Trivia

For most stories directly based on an R.L. Stine book (not "Scareful What You Wish for" or "School Spirit", though the latter did share characters with "Full Moon Halloween", which was book-based, nor "Tangled Web" or "Four Eyes" which were inspired by certain ideas in "Liar Liar" and "Visitors", respectively), at least one character, usually a supporting character but occasionally a protagonist, had a name and often a gender switch. Most notably, the three main characters in "My Name is Evil" had initials that matched their book counterparts', but changed from girls to boys (the best friends dropping from triplets to a pair of friends who were probably not related).

The Ultimate Movie Review! - http://tss5078.blogspot.com
24 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really like going back and seeing how my favorite stars got their start. To be honest, I expected The Nightmare Room to be kind of lame, but it wasn't. It was written by R.L. Stein, for kids, but the stories are actually interesting and have some neat twists. I saw it as the PG version of Tales From The Crypt and I actually enjoyed it quite a bit. The stories range from evil tempers, to killer dolls, and even a story about what would happen if all a kids lies came true. Even early on Shia LaBeouf had an intensity about him and Tania Raymonde (Lost) had a quirkiness that you see in their future roles. The Nightmare Room isn't what I'd call scary, but I think kids will love it and unlike most children stories, I think many adults would enjoy this too.
