Katharine Isabelle's career may find her taking on material that is all over the genre map, but she has always kept one foot firmly planted in the world of horror. From her early days appearing on Goosebumps and The X-Files to Disturbing Behavior and Freddy vs. Jason, this actress has shown her allegiance to horror...even though she admits she can't watch horror films herself.
Isabelle captured our attention in a big way with American Mary, a film by Jen and Sylvia Soska that served as a starring vehicle for the actress. She was front and center, pushing herself in ways we had not seen before.

CAA has signed The Giver’s Odeya Rush, The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned. She was previously with Gersh. The Israel-born actress played Fiona, the female lead in the recent Weinstein Co. drama, a role that was expanded from Lois Lowry’s original novel. At the Teen Choice Awards last month, she received the Olay Fresh Effects Breakout Star Award for the part.

Stine (Jack Black), whose fictional monsters are accidentally unleashed in

R.L. Stine doesn’t exactly sympathize with victims in horror movies. “When I go to a movie or something, and the shark jumps up on the screen and eats the girl, I’m the one in the theater who’s laughing,” the Goosebumps author tells EW. “Horror always makes me laugh.”
Something else that makes Stine laugh? Mostly Ghostly: Meet My Ghoulfriend, a film based on Stine’s Mostly Ghostly book series that coms to DVD Sept. 2. In the movie, Max (Ryan Ochoa) plays a teenage boy who’s trying to impress his crush (Bella Thorne) but faces an otherwordly obstacle: The Berserker Ghoul, »

Great news for tween readers, bad news for teenagers in Shadyside, Ohio. R.L. Stine is bringing Fear Street back, which means even more dead teenagers in the never quiet town and a whole new generation of readers who’ll stay up late to finish their book and then be too terrified to fall asleep. Six new books will hit bookstores starting in September with Party Games (I’m guessing most of the games end in death, so don’t play).
I was never into Goosebumps, but I read most of the Fear Street series as a kid. My favorite was the 99 Fear Street trilogy, because after so many teens were killed by the house, why would you return to it to film a movie? And why would you play your older sister, who was one of the teens who died, in said movie? Nonsensical in the best way. Anyway, I »

Chicago – Once Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep are locked into a film about a society that limits its emotions and memories, how do you find the teenage actors to play opposite them? Australian Brenton Thwaites, and Israeli-born Odeya Rush passed the audition, and they join the Oscar winners in the adaptation of “The Giver.”
The popular book series sold 10 million copies in the 1990s, and it deals with a society that has comfort and order, but little emotion or memories. Brenton Thwaites portrays Jonas, who accepts his assigned job as “Receiver of Memories” and begins a journey with the current Receiver, portrayed by Jeff Bridges. Oyeda Rush is Fiona, one of the community who starts to have feelings that Jonas wants her to act on, and they are both seen as threats to the society by the Chief Elder (Meryl Streep).

I read and owned something like 55-60 Goosebumps books growing up. I probably would have only made it though a few of them, though, had the stories been as jacked up as these classic horror films that have been reimagined as books from R.L. Stine’s popular children's book series. The covers and blurbs from designer Theodore Holmstead-Scott and writer Jude Deluca do a perfect job of making these stories seem much tamer than they really are.
We’ve included some of our favorites below, but be sure to check out the many more covers they’ve created on their Tumblr, If It Were Stine. They also reimagine modern horror films and TV shows, and even model video games on the choose-your-own-adventure-type books from the Goosebumps series.
By the time the television series based on these books came out, I had already outgrown them. I »

The big screen adaptation of R. L. Stine’s Goosebumps series may not be on our screens until summer 2015, but you can check out how the movie’s shaping up with five film stills.
Jack Black stars as author R. L. Stine, who uses his books to keep monsters locked away from his imagination. Unfortunately, by the looks of the promo pics, they’ve got out. You can check the images out below – the ventriloquist, vampires and Egyptian royalty all feature.
The story follows Zach (Dylan Minnette) when he moves to a new town and buddies up with R. L. Stine’s daughter, Hannah (Odeya Rush). Having sold over 350 million copies across the globe, Goosebumps is hopefully going to stay true to its fans.

Based on the Nickelodeon TV show of the same name from the 90s, the new cinematic iteration of Goosebumps stars Jack Black, who re-teams with his Gulliver’s Travels director Rob Letterman for another spooky (yet kid-friendly) horror tale. This particular story sees a young kid team up with the niece of young adult horror author R.L. Stine (creator of the Goosebumps series) after the writer’s imaginary demons are set free on the town of Greendale, Maryland.
Check out the first, frankly awesome, first images from the film below. Goosebumps is set for release August 2015.

Bummed that you weren't able to attend this past weekend's San Diego Comic-Con, where all sorts of tidbits were revealed about the upcoming Goosebumps? Well, have no fear because Columbia Pictures has just provided us with all the highlights in the form of two must-watch videos.
In the film, directed by Rob Letterman, Black portrays famed children's horror writer R.L. Stine, whose monsters, it turns out, are actually real. When they escape from his books and attack an unsuspecting town, it's up to Stine and two teens to get the monsters back into their stories. »

Jack Black channeled iconic horror author R.L. Stine at Comic-Con yesterday, bringing his gruesomely funny Goosebumps to Hall H, where he showed off the first footage from this comic horror caper. We have highlights from the panel, as well as an interview with Jack Black and director Rob Letterman, whom he reunites with after working together on 2010's Gulliver's Travels.
In Goosebumps, upset about moving from a big city to a small town, teenager Zach Cooper finds a silver lining when he meets the beautiful girl, Hannah, living right next door. But every silver lining has a cloud, and Zach's comes when he learns that Hannah has a mysterious dad who is revealed to be R. L. Stine, the author of the bestselling Goosebumps series. It turns out that there is a reason why Stine is so strange... he is a prisoner of his own imagination - the monsters »
This year at San Diego Comic-Con, Sony, a company that controls the rights to the "Amazing Spider-Man" (and all of its off-shoots, like the forthcoming "Sinister Six" movie), instead chose a more low-key approach. Instead of the cavernous Hall H, they rented out a ballroom at the Hilton down the street, and instead of your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, funnyman Jack Black was the star of the show. Black is the star of the new "Goosebumps" movie -- a movie that looks like a ton of spooky-funny fun!
In the "Goosebumps" movie, Black actually plays the author of the original books, R.L. Stine. The basic plot, as outlined in the first trailer that we were shown, is that all of the creepy monsters and ghouls that populate his beloved novels (novels that typified the Ya craze before there was even a Ya craze). Honestly, it seems like the perfect way to »

In Goosebumps, arriving in theaters next summer, Jack Black plays a semi-fictionalized version of R.L. Stine, prolific author of the Beloved Goosebumps book series. In the film, Stine finds his creature creations escaped from the pages of his books and must find a way to return them before they wreak havoc on his small Maryland town. Goosebumps also stars Odeya Rush, Jillian Bell, Amy Ryan, Ken Marino, Dylan Minette, and Ryan Lee. Director Rob Letterman was on hand at Comic-Con to give fans an early look at some footage and talk about his approach to the film. Before his panel we sat down for an exclusive interview. He talked about the challenge of making of age-appropriate horror film, why Jack Black was the perfect man for the part, how they decided which of Stine's many monsters to include, bringing Slappy the dummy to life, and more. Check out what he »

Earlier this week we got our first look at Jack Black in the big screen feature film inspired by R.L. Stine's children's horror book series, Goosebumps. We have three more images for you to check out today, one of which features that creepy-ass ventriloquist doll, and a few other creatures that may look familiar to you! Sony Pictures recently had a panel for this film at Comic-Con. I wasn't able to be there, but I heard that a lot of the audience members were pleasantly surprised by what they saw from the movie. I was hoping this would be good, and it sounds like it might just be.
