Goosebumps’ marionette villain, Slappy, is back this Halloween (October 12, to be exact). In this kids’ comedy adventure, based on R.L. Stine’s bestselling series, Slappy plans to wreak more havoc on a town, as he’s escaped from the pages of the book. It follows the first Goosebumps movie, released in 2015, and expects a PG rating for mild violence, profanity, and substance use.
Wildly popular among, the Goosebumps series is one that often captures even those kids least interested in reading. Although considered a family movie and kid-friendly, expect this second movie in the series to ride the line between questionable content and kid-friendly when it comes to jokes and social references. Also, keep in mind this movie received a horror film categorization; so more sensitive kids might find it to be a bit too scary.
