'Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween' Trailer: Evil Dummies Return, But Not Jack Black

Goosebumps 2 Haunted Halloween will featured Slappy the terrifying ventriloquist doll yet again

Even though we're in the midst of summer, it's never too early to start thinking about Halloween - so what better way to start by watching the trailer for Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween. Slappy, the walking, talking dummy is back to wreck havoc on small town America in this sequel to the horror comedy hit based on the books of R.L. Stine. Taylor, of course, broke out as portly town historian Ben Hanscom in IT previous year.

The Goosebumps Twitter account teased the release of the trailer with a post apparently written by Slappy.

But maybe I'm just nitpicking. Others from the first movie might appear as well, but are not confirmed yet. That is actually my very specific preferred genre of film.

The original "Goosebumps" starred Jack Black, Dylan Minnette, and Odeya Rush.


Ari Sandel directs the sequel this time out, working from a script by Darren Lemke. Instead, we get the author's famous creations, including the Abominable Snowman of Pasadena and the Werewolf of Fever Swamp, coming to life (like in the original), and also evil gummy bears. I just find those gummy bears really amusing.

The first Goosebumps took a family-friendly spin on the series of children's horror novels that traumatized a whole generation of kids. Ken Jeong (Crazy Rich Asians) joins the series alongside Wendi Mclendon-Covey (Bridesmaids), Chris Parnell (Hot Rod) Madison Iseman, Ben O'Brien, Caleel Harris, and Jeremy Ray Taylor (IT).

Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween is set to arrive in theaters on October 12, 2018.
