Hawaii Mom Blog: Goosebumps Movie Review

Goosebumps Movie Review

My kids, especially my son, love scary movies and thanks to Netflix are familiar with all the episodes of the Goosebumps television series.  Being big fans of the franchise, they were very excited to see the premiere of the movie.  Excited and scared.  I did my best to reassure them that there was nothing to worry about and that it wasn’t scary.  Well, that went out the window when I jumped at the very first scary scene. 

Next thing I know, my 4-year-old is seated in my lap with his head practically up my nose and my 8-year-old daughter is clinging to my left arm like it’s her life line.  Scared as they were, it was a very fun and exciting scary.  The movie had lots of humor and made us laugh out loud.  The cast was great and the action had our eyes glued to the screen.  My son never once got antsy as he normally does at the movies. 
The movie is rated PG and will definitely be scary for little ones, but we absolutely loved the Goosebumps movie.  My son was still talking about it the next day.  Opens in theaters today!

About the Movie: 
In Goosebumps, teenager Zach Cooper (Dylan Minnette), upset about moving from a big city to a small town, finds a silver lining when he meets the beautiful girl, Hannah (Odeya Rush), living right next door, and makes a quick friend in Champ (Ryan Lee).  But every silver lining has a cloud, and Zach’s comes when he learns that Hannah’s mysterious dad is in fact R.L. Stine (Jack Black), the author of the bestselling Goosebumps series.  As Zach starts learning about the strange family next door, he soon discovers that Stine holds a dangerous secret: the creatures that his stories made famous are real, and Stine protects his readers by keeping them locked up in their books.  When Stine’s creations are unintentionally released from their manuscripts, Zach’s life takes a turn for the weird.  In a crazy night of adventure, it’s up to Zach, Hannah, Champ, and Stine to team up and get all of these figments of Stine’s imagination – including Slappy the Dummy, the girl with the haunted mask, the gnomes and many more – back in the books where they belong to save the town.
