'Goosebumps' Movie Does Monster Nostalgia Right
Provided By - Vidible on May 16, 2018
Sony's new Goosebumps movie is retro in more ways than one — a loose adaptation of R.L. Stine's '90s kiddie horror novels, yes, but also a refreshingly earnest family flick that feels like it was produced during the same period as its source material. Basically, it's Jumanji meets The Pagemaster, with a few postmodern flourishes — a movie designed to appeal to both 21st century kids and their nostalgic young parents. And mostly, it works.
