Subversive, yet always fun for all Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween is spooky with added "Ooo!" and is destined to become a family Halloween classic.

The blend of family-friendly movie monsters is sure to inspire a love of horror in young audiences.

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.

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.
November 5, 2018
There are some neat, inventive scares in this cheeky, far-superior sequel.
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.

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.

Enlarged and animated gummy bears are the most memorable of the story's monsters, and they are apt symbols of a movie that offers basic cinematic confectionery.
October 22, 2018
It's likeable, lightweight fun.
October 22, 2018
Spooky fun with a side-order of Gremlins-esque nostalgic charm is let loose by this effective slab of entertainment for younger (but not too young) viewers. Job well done.
October 19, 2018
It's effectively a horror film for robust youngsters, and quite nicely done.
October 19, 2018
Fails to capture the same energetic spark of the predecessor, but it's an enjoyable family horror film fit for the season nonetheless.

Goosebumps 2 is like something you'd see on Nickelodeon around this time of year - glossy, spooky, well-acted, and just about entertaining enough for a lazy Sunday afternoon.
October 19, 2018
Whilst the adults may not have much to cling to (except nostalgia), the younger viewers should have enough here to keep them entertained and not too creeped out.
October 18, 2018
Goosebumps 2 is a lively and colourful ghost train ride, with some well-judged scares that would have been at home in its 1980s Amblin forerunners, such as The Goonies and Young Sherlock Holmes.
