Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween

We attended the event as a guest of Sony

Last weekend, we were guests of Sony Pictures for the premiere of Goosebumps 2 Haunted Halloween Movie. The movie will debut in theaters today. The movie is rated PG.

Before the movie premiere Sony Pictures had a Halloween Party in theme with the movie. The party included carnival games and prizes, food and treats spread around the party zone. Additionally, they had an activity center for the kids that was fun for adults too. The activity zone had pumpkin carving or decoration. Kids had the option of decorating a pumpkin or carving it and planting a succulent in their pumpkin. After the party, we were guided to the movie theater for the premier of Goosebumps 2 movie.

The story begins as we see Sarah Quinn (Madison Iseman) is struggling with her college essay to Columbia. Her brother Sonny Quinn (Jeremy Ray Taylor) is a brilliant kid that is trying to recreate Tesla’s famous electric tower. Sonny’s friend Sam Carter (Caleel Harris) is a real go getter and has started a business (Junk Bros) with Sonny. And that is where the story takes off. Sam and Sonny come across a locked book and unlock it. As a result they release Slappy the Dummy.

Slappy wants a family and considers Sonny, Sarah and Kathy Quinn (Wendi McLendon-Covey) as his new family. When he is rejected, he brings the Halloween decorations to life and takes over the small town.

The movie is a fun Halloween movie with laughs, some scares and adventure. Please note that the movie maybe a little intense for the younger kids (6 and under). But overall the family will have a great time watching Goosebumps 2 during Halloween time.

Our favorite characters from the movie is a tie between Mr. Chu (Ken Jeong) who loves all holidays and makes a big splash for Halloween or Walter (Chris Parnell) who is the store manager of the haunted store. Both of the actors deliver a very funny performance.

My kids and I really enjoyed the movie and we hope you will too. Bring your family to see Goosebumps 2 Haunted Halloween in theaters today!
