Goosebumps 2 certainly has its heart in the right place, but that doesn't keep it from feeling like stale, year-old candy.
March 9, 2020
The second film in a franchise with so much existing material to pull from should simply never be this dull.
June 5, 2019
Subversive, yet always fun for all Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween is spooky with added "Ooo!" and is destined to become a family Halloween classic.
May 19, 2019
The blend of family-friendly movie monsters is sure to inspire a love of horror in young audiences.
May 6, 2019
Director Ari Sandel crafts a tale unsettling enough to push kids out of their comfort zones, but not scary enough to ruin their chances of a nightmare-free sleep.

You could certainly do a lot worse than this bouncy horror/comedy that's sure to please fans of [R.L.] Stine's long-running novel series.
March 16, 2019
An unnecessary sequel that has nothing to do with the fantastic spirit the first Goosebumps adaptation had. [Full review in Spanish].
March 5, 2019
The film loses its charm and gets closer to a bad direct-to-video sequel from the 90s. [Full Review in Spanish]
February 25, 2019
It just wasn't very creative or fun scary.
February 11, 2019
Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween follows a lot of the same story beats as the first film but still displays some clever writing and provides audiences with an entertaining, family-friendly 90-minute horror romp.

As the monsters proliferate, the film grows increasingly disinterested in character. Instead, like too many kid-oriented Halloween movies, it becomes infatuated with a sort of candy-colored, barely controlled chaos.
November 5, 2018
There are some neat, inventive scares in this cheeky, far-superior sequel.
October 30, 2018
There are flashes of inspiration sprinkled throughout Goosebumps: Haunted Halloween, but most of my enjoyment came as a result of my own passions and not anything the movie was doing especially well.
October 28, 2018
The film motors along nicely with some mild scares carefully placed along the way, and the barest thread of a storyline makes for an effortless watch.
October 27, 2018
Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween does have a fair amount of bite for a PG-rated horror film, but the plot mechanics never quite come together, and it is also fairly predictable.
October 27, 2018
In this competent, but very inferior sequel, the Amblin touch is still there as in the first, reinforced with echoes of 'Stranger Things.' [Full Review in Spanish]
October 26, 2018
A film with a simple argument that prescribes to a great extent of digital images. [Full Review in Spanish]
October 26, 2018
For the Halloween season, this is a legitimately fun movie outing for kids, but not that much for adults.
October 26, 2018
It's an SFX driven film and the character effects are imaginatively done to say the least. However, the film suffers when it comes to the plot and the story.
October 26, 2018
Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween will amuse young kids, but overall it isn't as lively or exciting as its predecessor, and less screentime for Jack Black is a bummer.
