“Goosebumps” movie has been number one in the Box Office since its release on Oct. 16, and it has made over $23 million.
This action/adventure movie has really kept people in their seats with its witty comedy and its unannounced jump scares that the whole family will enjoy.
“Goosebumps segwayed me into horror. I read the Goosebumps series as a kid, and I really loved it, and I hope it gets younger children to read the Goosebumps books,” Graham Curry said about the film.
“Goosebumps” stars Jack Black, R. L. Stine, Odeya Rush, Dylan Minnette, Ryan Lee, Amy Ryan, Jillian Bell and Ken Marino, and was directed by Rob Letterman, who also directed “Monsters vs. Aliens.”
In the movie, young Zach Copper (Minnette) and his mother (Ryan) move from New York to Madison, Del. Zach is upset about the move because he didn’t want to move to a small town, but Zach finds a bright side of moving there when he meets his beautiful neighbor Hannah (Rush) and her mysterious dad, whom he later finds out is R. L. Stine (Black), the popular writer of the book series, Goosebumps.
On accident, Zach and his new friend Champ (Lee) unleash the monsters from all of the Goosebumps tales, and now it is up to Zach, Champ, Hannah and Stine to return the monsters to their original stories.
“Goosebumps” movie is rated PG, so it is a family and child friendly movie. It runs 1 hour and 43 minutes.
“I think it is going to be a great movie for all ages,” senior Felicia Brown said.
Other movies for the season are “Monster House” (2006), “The Nightmare Before Christmas” (1993), and “The Haunting Hour: “Don’t Think About It” (2007). All are movies both are great for the Halloween spirit.
