Goosebumps

(2015)

In Goosebumps, upset about moving from a big city to a small town, teenager Zach Cooper (Dylan Minnette) finds a silver lining when he meets the beautiful girl, Hannah (Odeya Rush), living right next door. But every silver lining has a cloud, and Zach's comes when he learns that Hannah has a mysterious dad who is revealed to be R. L. Stine (Jack Black), the author of the bestselling Goosebumps series. It turns out that there is a reason why Stine is so strange… he is a prisoner of his own imagination – the monsters that his books made famous are real, and Stine protects his readers by keeping them locked up in their books. When Zach unintentionally unleashes the monsters from their manuscripts and they begin to terrorize the town, it's suddenly up to Stine, Zach, and Hannah to get all of them back in the books where they belong.

Three highly-anticipated movies hit theaters this weekend, each looking to take down back-to-back box office winner The Martian. Sony's Goosebumps, Universal's Crimson Peak and DreamWorks' Bridge of Spies debuted on October 16, and, as expected, Goosebumps ended up on top. Box Office Mojo reports that the R.L. Stine adaptation took in an estimated $23.5 million, just barely beating out The Martian, which dropped to second place with $21.5 million in its third frame in theaters.

Goosebumps stars Jack Black as beloved author R.L. Stine, whose world is upended when a new neighbor moves into town.

18 Best Scary Movies for Kids

Halloween is around the corner and that means three things...Scares, candy and movies! Half the fun of this grand holiday isn't what happens on Halloween night. It's the preparation. In order to truly appreciate this holiday, one must get all of their horrific ducks in a row. Whether you delve deeply into the phantasmagorical. Or, merely enjoy Halloween-esque movies, October 31st has something for EVERYONE.

It would be very easy to write a list of this sort and include nothing but truly trembling offerings. However, what often gets lost is the idea that just because a scary film doesn't include Jason, Freddy, or Michael, doesn't mean that automatically disqualifies it from being a scary film. A movie can be creepy and be fun. It can be weird and entertaining. Quite simply, Halloween movies come in all shapes and sizes.

Will ‘Goosebumps’ Scare Up Big Box Office This Halloween Season?

Will ‘Goosebumps’ Scare Up Big Box Office This Halloween Season?

After 20th Century Fox's The Martian took home the box office crown yet again last weekend, many were wondering if that feat could be repeated for a third consecutive time. The sci-fi drama will face its toughest challenge yet, with three new releases hitting theaters on October 16, Sony's Goosebumps, Universal's Crimson Peak and DreamWorks' Bridge of Spies. The Martian only dropped 31.9% from its opening frame last weekend, and if it can pull off a similar decrease, it may end up on top for a third time in a row, but the projections from BoxOffice.com put Goosebumps as the winner with $24 million.

Goosebumps stars Jack Black as beloved author R.L. Stine, whose world is upended when a new neighbor moves into town. Upset about moving from a big city to a small town, teenager Zach Cooper (Dylan Minnette) finds a silver lining when he meets the beautiful girl, Hannah (Odeya Rush), living right next door.

It turns out that there is a reason why Stine is so strange... he is a prisoner of his own imagination! While Goosebumps is expected to come out on top, opening in 3,300 theaters, another strong showing from The Martian could give it a third straight win at the box office.
