Goosebumps (2015)

Looking past the unbelievable premise,* the movie was full of bad dialogue and sub-par acting. With that being said, the various creatures which came to life were fun to watch.

Overall, I wouldn't recommend the film to anyone, not even during Halloween. Then again I only read one or two Goosebumps books as a kid, so maybe a Goosebumps fan would obtain more joy from watching the movie than I did.

*Considering the potential danger of his books, the movie character R. L. Stine should have put them under better security. Even something as simple as keeping the key hidden or putting the books in a safe would have been a step up from what he had in place.

Lol. There's a single new kid?
"How do we get down?"
"Surround sound... I didn't know being an audiophile was a crime."

Stine (Jack Black)

Haha, bear traps.
The movie occasionally has some bad dialogue.
I mean... technically he caused the alarm by being so defensive in the first place.
"Stop trying to be Stephen King man." Haha, the response.

"Maybe they're friendly."
Ha. "It's Slappy's Revenge. Slappy's Revenge, that's a good title."
Haha. The current school play is "The Shining." (A Stephen King novel)
That's cute. "Oh oh, went too far."


"The beginning, the middle, and the twist."
Ha. That ending.
