Trivia

Early in the film, Zach and Champ break into the basement of R.L. Stine's home. They come across a cuckoo clock. This, of course, is a reference to the book 'The Cuckoo Clock of Doom' by R.L. Stine. See more »

Goofs

When Zach first enters Stine's Basement he is scared by a cuckoo. The cuckoo cuckoos four times but the hands on the clock show 2 o'clock. In R. L. Stine's 'The Cuckoo Clock of Doom', main character Michael Webster travels back in time and messes up the space-time continuum. See more »

Quotes

[from trailer]
Zach Cooper: [referring to Hannah's dad] He's a big teddy bear.

User Reviews

 
For anybody that is a Goosebumps fan, or will be after this movie.
26 October 2015 | by (United States) – 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.
