However, unfortunately, due to busy working on the live-action Detective Pikachu film, Rob Letterman cannot return as director in this second film. His position was replaced by Ari Sandel.
In addition to the director, the title of the Goosebumps 2 film also changed. After undergoing two changes, first HorrorLand and then Slappy’s Revenge, the sequel to the Goosebumps film was finally subtitled Haunted Halloween.
As the title suggests, Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween tells the story of two boys who, by accident, “release” the demon doll Slappy the Dummy and evil monsters from RL Stine’s book manuscript. These supernatural creatures then cause chaos in their small town. Right on Halloween night.
In the trailer and promo clip for Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween which was released some time ago, it appears that the Slappy doll is “awakening” various monsters that will become his subordinates. These include: Werewolf, Abominable Snowman, Lawn Gnomes, and other imitations. He wanted to create the Halloween Apocalypse. In the small town of Wardenclyffe.
Another interesting thing, Jack Black, who returns as RL Stine, also voices the doll Slappy in the movie Goosebumps 2: Haunted this Halloween. He worked hand in hand with the local boys, and Mr. Chu (Ken Jeong), to return the monsters to his book. Before Halloween night is over.
Btw, autumn, before Halloween, is indeed the moment for horror films in Hollywood. However, even so, director Ari Sandel tried to package Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween into an adventure film. By targeting a youth audience.
But, unfortunately, according to critics, the story of Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween that Ari Sandel presents is too safe. Irregular. Undercooked. And less bite. In addition, the characters are also static. Do not develop. Not to mention the monsters. Which doesn’t leave a strong impression.
In the end, Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween is more suitable for children to watch. Or by adults who want to enjoy horror films without being terrorized by fear after watching them. Because, in truth, this 90-minute film is not a horror film, but a comedy film.
