We were excited to get to see Goosebumps 2  this week*, as the temperatures dropped to a balmy 3 degrees outside, we were curled up on our couch, snuggled warm and toasty enjoying a movie night together.  We loved being transported back to the warmer (less frigid) weather of Halloween.  Halloween movies are my favorite, so it’s always fun to see new ones.  Goosebumps books from R.L. Stine were a staple growing up for my kids, so it was great to bring those type of stories to the screen.  Quite literally, actually………..

You’re in for a fun scare when Sony Pictures Home Entertainment unleashes GOOSEBUMPS 2 debuting on Digital and available on Blu-ray and DVD January 15. Slappy the devious ventriloquist dummy returns to run amuck, in this second installment of the family-friendly franchise based on R.L. Stine’s beloved book series. Standing in Slappy’s way is a terrifyingly talented cast including Wendi McLendon-Covey (The Goldbergs), Madison Iseman (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle), Jeremy Ray Taylor (It), Caleel Harris (Castle Rock), and Chris Parnell (Rick and Morty), with Ken Jeong (Crazy Rich Asians).

Here’s the overview of the movie:

Be careful what you wish for. With their after school junk business, best friends Sonny and Sam hope to find treasure in other people’s trash. But when cleaning out the old Stine house, they open a locked book that frees a supernatural nightmare- Slappy! Now, with the help of Sonny’s sister Sarah, they’re in a race against time to get the sinister dummy and all the creatures he’s brought to life back into the pages before he unleashes total pandemonium!

Fun, right?!  Totally a great spooky and entertaining movie for younger audiences.  We love any excuse for the family to come together and hang out and this proved to be a great one.  Be sure to check out all the extra features with the movie, too.

The GOOSEBUMPS 2 Blu-ray, DVD and Digital bonus features include a gag reel full of hilarious hijinks, three all-new deleted scenes and five featurettes. Between the chills, thrills and goosebumps, watch the cast get a case of the giggles in the “Gag Reel.” Dive deep in “Thrills & Chills- The Making of Goosebumps 2” with Madison Iseman, along with behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the cast and crew. “Meet the Monsters” gives fans a sneak peek of how the scary creatures were brought to life. In “Slappy’s Audition,” watch what happens when Slappy auditions for the role he was born to play. In “Science with Slappy,” enter the Slapatory where Madison, Jeremy and Caleel join Slappy for some electrifying experiments! And get ready to sing along with three hilarious “Slappy-oke” songs.  Who knew dummies could sing?
