Is there such a thing as a family horror film? I don't know, but Goosebumps comes closest to that genre. It has its moments, but mostly it's kind of fun with more slapstick monster trouble than genuine terror. Still, talking dummies and murderous lawn gnomes, a creeping plant, ice-ray wielding aliens and a real teen wolf - it's all in good fun, but more for the younger crowd, I think.

Goosebumps is more entertaining than it should be with a fun but lighter mix of the darker stuff seen in the likes of Gremlins and even Jumanji (exact same plot by the way). Jack Black portrays R.L. Stine as both an egotistical windbag and overly protective father. The teen actors are one-dimensional but at least they're not obnoxious. The cgi is cartoon-like but appropriately so since this is a children's movie but there are a few bits that are surprisingly creepy like a kitchen fight with garden gnomes or a nasty ventriloquist's dummy named Slappy.

'Goosebumps' is a fun family comedy/horror hybrid. It plays to all ages easily. The zippy action/adventure plot stays focused on it's end destination and never gets sidetracked. Likable characters spout some decent quips amidst the constant barrage of monster fighting. I would've liked to have seen more of an attempt at scares. That said, there are entertaining encounters with the huge ensemble of creatures. Those familiar with the book series might get a little more nostalgia enjoyment through seeing all of them in one place. I definitely enjoyed this movie more than originally anticipated.
