Trivia

Was originally going to be a film by DreamWorks Pictures in the 90's when they were starting and had their interactive studio distribute two Goosebumps PC games. But lost the rights to Sony Pictures when production failed in 1998. 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 »

Silly, but Entertains
6 March 2016 | by Claudio CarvalhoSee all my reviews

The teenager Zach (Dylan Minnette) moves from New York with his widow mother Gale (Amy Ryan) to Madison, Delaware, where she will be the vice- principal of the local high-school. Zach is bored and upset and while bringing his cardboard boxes with his belongings home, he meets his gorgeous next-door neighbor Hannah (Odeya Rush) that welcomes him. But soon her creepy father R.L. Stine (Jack Black) threatens him if he gets close to his daughter again. Zach befriends the clumsy Champ (Ryan Lee) at school and they schedule to go to a party together on Friday. However, Zach meets Hannah again but they are caught by Stine. Zach believes that Stine is an abusive father and he breaks in his house with Champ to seek out Hannah. When Zach opens a book in Stine's library, he accidentally unleashes a monster from the book. Soon he learns that the weird Stine is a famous writer of horror stories that keeps his imaginary friends that are monsters locked up in each book. But Zach released the evil Slappy that promises to bring havoc to Madison opening all the books on the same time.

"Goosebumps" is a silly film that entertains. The plot has funny moments but Champ is an unbearable character and Ryan Lee does not help with his face. "Aunt" Lorraine is also annoying, but Amy Ryan performs a nice character. The chemistry between Dylan Minnette and the lovely Odeya Rush, who seems to be a sister of Mila Kunis, are worthwhile watching. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Goosebumps: Monstros e Arrepios" ("Goosebumps: Monsters and Chills")
