It's a nostalgia bomb, destined to be a Halloween classic.

R.L. Stine's beloved "Goosebumps" series of books were pivotal books in the lives of millennials; I remember at least a couple kids in every one of my elementary school classes reading Stine's eclectic, twisty mysteries (I, myself, started on "Friday the 13th" and slasher films much younger than I probably should have, so "Goosebumps" always seemed like childish-fare to me). Nonetheless, a film adaptation - which surprisingly took this long to come about - caters to the genre of "kiddie horror" or "tween horror," a largely neglected, and frankly financially uncertain, genre of film that always seems to have its mind on creativity and adventure than anything else."Goosebumps" is very reminiscent of nineties TV movies one would find on Nickelodeon or the Disney Channel; it evokes the kind of cheery sentiment of network premieres that were the talk of the lunch table in elementary school. Its ability to rekindle the kind of charm of the series whilst creating something that's pleasantly manic and a bit creepy without being too cheeky or immature shows that this kind of filmmaking hasn't gone by the wayside just yet.The story revolves around Zack Cooper (Dylan Minnette), a teenager who moves from New York City to a sleepy town in Delaware with his mother following his father's untimely death. He quickly meets his neighbor, a bitter and elusive grouch (Jack Black) with a beautiful teenager daughter named Hannah (Odeya Rush). One day, while convinced that her father has abused her after hearing screaming and yelling from the home, Zack calls the police to the home, which leaves everyone but Zack to believe it was a giant misunderstanding.As a result, Zack sneaks in the house one day to see if Hannah is all right when her father isn't there. When Zack knocks a book off a shelf and it unleashes the abominable snowman, he realizes Hannah's father is R.L. Stine, the acclaimed author of the "Goosebumps" book series. Suddenly, all of Stine's monsters are released from his books, everyone from the invisible boy to Slappy the Dummy (both characters voiced by Black, as well), which results in mass chaos for the entire state of Delaware.Jack Black plays a very rare and interesting role here, one that allows him to be pretty morose and angry, two traits he doesn't really exercise quite often, if ever. The refreshing change for his overblown personality results in "Goosebumps" being another showcase for his versatility and incandescent energy levels that never seem to be crippled, regardless of whatever script or director he's working with.And with a backdrop of numerous different monsters, quirky teenagers, and some very fun sequences, particularly when the group tries to evade the werewolf in the supermarket, the results are usually very favorable. "Goosebumps" bears incredibly high energy levels and a nonstop sense of manic fun, which keeps it a fluid and fun project, often carefree and pleasantly not attempting to instill any kind of self-aware, meta humor to what should be a simple endeavor for families.

A rare, worthwhile horror film for the family

Instead of adapting any one or a select few of Stine's 100-plus "Goosebumps" tales, the filmmakers opt for a greatest-hits mishmash that prioritizes the spectacle of a parade of monsters over any attempt at atmosphere or mystery. The result is like gorging on trick-or- treat candy ? it may sound like a fun idea, but you'll pay for it later.Clean-cut teen protagonist Zach (Dylan Minnette) moves with his widowed mom (a grossly underused Amy Ryan) from New York to sleepy suburban Madison, Del. Hoping for a fresh start in the wake of his father's untimely death, Zach finds an immediate distraction in the enigmatic girl next door, Hannah (Odeya Rush), whose overprotective father (Jack Black) warns Zach in no uncertain terms to stay away.That's especially hard to do when ? in a "Rear Window" homage ? Zach spies a father-daughter argument and Hannah disappears. Soon enough, a meta twist reveals that Hannah's father is actually author R.L. Stine. He lives in seclusion to protect his original "Goosebumps" manuscripts, which have the power to manifest the monsters described within when opened.Zach and his geeky pal, Champ (Ryan Lee), discover that supernatural development firsthand when they accidentally unleash the "Abominable Snowman of Pasadena" while snooping around Stine's house. During the ensuing chaos, another creature comes to life: maniacal ventriloquist's dummy Slappy (voiced by Black), who proceeds to spread Stine's manuscripts all over town and conjures everything from a wolfman to man-eating plants, trigger-happy aliens with freeze rays and a vampire poodle.Director Rob Letterman (who previously collaborated with Black on "Gulliver's Travels") stages a few reasonably well-crafted monster- specific setpieces, including a snowman showdown in an ice rink and a gang of demonic garden gnomes invading a kitchen, but for the most part "Goosebumps" rapidly devolves into a frantic roller-coaster ride with random creatures popping up at every turn. A list provided in the film's production notes tallies 25 different spooks in all (and many of those, like the aliens and gnomes, appear in packs).The ADD overload combined with an understandably kid-friendly approach to horror (no one's ever in real danger, and the monsters are never too scary) results in a disposable product intended to appeal to everyone but likely to resonate with no one.Performances are all over the map. Black's hammy, Orson Welles- inspired turn fails to add much humanity to the role of a haunted author. Best known for supporting work in film and TV, Minnette adequately steps up to leading-man status, though his character is far too bland to invite real rooting interest. Talented comedians Timothy Simons and Ken Marino are wasted in throwaway roles, while Jillian Bell works overtime to steal her scenes as Zach's perpetually single, Bedazzler-crazy aunt, but that's petty theft at best.From a tech perspective, "Goosebumps" is up to the current standards of broad family entertainment ? though its mix of CGI and practical effects to bring the monsters to life falls far too heavily on the cartoony CG side of the equation. Aside from Slappy, a legit dummy puppeted by Avery Lee Jones, the key baddies are predominantly visual effects.There was a time when Tim Burton ? who surely would've put a more distinctive stamp on things ? flirted with the project, which likely explains why Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski ("Ed Wood," "Big Eyes") have story credit.
