As a family we really enjoyed the first Goosebumps film! It was full of scares with an interesting plot and amazing effects. I can’t wait for the DVD release of the second film. Goosebumps 2 is due out on the 18th of February, so not long now! We managed to miss the cinema release, so we are literally counting down the days to watch this. The DVD has lots of bonus material too so even if you saw it at the cinemas its well worth buying for the extras! Science with Slappy has me intrigued!!!
I have heard great things about this film! I thought it would be hard for a sequel to follow such a fantastic first film. But they have managed to come up with a new exciting plot involving the scheming ventriloquist dummy Slappy. He starts off quite well helping the pair who discover him out with chores and homework. But very quickly they realise he can take things too far and people can get hurt when he is feeling vengeful. Trying to get Slappy back in the book isn’t going to be easy. It’s enjoyable joining them as they face lots of hazards trying.
I don’t want to giveaway too much of the plot. Just grab your interest. The Halloween theme is great, especially when Slappy makes decorations come to life. The film is rated PG, which should be fine for children 8 plus according to the British Board of Film Classification. It’s good that they are making Halloween themed films for younger kids too. The film has lots of good messages behind it too. It takes both bravery and teamwork to sort out Slappy!
Jack Black is only in the film fleetingly, but I am glad to see he returned however brief! He has such screen presence.
I have included the Sony Pictures Home Entertainment official trailer below if you want to give it a watch or just save yourself for the DVD release the choice is yours!
