The Goosebumps books by R.L. Stine played a big part of my childhood. There were very popular, and I absolutely loved them. Each book is a gem filled with scary, intriguing, and even funny. So, you can imagine my excitement the first time I saw the trailer for the upcoming film.
The brilliant and entertaining Jack Black plays R.L. Stine, author turned professor who spends his time away from the classroom secluded in his home with his young daughter. He is a defensive, secretive man.
What kind of secret does he harbor?
A secret that two boys investigate when they stopped by for a visit. A secret that brings his books to life. A secret that takes them on a fantastical mission to save the town (and the world) from all of his monsters.
Will they succeed? The only way to find out is to see the film, which premieres in theaters on Friday.
Goosebumps promises to be a magical, funny, and action-filled film that I look forward to seeing. Keep updated for the full review.
