The Little Bastard is an upcoming American black comedy film written and directed by Dawson Joyce. The film is a satire of two popular Hollywood trends from the 1990's: light-hearted family comedies that rely heavily on slapstick, and disturbing psychological horror films about children who turn out to be violent psychopaths.
While left home alone for the weekend, a bright-eyed and mischievous young boy born to obscene wealth and privilege must defend his prestigious family estate from thieves, who all underestimate just how much of a bloodthirsty monster he turns out to be. Their job should've just been a quick in and out, but when put up against the little bastard, they don't stand a chance.
