Goosebumps – Inspired Silliness!

Goosebumps plays on the conceit that the monsters in R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps actually exist and are kept trapped in the pages of those books. Thus, when one is unlocked and opened, the monster escapes.

First Look: Scary Stuff From Goosebumps!

03

Remember the Goosebumps TV series? Aimed at kids but smart enough for adults? Yeah, that’s the one.

It’s getting a movie that uses the author (played by Jack Black) as the entryway into story. It seems that R.L. Stine  wrote about real monsters and keeps them from his readers by trapping them in his books.
