GOOSEBUMPS 2: HAUNTED HAL­LOWEEN (PG)

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Gold Coast Eye - - MOVIES -

PUTS UP AN AV­ER­AGE FRIGHT, US, 87 MIN

The first Goosebumps movie was bet­ter than it had to be, largely be­cause of Jack Black’s ster­ling ef­forts. As for Goosebumps 2, Black is barely in it aside from a movie-sav­ing cameo in the fi­nal act. An all-new cast of char­ac­ters is led by teen junk col­lec­tors Sonny (Jeremy Ray Tay­lor) and Sam (Caleel Har­ris) and de­mented ven­tril­o­quist’s dummy Slappy. He’s hell­bent on hit­ting their town with a Hal­loween on steroids, which brings on a hail of scary (ish) spe­cial ef­fects. Av­er­age.
