"Every story ever told can be broken down into three parts. The beginning. The middle. And the twist."

When I heard that a Goosebumps film was being released I was super, super excited!! I spent many a day watching the TV series when I was younger (even though a lot of it totally scared the bejeebers out of me).

It was sometime in January (I think) when I discovered that Netflix was showing all 4 seasons of the show plus a few other TV episodes/films, so I decided to refresh my memory by watching every episode before seeing the film. Cut to maybe a month or so later and I was movie ready.

I really, really enjoyed this film; it's one of the few films where I've actually laughed out loud. I'm glad I decided to watch the TV series before the film; although I think it would have been better if I had read the books (although that probably would've been a bit too expensive).
Luckily I was able to recognize a few of the characters for some of the episodes I had watched.

Rating: 9/10
