I saw Goosebumps
last night with my kids (7 and 9) and really loved it. It was very well done. The story was good, actigin good, S/X good. I think the Polygon
review sums it up better than I could
With a brisk 100 minute running time, Goosebumps doesn't waste time getting to that good stuff, even as it defies the odds and turns the heroes into characters I actually cared about.
In fact, "delightful to watch" is something that applies to Goosebumps as a whole. I went into the film expecting an exercise in nostalgia. What other reason is there to resurrect a series that was popular in the ‘90s and hasn't really made a peep since then? But as confirmed by my date at the film, who had never read a Goosebumps book in her life, the movie doesn't get by on nostalgia alone. There's plenty of heart, humor and spectacle here for anyone to enjoy.
Well worth seeing if you have kids. My 7 year old was scared a bit but not enough to want to leave and no one dies and there is no gore so I think he will be fine.
