It’s without question that the work of author R.L. Stine is prolific and so many of my friends kids go to sleep with the nightlight on because of his works. A few years ago, we saw the first film to come from his creations and now a sequel is upon us. Check out the Official Trailer for “Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween” which heads our way closer to Halloween (but I bet you knew that already).
In the small town of Wardenclyffe on Halloween Night, two boys named Sonny and Sam find a manuscript in an abandoned house which was previously owned by R. L. Stine called “Haunted Halloween”. When they opened it, they unknowingly release Slappy who plans to cause a Halloween Apocalypse with the help of his monster allies. Now Sonny and Sam alongside Sonny’s sister Sarah must work to thwart Slappy’s plot before all is lost.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: This looks like a lot of fun, but I didn’t manage to see the first film. Sadly, I’ve never even read any of Stine’s books but that’s based on the age disparity in the medium. I greatly admire his skills at crafting a suspense filled read. I even told him that at Book Expo America a few years ago. What do you readers think of this trailer? Does it make you write it down on a film to see list? Let me know down in the comments.
