Get ready for tricks and treats in Goosebumps: Haunted Halloween, which promises to deliver the ultimate Halloween horror movie. The trailer is here and pulls from the latest adaptation of Stephen King’s IT, while also grabbing themes and ideas from the Halloween-centered season of “Stranger Things”.
From the looks of the footage, the Goosebumps sequel is going to offer up everything Halloween related and could stand alongside favorites from Hocus Pocus to Monster Squad and maybe even Trick ‘r Treat. Let’s just
pray hope this is better than the first film, which was…not great?
The cast includes Wendi McLendon-Covey (“The Goldbergs”), Ken Jeong (Hangover), Chris Parnell (Anchorman), Madison Iseman (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle), Ben O’Brien (Manchester by the Sea), Caleel Harris (“Castle Rock”), Jeremy Ray Taylor (IT) and Peyton Wich (“Stranger Things”).
Haunted Halloween follows three friends who must stop Slappy the dummy from starting the Halloween apocalypse.
Ari Sandel directed the sequel, set to release on Oct. 12, 2018.
Here’s the official poster art to go along with four images.
