Goosebumps feels like a tongue-in-cheek kids action adventure from the 80s -- such as Gremlins or The Goonies -- and deserves to sit beside them in the genre.

[Treats] its audience to a steady stream of enjoyable human-versus-monster setpieces and delightful dummy-based physical comedy.
April 5, 2016
Breezy, funny and unpretentious-to-the-bone, Goosebumps is not the most visually impressive or graphically imaginative film, but it's a terribly fun one.
April 2, 2016
[A] surprisingly witty big-screen adaptation. Even the old-fashioned aura of the stories ... finds an excellent balance between nostalgia and bracing self-reflection.
March 4, 2016
Spooky and frenetic, Goosebumps is charming family fare. It provides delicious scares for little people and a few goosebumps for the adults, while not getting too gross or grotesque.

The triumvirate of young actors are charming but, inevitably, it's Mr Black who steals the show with his patented, hilarious bellowing. Will today's creepypasta kids still enjoy such silly fireside supernaturalism? We do hope so.

[Goosebumps] focuses on keeping the dialogue snappy, the action plentiful, and the CGI convincing as it quickly moves through scenario after scenario.
February 17, 2016
Makes the Jumanji reboot superfluous.
February 13, 2016
A goofily entertaining horror romp full of tween-friendly chuckles and scares.
February 12, 2016
Black is in good form as the enigmatic Stine, but it is Minnette as Zach who impresses most.
February 12, 2016
For the most part, the story sticks to a predictable narrative.
February 12, 2016
Jack Black gives one of his more enjoyable performances playing the writer as a Frankenstein figure -- the creator of creatures that he can't control.
February 12, 2016
This Halloween delight is served with wit and pizzazz on the side, a win-win for everybody.
February 12, 2016
The celluloid rendering of RL Stine's Goosebumps is a delightful feat.
February 7, 2016
The film is set up as a great entertainment for children who do not avoid the early fears. [Full Review in Spanish]
February 7, 2016
The picture doesn't have the satirical edge of a Gremlins but it combines a sharp, funny script with some emotional substance.
February 7, 2016
Goosebumps has a clever mixture of monsters, mayhem, comedy and romance that will remind parents of childhood favourites such as The Goonies, Gremlins or Jumanji.
February 7, 2016
Goosebumps combines cynicism with sweetness. If you can get past the slow start, woefully blank hero Zach (Dylan Minnette), and hit-and-miss special effects, you'll be charmed.
February 7, 2016
It's a little scrappy, but there's more than enough carnivalesque mayhem to keep monster fans young and old diverted.
February 6, 2016
A pacy, quirky and thoroughly entertaining family adventure.
