One of the best parts of being a kid, at least for us, was checking out Goosebumps books at the library. From Welcome to Camp Nightmare to One Day at Horrorland and even I Live in Your Basement, the stories were just spooky enough to scare you but not so much that they were impossible to read. So, maybe we had to sleep with a nightlight after reading some (see – most) of them, but it was worth it.
So in 2015 when the Goosebumps film came out, we were stoked! It brought together a lot of the aspects of books that played a big part in growing up for us. They worked your imagination and if you’ve got that, you can create anything. The premise of the film was incredible, and when we saw the Abominable Snowman of Pasadena come to life from the book, we were hooked. If you’ve managed to go this long without seeing it, we won’t spoil it for you, but you need to rent it so that you’re all caught up.
When we say you’ll want to be all caught up, we meant as soon as possible, because we just got some new information about Goosebumps: 2 that will entice most of our fan base.
Goosebumps 2 is officially titled Goosebumps: Horrorland and has a scheduled release of September 2018. It seems like a bit of time to wait, but the effort and creativity that will inevitably go into this film makes it all worth it.
The title suggests that the film may be focused around an amusement park like in the spin-off books and those were incredible. If you haven’t read them, you should check them out soon. You can read One Day at Horrorland and Return to Horrorland from the original series before beginning, there’s enough time.
