It’s no easy task to get all of author R. L. Stine’s monsters into one movie but Rob Letterman gives it his best shot in this rather silly horror show which doesn’t even try to hide the fact it’s based on a series of children’s ghost stories. Neither frightening nor particularly unsettling for anyone over the age of nine, Letterman’s cool retro style (think old school 80s shocker with Disney frosting) and above par CGI effects keep things palatable especially with Jack Black mugging bug-eyed for the camera and a healthy dose of self-deprecating slapstick—a kitchen interlude with homicidal garden gnomes calls to mind a similar scene from 1984’s "Gremlins". A surefire treat for any kid who’s read the books and a bit of updated nostalgia for the rest of us. Just try not to think too much.

Best movie ever. brings back memories from my childhood.

I was very pleasantly surprised by this movie. I went into it thinking that it would be a movie that I could laugh at, not with. But the story was solid, Jack Black was a delight, and it brought back fond childhood memories.

I find the goose bumps books slightly pointless to read. But this film was ok.

Hilarious and entertaining.
Instead of creating a blood-chilling horror movie, a film company combined the Goosebumps stories and their author R.L. Stine into a delightful-to-watch motion picture. Incredible acting and great plot. I'm glad the zombies weren't so… well, modern zombie-ish.

I hadn't watched the other ones because I always thought they would be scary but this one was actually pretty funny rather than scary

Awesome! :)

I did put a hold on it back in January but than i forgot to watch it cause i i had others movies to watch from the library and we always forgot to watch it so i started watching it today it is soo good but1 thing i don't like about this movie is how this girls dad starring Jack Black witch it doesn't look like him to me in the movie is that he doesn't want her to hangout wit her friends or any of her friends cause he wants to protect her some the bad thangs like her dad keeps old books in his house that causeed bad things to happen to the world and the biy is acsolly a new boy moving in a new house in a new nightberhood in a new town i think it's funny how Jack Black says you go home puy on your PJS and than you go nap nap and another part is pritty silly and funny how the dwarfs are attacking them and then the boy is hiting them with a shovel and breaking them. Later, the dummy was on the phone at the police station and the officers were about to shoot him and when they called him a dummy, he said "Who are you calling dummy?" Then, an army of creatures came through the front door and froze the officers. A girl also found a poodle who looked cute and she gave it some water, but then it showed its fangs and chased her. I remember when I was in Gr. 7 the very first time i watched Goosebumps was pritty scary for me and i got that vhs from someone and it was called stay out of the basment and it always scared me when i watched at home always but i would watch it anyway evan whenn it scared me but when i was in gr. 8 it still scared me but not as much anymore but when i was in gr.9 i still got scared but in gr. 7 yes i was scared .

"What is that word? Oh, Goosebumps!"

"Why couldn't you write books about rainbows and unicorns?"
"Because that doesn't sell 400 million copies."
"Whoa. Domestic?"
"No, worldwide. It's still very impressive. Shut up."

"You know how they say teenagers have no fear of death? That they're never gonna get hurt? Well, not me, okay? I was born with the gift of fear. I remember being four, being pushed on a swing, thinking, 'This is how it ends.'"
