I was never a Goosebumps fan. Never read the books, but I did watch a couple episodes of the TV show. So based on that knowledge, this movie wasn't anything spectacular or noteworthy, but I find it enjoyable. It fits very well with the festive season of Halloween.

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.

Lets organize a pleasant afternoon and watch a soft horror movie with the whole family. Why wouldn't we use the oeuvre of R.L. Stine? This writer wrote a whole series of books known as the famous Goosebumps. And to circumvent the obstacle of choosing a book, they just used all of them in the same film. What you get to see is a horde of horror figures, planning to destroy the human world. From small, annoying gnomes to a giant grasshopper. There are some less successful creations and there are also some highly amusing creations like Slappy, the Yeti and the werewolf with basketball …
