The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Ontv -

Orig­i­nally subti­tled “Haunted Hal­loween” to co­in­cide with the sea­son of its the­atri­cal re­lease, this edi­tion of the R.L. Stine-in­spired fran­chise finds two young­sters (Jeremy Ray Tay­lor, Caleel Har­ris) un­wit­tingly un­leash­ing ven­tril­o­quist dummy Slappy (who’s given voice by Mick Wingert) ... and caus­ing a whole bunch of hor­ri­fy­ing trou­ble by do­ing so. Au­thor Stine him­self be­comes part of the ac­tion, as per­son­i­fied by Jack Black, who reprises the role from the pre­ced­ing “Goose­bumps” movie – though the ac­tual Stine also makes an ap­pear­ance here as the prin­ci­pal at the boys’ school. Wendi McLen­don-Covey, Madi­son Ise­man, “Satur­day Night Live” alum Chris Par­nell and Ken Jeong also are fea­tured. DVD ex­tras: five “mak­ing-of” doc­u­men­taries; deleted scenes; out­takes; sing-alongs. ››› (PG: AS) (Also on Blu-ray and On De­mand)
