‘Goosebumps’ Sequel Heading to ‘Horrorland’!

The follow-up to 2015’s hit will arrive on September 21st, 2018.

Personally speaking, I was a HUGE fan of Rob Letterman’s Goosebumps, which managed to adapt nearly all of R.L. Stine’s most iconic books for an all-out monster mash that seriously appealed to the monster kid that lives inside of me. Growing up, I absolutely loved the Goosebumps books, and I felt that Letterman and the team totally channeled that spirit and nailed that fun vibe.

Letterman is returning to direct the sequel, which we now know is titled Goosebumps: Horrorland. The first piece of early art (above) was plucked from the latest issue of License Global magazine, and it strongly suggests that the new film will be adapting the Horrorland spin-off line. Music to my ears, friends. Music to my ears.

The Horrorland books are set in a vast theme park which R.L. Stine describes as “the scariest place on Earth.”

Darren Lemke wrote the script. Deborah Forte and Neal H. Moritz return as producers.

It’s assumed that Jack Black will play Stine, but that hasn’t been confirmed.

    I also loved the Horrorland series. Can’t wait for this!!!

  • I hope they show the haunted mask in this new movie.

    • The Haunted Mask was in the first film, actually, albeit just as part of the large mob of monsters towards the end of the film.

      Only if they went scarier for it.

      RL managed to make a few episodes of the Haunting Hour really good(Catching Cold, Big Yellow and a few others) so I’d like to see them go more horror less laughs for a Haunted Mask movie.

    I don’t think they channeled the vibe at all. The books and tv show actually tried to scare kids, the movie played nearly everything for laughs.

    Really dug the new movie, color me excited about a sequel!

    The only horrorland book I know was the original “Goosebumps: One day in horrorland” which was excellent, with my oher favorite “It came from beneath the sink” Regarding the film, it was dumb, unscary and jack blackish all over, I don’t want him back at all

    i loved the first film and am excited for this sequel!

  • So excited they’re taking a trip to Horrorland! Is anyone else pumped for the Fear Street movie too?

  • Wahey! Might finally be able to flog my One Day at Horrorland board game from the 90’s on eBay!

    I really hope they decide to go with adapting the books for the big screen like I originally wanted, and eventually do PG-13 versions !!!!!
