Greg is having fun taking pictures with the cool instant camera he found in the Coffman's spooky, old house... until he realizes that the pictures are not what he shot. Instead, they portray horrible disasters involving whoever or whatever is in them. The scariest part is that the disasters start to come true! Can this camera predict the future? Or does it actually cause bad things to happen? The only one who knows the truth is Spidey, the strange, dark man who seems to be stalking Greg. Can Greg return the camera to its rightful owner before the next awful prediction comes true? Or will his fate be frozen on film forever? Written by Anonymous

Kids see accidents develop into something worse.
26 July 2013 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

This particular episode of Goosebumps is a bit of a treat for two reasons. First, the main premise is a very good one, even if it's something that we've all seen a variation of many times in the past. Second, it has Ryan Gosling when he was a teeny tiny totie teen.

A few kids sneak into a building and pick up a device that looks like a camera. It also acts like a camera, with one big difference. The photos seem to show the future of those being photographed. And the future is usually not that good. Greg Banks (Gosling) has to convince people of just how dangerous the device is before too many people pose for a photo that may lead to their demise.

Directed by Ron Oliver, and adapted to the screen by Bruce Edwards, this is an episode full of easy pleasures. The young cast all do well - Gosling may not give signs of what a great actor he would become in his adulthood, but he's fine - and the "scare moments" in which the pictures are developed to show something unexpected are nicely spread throughout the 20+ minutes.

Brisk, fun and with one or two creepy scenes, this is definitely one of the better Goosebumps episodes, and perfect horror-lite fare for kids.
