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.

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.

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.

This Halloween delight is served with wit and pizzazz on the side, a win-win for everybody.

The celluloid rendering of RL Stine's Goosebumps is a delightful feat.

The film is set up as a great entertainment for children who do not avoid the early fears. [Full Review in Spanish]

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.
February 5, 2016
Goosebumps speeds up helter-skelter in the second act and never loses its momentum, providing an eye-popping feast. Cool visuals aside, it's also full of intertextual content.
February 5, 2016
Mixing the action, comedy and horror from novelist R.L. Stein's books into a family-friendly package, this lively romp is entertaining enough to amuse the audience even when it veers off the rails.

While only providing sporadic entertainment for the over-15s, it'll keep the tween set amused to the bottom of their popcorn buckets.

The film is pleasantly enjoyable throughout, combining likeable characters with knowing gags and lively set pieces.
February 4, 2016
Goosebumps is a wicked delight, packed full of spooks and scares that should have adults jumping out of their seats almost as often as little ones.
