a sixth-grader who’s recently moved to a new town and made friends with Maurice (Howie Mandel) — the monster who lives under Brian's bed! Maurice introduces Brian to the world of monsters, where junk food rules, adults aren’t allowed, and the fun and games never end. But when Brian's brother is kidnapped, it’s time for Brian to get serious and fight the monsters on their turf in this zany cult favorite."

In the Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters) produced film, "The residents of a suburban high-rise apartment building are being infected by a strain of parasites that turn them into mindless, sex-crazed fiends out to infect others by the slightest sexual contact."
Both Little Monsters and Shivers will join the Vestron Video Collector's Series on September 15th, 2020.
