Tim Burton was originally going to produce the film in 1998. However, the project fell through.
The only "monster" characters in the film with spoken lines are both voiced by Jack Black.
This film is based on a young adult horror anthology book series of the same name.
The soundtrack was released on CD and vinyl record on October 9th, 2015.
During the 1990s, George A. Romero was hired to adapt the book series into a single film. He even finished a draft.
Part of the movie was filmed in the small town of Madison, GA. This town was voted best small town in America and is a recurrent spot for filming in recent years.
In real life, R.L. Stine, book series writer, has a son named Matthew.
