Fun time for the whole family!
12 November 2015 | by ldbellhaydenSee all my reviews

I took my entire family to see this movie, and I was actually pleasantly surprised at how good it was. Everything about this screamed, remake of a property from the past, a washed up actor as one of the lead, etc., 'terrible movie', but I'm really glad that they actually made this quite well. I'd say if you need a movie for all ages then Goosebumps is your best best this fall/winter besides Peanuts and Good Dinosaur.

I'm not going to say goosebumps is a perfect movie though, I mean a lot of the main plot points are clichés, and while I liked Black's performance because I thought it was over the top crazy (which he does quite well), others might not find it as amusing. Overall definitely a movie to check out! I watched the Goosebumps cartoon as a kid, and I'm happy to say this is better than previous iterations of R.L. Stein's Goosebumps
