Movie Review: Goosebumps

Upset about moving from a big city to a small town, 
teenager Zach Cooper (Dylan Minnette) finds a silver lining when he meets the beautiful girl, Hannah (Odeya Rush), living right next door. But every silver lining has a cloud, and Zach's comes when he learns that Hannah has a mysterious dad who is revealed to be R. L. Stine (Jack Black), the author of the bestselling Goosebumps series. It turns out that there is a reason why Stine is so strange... he is a prisoner of his own imagination - the monsters that his books made famous are real, and Stine protects his readers by keeping them locked up in their books. When Zach unintentionally unleashes the monsters from their manuscripts and they begin to terrorize the town, it's suddenly up to Stine, Zach, Hannah, and Zach's friend Champ (Ryan Lee) to get all of them back in the books where they belong. 

Goosebumps brings back my childhood memories as a reader of this book. A decently made adventure film that perfectly fitted for kids and young at heart. The film somehow works for what it is trying to accomplish. The film offers fun experience, eye-popping visuals, genuine humor and nostalgia for the fans of the series. The whole movie is a fun, family-friendly ride with enough scares and humor to make it enjoyable for everyone.

My Verdict: 3.5/5
