… Think It'll Be, and That's Kind of Enough.

"Pumpkin-headed scarecrows, giant spiders made of balloons, witches with glowing heads—these are the true stars of Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween, a frivolous piece of family entertainment that's more worried about creating cool monsters than it is a captivating story. Which, oddly, ends up working out better than expected.

While technically a sequel to the 2015 hit Goosebumps, Goosebumps 2 requires little knowledge of that film. Directed by Ari Sandel (The Duff), the sequel does bring back a few characters and reference the first film, but for the most part, it stands alone. Here, two friends named Sonny and Sam (played by It's Jeremy Ray Taylor and Castle Rock's Caleel Harris) discover a dusty old book. When they open it, they resurrect Slappy, the evil ventriloquist dummy of R.L. Stine's titular book series as well as the first film. Slappy then uses his magical powers to bring Halloween to life, so Sonny recruits his sister Sarah (Jumanji's Madison Iseman) to help in the battle against Slappy and his Halloween minions…."
