Watch the trailer here:
R. L. Stine’s 90s’ book collection of horror, monsters, creepy creatures that spooked children and adults alike, found itself a sequel on the big screens but will remain a dull affair in comparisons of its memorable predecessor.
It really works in a film when the teenagers save the day but not for this Goosebump story which could’ve offered a lot more. Goosebumps franchise will go down as many greats whose original are a classic but the sequels ruins its good name.
We give it 2 buzzing bees.
