Consensus: Goosebumps boasts just enough of its spooky source material's kid-friendly charm to make up for the script's scattershot humor and a punishingly frantic pace.

It gently mocks the traditions of the genre -- giant preying mantis rips roof off high school -- while never getting too frightening.

Goosebumps isn't detached or ironic, nor does it pretend to be something it's not. It's a bonus for fans who pored over the books and it celebrates the fun side of things going bump in the night.

Jack Black fires up a stampede of comic terrors ready made for Halloween. Sure it's exhausting. But Goosebumps, knowing its audience, lets it rip.

At a guess, I'd say that Goosebumps will satisfy its core audience - fans of R.L. Stine's popular children's books - and bore pretty much everyone else.

The film goes too wide and gets a little soft at the end, but not fatally so. It's the rare horror film - well, sort of horror - that you and your children can enjoy together.

A fun horror adventure for the fans, that will also appeal to newcomers of Stine and the "Goosebumps" novels.

Based on the hugely popular anthology horror literature, Goosebumps is a jubilantly redoubtable, sprightly adaptation that pays homage to Gremlins (the lawn… More

Dumb, fun, smart, and helming a surprising emotional heft, "Goosebumps" is more enjoyable than I would have ever thought. Lead by Dylan Minnette… More

Though goose pimply at times, this amalgamation of all of R.L. Stine's spooky children bedtime stories makes for some harried horror but half-decent humor… More

This is one of those movies that pleasantly surprised me. From the reviews, I thought I'd be at the very least entertained, but I laughed through most of… More
