Directed by Rob Letterman, the film is an adaptation of R.L. Stine’s classic horror fiction book series, Goosebumps.
The film follows the story of teenager, Zach Cooper (Dylan Minnette), who is unhappy about having to move away from the city, but finds a silver lining when he meets a beautiful girl, Hannah (Odeya Rush), living right next door. But every silver lining has a cloud, and Zach’s comes when he learns that Hannah has a mysterious dad who happens to be R.L. Stine (Jack Black). When Zach unintentionally unleashes the monsters created by Stine and locked in their books, it’s suddenly up to Stine, Zach, and Hannah to get all of them back in the books where they belong.
I really like this trailer. It’s funny and serious at the same time. I especially like the part where Jack Black got stuck between gates.
Watch the trailer below, and get yourself in the mood for the film’s October 16 release.
