Disclaimer: I was given a set of Goosebumps books and free tickets to the Pre-screening to facilitate this review. As always, all thoughts and opinions about how awesome the Goosebumps franchise is, are truly my own.
If you don't know by now, I'm a bit of a book nerd. My obsession with reading began somewhere during my socially awkward preteens years, and hasn't quite ended yet. So you can imagine how excited I was when I heard that my favorite teen series, Goosebumps, was going to be making it's way to the big screen. Yes, adulthood has done nothing to cure me of my insatiable desire to read--ALL. THE. BOOKS.
Today, I'm so excited to help Goosebumps kick off opening week with an awesome giveaway for my fellow book junkies and their kiddos. But before we do that, let's talk movies.
Last night Mr. A, Little J and I got to attend a pre-screening of Goosebumps, and I was pleasantly surprised! The movie kicks into gear right away. The humor is on point. There's just the right amount of young love. And all of R.L Stine's spookiest monsters made at least one appearance.
It was an exciting trip down memory lane. Something that I enjoyed being able to share with Little J. Which brings me to my next point, it's perfect for adults AND kids.
Here's a bit more about the movie:
"Upset about moving from the big city to a small town, young Zach Cooper (Dylan Minnette) finds a silver lining when he meets his beautiful neighbor Hannah (Odeya Rush). The teen is surprised to learn that Hannah's mysterious father is R.L. Stine (Jack Black), the famous author of the best-selling "Goosebumps" series. When Zach accidentally unleashes the monsters from the fantastic tales, it's up to Stine, his daughter and Cooper to return the beasts back to the books where they belong."
