Trivia

Had to briefly delay filming in certain areas of New Orleans, LA in April 2014 due to the ongoing WrestleMania XXX (2014) festivities. See more »

Goofs

The werewolf was seen retreating as it lost all confidence being attacked by Champ ( at 01:16 min). So it is very much impossible for it to come back to attack the masses immediately after this. See more »

Quotes

Hannah: There you are. Are you okay? You look like you just saw a ghost.

For anybody that is a Goosebumps fan, or will be after this movie.
26 October 2015 | by DarkVulcan29See 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.
