Goosebumps's user reviews

Los Angeles Times

The books have never gone away and now comes a movie version of "Goosebumps," a playful, horror-adventure romp that succeeds in translating Stine's tried-and-true formula.

Chaos without scales perfect for Halloween.

The Hollywood Reporter

Keeping the creepy/kooky mix entertainingly intact, Goosebumps translates R.L. Stine?s frighteningly successful young adult horror fiction series to the big screen with lively, teen Ghostbusters-type results.

More often than not, Mr. Letterman uses his movie as a toy chest of characters more than as a medium, the muggy Mr. Black included.

The fulcrum to the success of Goosebumps, it must be noted, is the perfect casting of Jack Black as Stine.

Read review Bill Zwecker

The movie version of Goosebumps replicates that balancing act. It?s a cheerful, nasty delight.

Black stars as author (and monster hunter) R.L. Stine in a silly, rollicking adventure that doesn?t take itself too seriously

It?s occasionally funny and sometimes suspenseful, but it isn?t particularly imaginative. Then again, neither are Stine?s popular novellas.
