2018 *** 90 mins.
When I saw the first trailer for this sequel, it didn't look like much. All new characters, no real link evident to the first film, it looked as though it was going to be a cheap sequel to be written off. In actuality, it's better than the first film! It's still nothing special, unless you're already a Goosebumps fan. The new kids are entertaining, and the story is fun. A couple boys run their own junk clean-up service, and they stumble across an old, unpublished Goosebumps book, called Haunted Halloween. They wake up everyone's favorite dummy, Slappy, and all hell breaks loose! Parents and kids alike will have fun with this one.
Original theatrical aspect ratio: 2.35:1 (Digital)
