First this is all about monsters and any kind of supernatural .After going to a new small town,the teenager boy Zach Cooper (Dylan Minnette) he meets the beautiful girl, Hannah (Odeya Rush), living right next door. But every silver lining has a cloud, and Zach's comes when he learns that Hannah has a mysterious dad who is revealed to be R. L. Stine (Jack Black), the author of the bestselling Goosebumps series.

Zach unintentionally unleashes the monsters from their manuscripts and they begin to terrorize the town, it's suddenly up to Stine, Zach, Hannah, and Zach's friend Champ (Ryan Lee) they all do their best to back all of the monsters in the book.
The Wagoneer prominently displays a sun/moon roof during the mantis attack, but just a few minutes later when it is flipped over in the supermarket parking lot, it clearly does not have this accessory. See more »
When I saw the trailer for Goosebumps I was intrigued in ways which would remind me of stories I would watch as a child rummaging through my thoughts of delightful young fantasies.
Goosebumps is exactly what you would expect to see in a fiction and fantasy based feature. Something which was not only unadulterated but contained enough joy in it to remind one of their child hood(albeit they were from the 90's era).
I enjoyed the way the story was woven around R.L.Stein's monsters. As a child when I stayed in the States for a year I would indulge myself in the "Goosebumps" books. I was not expecting a visual extravaganza but nonetheless I expected this movie to be a heart warming, child friendly rendezvous with scary monsters who were just right enough to scare a child but in a harmless way which was both fun and entertaining.
Jack Black helps in retaining the core of the movie with this goofy and wacky self. I hardly found a boring minute in the film and my wife thoroughly enjoyed it as well.
I would rate it 8 stars and recommend anyone to see it. Its a good feature with all the essential ingredients thrown in it.
