Did You Know?


Was re-aired on February 28, 1998 to precede the episode based on its sequel, "Say Cheese and Die...Again". Because of when the sequel book was published, they were the only two related Goosebumps episodes not to air back-to-back as a cliffhanger or even feature the same actors portraying the characters due to their aging in the intervening two years.

When Joey and Mickey are walking down the street and Greg and Bird see them, Bird says Mickey's last name as "Knotts" when addressing him. However, in the credit sequence, Mickey's name has been changed to "Ward" (Stine's original name for him in the book). See more »

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.
