After moving to a new small town, teenage Zach Cooper (Dylan Minnette) meets the beautiful girl next door, Hannah (Odeya Rush). 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. It turns out that there is a reason why Stine is so strange - he is a prisoner of his own imagination - the monsters that his books made famous are real, and Stine protects his readers by keeping them locked up in their books. Zach unintentionally unleashes the monsters from their manuscripts and they begin to terrorize the town. It's up to Stine, Zach, Hannah, and Zach's friend Champ (Ryan Lee) to put all the monsters back in their books.

Moves at a steady pace with enuff monsters n fun to keep u entertained.
I revisited this with my daughter n nephew last evening.
The best part about this film is that it moves at a very steady pace n doesn't get boring or preachy at all.
A teenage boy unintentionally unleashes the monsters from Stine's books.
It has all the monsters but the focus is more on the Werewolf n Snowman n both of em r pretty well done.
Since it's based on the children's book n one of the best part about the books is that they never contain any depravity, drugs or violence.
So dont expect monster mayhem in this film.
