Goosebumps! My my, it has been a long time now, hasn’t it? How fond our memories are. Welcome to Dead House, Monster Blood, Say Cheese and Die, Stay Out of the Basement, just to name a few old favourites. Remember how creepy the dad in Stay Out of the Basement was? Or there was the one with the books where they ate the librarian or something? Those were the days.
And now there’s a Goosebumps film, and while it’s about twenty years too late for those of us who us who loved R.L. Stine’s books way back when, judging from the brand spankin’ new trailer it could absolutely do the trick for young’uns the world over. A new Jumunji, perhaps. We take that back, Jumunji will always be the new Jumunji. In the jungle you must wait, until the dice read five or eight.
“After moving into a small town, a teenage boy named Zach Cooper meets Hannah, his new neighbor. Hannah’s father, R.L. Stine himself, writes the Goosebumps stories and keeps all the ghosts and monsters in the series locked up in his manuscripts. Zach and his friend unintentionally release the ghosts and monsters from the manuscripts. Now Zach, Hannah, and Stine team up in order to put the monsters back where they came from before they overrun the town and harm people.”
Goosebumps stars Jack Black, Dylan Minnette, Odeya Rush, Amy Ryan and Ryan Lee and is set for release in October, 2015.
