Plot / Synopsis
After moving into a small town, a teenage boy named Zach (Dylan Minnette) meets Hannah (Odeya Rush), his new neighbor. Hannah's father, R. L. Stine (Jack Black), writes the Goosebumps stories and keeps all the ghosts and monsters in the series locked up in his manuscripts like Slappy the Living Dummy, the Abominable Snowman, The Werewolf of Fever Swamp, the Giant Mantises, and the living lawn gnomes. Zach and his friend Champ (Ryan Lee) unintentionally open one of Stine's books, leading to the release of every ghost and monster from the manuscripts. Now Zach, Hannah and Stine team up in order to put the monsters and Ghosts back where they came from before they overrun the town and harm people.

Goosebumps Film Trailer Review
So what is there to say about the Goosebumps official movie trailer? For starters, Goosebumps looks particularly pretty with its CGI monsters and gives off a "Jumanji" and "The Monster Squad" kind of feel to it. Knowing such facts, Goosebumps may very well become the next children's film classic. The original R.L. Stine's Goosebumps books are (of themselves) have such ridiculous concepts which provide genuine scares, taught lessons, and entertained a lot of children back in the days (and still as of the present) who are now seeing their favorite characters be brought to life... again.
Yes, I was able to say again as not long ago Goosebumps was adapted to a television series which captured the hearts of the kids back in the late 90's. The Canadian/American horror anthology television series first featured the monsters that we can see in this 2015 comedy horror flick starring Jack Black. While those who grew up watching Goosebumps (including me) where genuinely skeptical at first when I first saw it, it eventually grew on me as this is simply not an every re-telling of every story of the many R.L. Stine Goosebumps book, but a fresh film. A fresh take for a newer audience that celebrates the history of both the print and television media that was Goosebumps. A tribute of a film that could gather new market or kids to check out the literary horror classic, Goosebumps. I am generally positive about this film and will check it once it hits the theaters.
