Goosebumps Directed by Rob Letterman
Goosebumps is a drunk aunt twirling at a wedding reception: the most infectiously gleeful lack of self-awareness there is… When our hero Zach (Dylan Minnette) unwittingly unleashes Stine’s creations, their escapades instantly evoke the family films of Steven Spielberg and Joe Dante. In this sense, Goosebumps reveals itself to be a film that knows exactly how to deliver simple pleasures.

Javier Aguirresarobe’s sometimes blurry digital photography and the unremarkable small-town setting give the impression of a cut-rate production that has dedicated the bulk of its moderate budget to FX work. The creatures are serviceable, unexciting and clearly more expensive than their surroundings. Drector Rob Letterman has a background in computer animation: his skill-set presumably has more to do with wrangling these aspects of production than any affinity for either laughs or scares.
