Story: The demons of author RL Stine's Goosebumps series get together to ​wreak havoc in the small town of Madison.

Movie Review: The celluloid rendering of RL Stine's Goosebumps is a delightful feat. Despite coming a decade too late, director Rob Letterman ensures that this comic horror film is a hoot all the way. For young,​ voracious readers, Stine's series was a way of life before JK Rowling's Harry Potter books took on the mantle to add some magic to our lives.

Here, Stine is an actual character of flesh-and-blood, played by Jack Black. He is ill-tempered and leads a detached life with his daughter Hannah. His new teenage neighbour Zack (Dylan Minnette) becomes curious about the mysteries of the his household after he befriends Hannah (Odeya Rush). The writer keeps the evil forces of his books bolted in hardbound personal copies of his works. The unsuspecting Zack mistakenly releases the vicious antagonist of Stine's book, Night Of The Living Dummy, a ventriloquist dummy named Slappy, who brings to life, the others of his brethren.

Letterman's Stine has a backstory - a bullied child who created monsters to scare off neighbourhood kids. Stine has a few stock qualities - ​he ​shoos away people, breaks his fan's phone​ and is ​hardly a pleasant man to be around. Thankfully, Jack gets inventive and laces the character with his trademark energy and wit.​ ​The only glitch in the film is that it is all too predictable, much like the books that followed a template, but that is ​a​ minor distraction in this fun affair. ​ Stine and his books get a new lease of life in this charming tribute film.​ To have Slappy, arguably the most menacing villain of the series, leading the pack of baddies was a clever move. As the dummy tromps off in a car ​emblazoned with the word ​HAUNTED in​ place of ​a​ number plate, releasing one monster after another, ​Goosebumps maintains its breakneck speed amidst the lunacy. ​​​The film, with the well-mounted CG villains - the werewolf, the abominable snowman, body squeezers - and its hair-raising playfulness, is a pleasure ride.
