    Same for me, and same reason I loved both of the silly Goosebumps movies.

    The first Goosebumps movie was actually pretty entertaining. I thought the second was made-for-TV garbage that totally went away from what made the first one fun.

    I'm excited for this movie.

    The cover of this book gave me nightmares, I wish Hulu would stop showing me trailers for this lol. I'm a big wuss who has to read Wikipedia synopses of horror movies. I did recently watch Scream 4 though, proud of myself for that one.

    Yeah Scream 4 may actually be my favorite or the franchise.

    Reading a lot of good impressions on reddit/twitter. Sounds like fantastic “entry level” horror so to speak.

    Just got out of the theater, it's fun for what it is, which is definitely "entry level" horror like everyone is saying. Little slow at times, little cheesy, but definitely enjoyable.

    Yeah, the cast really sells it, especially Zoe Colletti. They got a good group of kids for this. It gets a little too goofy in the final act and kind of just ends with a thud and promise of a sequel. It’s fine and better than I expected. It’s probably one of the more graphic PG-13 movies I’ve seen. Surprised it didn’t get slapped with an R.

    It was definitely fun and I'll just echo what everyone else has already said. Didn't love it like I hoped I would, but I also think I was hoping for the same emotion evoked from the first time I read those stories when I was younger and that was probably unfair haha. Will certainly come back to this one seasonally during Halloween!

    I was shocked at how creepy it actually was for a PG-13. The red room stuff was actually pretty compelling.

    It was good. Seemed like a really long goosebumps episode.

    I really enjoyed this. I didn’t read the books growing up, so I didn't know what to expect. I kinda got Final Destination vibes haha.

    Did they or didn't they incorporate the story where the husband is dead and is wandering around wondering why he can't speak to anyone, and then eventually calls his home to speak to a housemaid or someone that tells him his wife can't come to the phone because she's grieving her deceased husband?
