R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps series was beloved by many, including me, growing up. There were books, products, and even a TV Show based on the popular books. Now in October 2015, we’re getting the movie.
However, this isn’t what you remember from your childhood. October’s Goosebumps is a reimagining of the classic series. We get an opportunity to meet R.L. Stine with Jack Black starring as the story-teller. In this trailer, Stine is a recluse for a good reason. In his library holds all the manuscripts of everything he’s ever written. Inside these books, holds the terrifying monsters from the Goosebumps series. Somehow, they all get released and it leads to an epic and hilarious adventure to seal them back up.
While it has the feeling of a Nickelodeon movie and not of the classic TV show that had me fearing of the dark, as a child, I’m ok with it. As I said, I grew up with Goosebumps and looking back they were ridiculously cheesy at times. I like that this movie doesn’t seem to take itself too seriously. It’ll be a good way to re-introduce and introduce younger audiences of all the scary monster that bump in the night.
Goosebumps will release ahead of Halloween on October 16, 2015
