There were always going to be more scares and Jack Black is ready to bring them, along with a good dose of laughs, in Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween.
The new trailer is here and it’s filled with plenty of creepy moments…so watch out:
In the small town of Wardenclyffe on Halloween Night, two boys named Sonny (Jeremy Ray Taylor) and Sam (Caleel Harris) find a manuscript in an abandoned house who was previously owned by R. L. Stine called “Haunted Halloween.” When they opened it, they unknowingly release Slappy (Jack Black) who plans to cause a Halloween Apocalypse with the help of his monster allies. Now Sonny and Sam alongside Sonny’s sister Sarah (Madison Iseman) must work to thwart Slappy’s plot before all is lost.
Picking up after the events of the previous Goosebumps, Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween finds us returning to the scene of the original horror onslaught of the first film, and now an even more fiendish array of ghouls, goblins and other terrors are ready to wreck havoc on audiences.
The first film had a great mix of spooks and comedy, and the sequel looks to have continued that with a lot more Slappy! Black reprises his role as Slappy and has also been confirmed to be returning as the reclusive horror mastermind R. L. Stine himself…although just what role Stine will play in this film still remains to be seen.
The Goosebumps books were a staple of my own childhood and I’m excited to see what awaits us in this exciting new sequel which will arrive in cinemas on October 11….just in time for Halloween.
