Movie Review: Goosebumps (PG)

This is the perfect post-exam escapade for kids - and just in time for Halloween.

Fans of R.L. Stine's children's horror novels are in for a treat as his monsters literally jump off the pages and start terrorising as they do in his bestselling books.

Jack Black is in his element as the eccentric writer who, together with daughter Hannah (Odeya Rush) and neighbour Zach (Dylan Minnette), try to save the town from his creations.

The main villain, Slappy the Dummy (voiced by Black), is quite a terror. But don't worry, he's not scary enough to give nightmares.

The action is fast, the creatures look amazing and the humour is tongue-in-cheek. Definitely family-friendly fun.

Rating: 3/5
