Goosebumps: Film Review: A Fun Adaptation of the Book

Verdict: A fantasy adventure that will entertain you throughout.
Most of us must have enjoyed reading the horror series, Goosebumps growing up. Now in 2015, we have a film of the same name based on the popular books. This latest film by Rob Letterman brings all of your favorite characters to life.
Goosebumps began with Zach (Dylan Minnette) and his mother, Gale (Amy Ryan) moving to Madison much against the former’s wishes. Bored of the small town, Zach befriends his neighbor, Hannah (Odeya Rush) who lives with her eccentric father, R. L. Stine (Jack Black). One day Zach accidently opens one of Stine’s manuscripts only to let the demons in the books come to life. How the three of them struggle to fight the monsters forms the rest of the story.
The film moves quick, giving you little time to notice its flaws. Also, almost every character from the books makes an appearance in the movie. You have Slappy the Dummy, The Invisible Boy, The Werewolf and all the other monsters for a healthy dose of scares.
Jack Black is brilliant in his portrayal of the famous author. He’s sarcastic, annoying, endearing and excels highlighting each aspect of his personality. Dylan Minnette gets decent screen time and impresses. A mention goes out to Ryan Lee who wins your heart as Zach’s friend, Champ. Amy Ryan and Odeya Rush deliver sincere performances as well. Letterman has made fantasy adventure films in the past and doesn’t disappoint with Goosebumps either. The makers also end the film on a clever note clearly hinting at a sequel.
Why You Should Watch This Movie:
If you are a fan of the Goosebumps series, this adaptation is a must-­watch. Also, give it a shot for Jack Black who is exceptional.
