Goosebumps, the scary book series for kids is back for a sequel in Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween as more ghouls and monsters are unleashed to give everyone the heebie-jeebies.
Well… that’s probably what the studio wants you to think, but I sum it up like this; The Goosebumps movies are like a horror movie, but the horror movie has most of the horror taken out… it’s basically a kids movie set during Halloween.
I don’t know a whole lot about the Goosebumps franchise since I’ve never read the books and the TV show never really interested me since it had no Power Rangers in it, but I always thought it was supposed to be scary.
The Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween trailer honestly looks about as frightening as Hotel Transylvania or a bit like a modern Nickelodeon TV movie. Also, no B-list actor looking for a paycheck in the trailer? That seems unusual.
Is it scary? I don’t know, check out in October of this year.
