If you grew up reading Goosebumps then you know the that the stories are alive. This teen horror ticks all the right boxes if you are looking for humor, horror and hysterical laughter from the young as well as the old. I was surprised for sure, and I love horror movies but the younger generation just took it in their stride. With all the gremlins, zombies and some vicious gnomes just to name a few the screening was pretty calm. I think my cine buddy was more disturbed by what he had experienced.
Zach Cooper (Dylan Minnette) and his mother move from New York to a town called Maddison , only next door to R.L. Stine (a.k.a. “Mister Shivers”) (Jack Black). Not the most friendliest neighbour. Zach befriends his daughter Hannah (Odeye Rush) but R.L.Stine is not having any of it and warns the new kid in the block. As we know, never so ‘No’ to a teenager because they will obviously do the opposite and that’s when the fun begins.
Superb visual effects that kept the momentum going, engaging the audience throughout.Dylan Minnette gives a brilliant performance supported by Ryan Lee. This duet worked well.
It was that good I saw it twice. You wont be disturbed promise!
