Film Synopsis

Jack Black stars as acclaimed "Goosebumps" writer R.L. Stine in this feature-film adaptation of the popular young adult book series. A teenager named Zach (Dylan Minnette) reluctantly moves from New York City to the quiet town of Madison, Delaware, where he quickly realizes that his reclusive new neighbor is in fact the horror author of the "Goosebumps" series. Zach learns Stine's identity when he is drawn to the writer's daughter Hanna (Odeya Rush), but soon discovers the dangerous secret inside their home – the creatures from Stine's famous stories are real, and are kept locked away inside their original manuscripts. After an accident frees the monsters, Zach, Hannah and their nerdy pal Champ (Ryan Lee) must work together with Stine to save their town from destruction.
