Trivia

Upon seeing the giant preying mantis, R.L. Stine worriedly claims he doesn't remember writing about it in one of his books. The book the giant mantis appears in is "A Shocker on Shock Street". Ironically, the book refers to "Shock Street" as a series of movies ala "Elm Street". See more »

For anybody that is a Goosebumps fan, or will be after this movie.
26 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

The Goosebumps book series where a big sellers in the 90's, so was the T.V. series, which was The Twilight Zone for preteens. R.L. Stine proves he had a creative mind with such bizarre tales and some insane plot twist. So having some of the Goosebumps characters come alive in the real world, is quite a tribute to R.L. Stine's work.

Jack Black is quite enjoyable, seems to having the most fun has Stine, at times he is a little over the top, but in a good way. Odeya Rush is good has Hannah. But it's Dylan Minnette and Ryan Lee who play Zach and Champ, really bring the comedy here, those two have such comedic chemistry they are like a comedy team. The effects are incredible, an amusing CGI fest. The movie never takes itself seriously, if you like The Monster Squad(1987), so I'll bet you'll get an good ride out of Goosebumps.
