Halloween comes to life in a comedy adventure based on R.L. Stine’s 400-million-selling series of books.
In 2015, Rob Letterman’s Goosebumps reminded us that PG-rated gateway horror could be a blast of October excitement for all ages. In 2018, The House With A Clock In Its Walls – unfortunately – proves to be the better unintentional Goosebumps sequel over Ari Sandel’s *actual* paperback continuation, Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween. Where Goosebumps is wittier, more action-packed, and boasts a livelier cast, Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween is a basic-bitch R.L. Stine incarnation that fan-services kiddie plotting into a duller, paint-by-numbers haze.
This time around, young trash-cleaner entrepreneurs Sonny Quinn (Jeremy Ray Taylor) and Sam Carter (Caleel Harris) accidentally unlock an unfinished R.L. Stine manuscript hidden behind a trick door.
