Trivia

Not only is Mr. Black played by the real Stine. He is also the new drama teacher in reference to Jack Black being an actor. Same for the character Stine being the new English teacher. 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

Zach Cooper: She's locked in this house and her dad's a psychopath.
Champ: Does she have a friend?

Strictly for kids and teens
24 January 2016 | by sunny oneSee all my reviews

If I was 10 years younger and perhaps 10 IQ points dumber I would loved loved this movie. This takes me back to those Nickoledian days, particularly their famous show "Are you afraid of the dark" where a group of kids would come together before midnight to tell scary stories to each other and stories of monsters coming out of books were among the most popular; so this entire movie could have fit like an extended episode in the series.

Intellectually and emotionally this is at the level of high school with the classic high school tropes: young kid moves to a new school, falls in love with a weird girl, geeky virgin wants to get laid so desperately tries to be his friend, oh and there is high school prom. Of course with the major difference that a universe of monsters from the Goosebumps series have been accidentally unleashed on the town, and are going to crash that prom night.

Technically, a well polished movie with good monster effects work, but which is becoming run of the mill stuff now in your typical Hollywoood teenie pic.
