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.
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.
November 27, 2018
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.
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 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 23, 2018
This lacklustre sequel to the 2015 hit Goosebumps hardly has enough jokes to qualify as a comedy, which leaves it stranded in the netherworld of near-horror, aimed at children supposedly not yet ready for the real thing.
October 22, 2018
It lacks the genuinely creepy edge of the original.
October 22, 2018
The film fulfills its purpose for those to whom it is directed, the child audience. [Full review in Spanish]
October 22, 2018
It's just a disappointing, half baked follow up that could have aimed higher.
October 19, 2018
It just feels like Sony really wanted to get a sequel out, rushing a lot of elements and making the end product feel disposable.
October 19, 2018
It's pointless and bland. Like a bargain-basement Jumanji. The Z-list cast struggle.
October 19, 2018
For all but absolute newcomers to that sort of thing, it leaves many tricks and treats to be desired.
October 17, 2018
Yielding fewer jolts and giggles than its predecessor, the results play more like functionally programmed babysitting software than any work of the imagination.
October 17, 2018
This sequel to the horror comedy fright-fest pales in comparison with its predecessor.
October 15, 2018
This is a kid-friendly monster mash, but it's truly no graveyard smash.
October 15, 2018
The premise is weak, and moviegoers are left with a lot of Halloween-themed mayhem with no substance - but that mayhem may be right up the younger kids' alley.
October 15, 2018
The biggest failure of this series, particularly in this entry, is that Columbia Pictures and Sony have lost the spirit of what made the Goosebumps novels popular and entertaining; the horror.
