About “Goosebumps” Movie
Upset about moving from a big city to a small town, teenager Zach Cooper
(Dylan Minnette) finds a silver lining when he meets the beautiful girl,
Hannah (Odeya Rush), living right next door, and makes a quick friend in
Champ (Ryan Lee). But every silver lining has a cloud, and Zach’s comes
when he learns that Hannah’s mysterious dad is in fact R.L. Stine (Jack
Black), the author of the bestselling Goosebumps® series. As Zach
starts learning about the strange family next door, he soon discovers
that Stine holds a dangerous secret: the creatures that his stories made
famous are real, and Stine protects his readers by keeping them locked
up in their books. When Stine’s creations are unintentionally released
from their manuscripts, Zach’s life takes a turn for the weird. In a
crazy night of adventure, it’s up to Zach, Hannah, Champ, and Stine to
team up and get all of these figments of Stine’s imagination – including
Slappy the Dummy, the girl with the haunted mask, the gnomes and many
more – back in the books where they belong to save the town. Directed by
Rob Letterman. Produced by Deborah Forte and Neal H. Moritz. Screenplay
by Darren Lemke. Story by Scott Alexander & Larry Karaszewski. Based on
the Goosebumps books written by R.L. Stine. For additional information,
