"Goosebumps" is a curio in that it doesn't even attempt to capture the mood or flavor of the beloved Nineties book series, and in that regard could easily be considered a failure - but it does serve as a loving and self-aware homage to creator R. L. Stine. A game Jack Black and charming teen cast help make this more entertaining than you'd expect, even if in practice it feels like "Jumanji" with Halloween monsters.
OK mix of horror and kid flick which may whet the appetite for your future horror hounds. Nothing special here with some run of the mill effects and a few chuckles that pay some service to Stine's works but certainly not homage. One could do worse in finding a suitable Halloween movie for the tykes (though we'll stick with 'Nightmare before Xmas' here).
Far too few kiddie horror films nowadays. Granted the genre doesn't bank a lot, but most of these films are fun and this reminded me how much we need another Monster House (or at least more Jack Black).
Meh. A string of bald fanservice set pieces that don't share the spirit of the books. Has an affable sense of humor, though. And the insights into R.L. Stein's relationship with his own work showed promise. If his character had been the focus of the movie, it could have been a lot better, I think.
Dopo aver visto questo film mi sembra evidente che Jumanjii, Jurassic Park, Small Soldiers, Inkheart e molti altri si sono ispirati a questa serie di libri. A sua volta Piccoli Brividi ha preso spunto da storie come Blob e It. C'era di tutto, davvero di tutto. Non è il film più divertente e nemmeno fa paura, non ha colpi di scena, eccetto la rivelazione di Hannah e il gran finale. Quello è stato un tocco da maestro.
