For most of us R.L. Stine’s ‘Goosebumps’ book series and tv series were our first introduction to horror. Soon a new ‘Goosbumps’ movie will be introducing a new generation of fans to the world of horror. This time the role of R.L. Stine will be played by funny man Jack Black. In the movie three kids , one who is the niece of Stine, team up when the writer’s imaginary demons are set free on the sleepy town of Greendale, Maryland.
The cast of this spooky throw back to the days when Stine was hailed as a master of junior horror stars ‘Neighbors’ actress Halston Sage, Dylan Minnette (Prisoners), Odeya Rush (The Giver), Ryan Lee (Super 8), Amy Ryan of ‘Birdman’, Ken Marino (We are the Millers), Jillian Bell (22 Jump Street) and many other talented actors and actresses. In one scene of the movie you may spot a ghoul who looks familiar. That would be actor Larry Mainland (wearing the yellow suit in the picture below), who is a regular walker on ‘The Walking Dead’.
Rob Letterman directed this anthology, which will be released on October 14 of this year, just in time for Halloween.
