There are some neat, inventive scares in this cheeky, far-superior sequel.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

The film motors along nicely with some mild scares carefully placed along the way, and the barest thread of a storyline makes for an effortless watch.

In this competent, but very inferior sequel, the Amblin touch is still there as in the first, reinforced with echoes of 'Stranger Things.' [Full Review in Spanish]

A film with a simple argument that prescribes to a great extent of digital images. [Full Review in Spanish]

For the Halloween season, this is a legitimately fun movie outing for kids, but not that much for adults.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

It's an SFX driven film and the character effects are imaginatively done to say the least. However, the film suffers when it comes to the plot and the story.

Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween will amuse young kids, but overall it isn't as lively or exciting as its predecessor, and less screentime for Jack Black is a bummer.

Enlarged and animated gummy bears are the most memorable of the story's monsters, and they are apt symbols of a movie that offers basic cinematic confectionery.

It's likeable, lightweight fun.

Spooky fun with a side-order of Gremlins-esque nostalgic charm is let loose by this effective slab of entertainment for younger (but not too young) viewers. Job well done.

It's effectively a horror film for robust youngsters, and quite nicely done.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 19, 2018
Fails to capture the same energetic spark of the predecessor, but it's an enjoyable family horror film fit for the season nonetheless.

Goosebumps 2 is like something you'd see on Nickelodeon around this time of year - glossy, spooky, well-acted, and just about entertaining enough for a lazy Sunday afternoon.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Whilst the adults may not have much to cling to (except nostalgia), the younger viewers should have enough here to keep them entertained and not too creeped out.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

Goosebumps 2 is a lively and colourful ghost train ride, with some well-judged scares that would have been at home in its 1980s Amblin forerunners, such as The Goonies and Young Sherlock Holmes.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Very clearly aimed at younger children, but does not take the hyperactive approach that so many kids' films do. This is instead a very classical, old-school movie, which paradoxically makes it quite refreshing.

While not the equal of its predecessor, Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween is a worthy follow-up
Full Review | Original Score: 16.5/20
October 17, 2018
It's a fun enough movie, though it never quite hits the levels of its predecessor.

Goosebumps 2 is far from being a Halloween classic, but it's the perfect tween brew. Adults may need a brew of a different kind once the movie is over.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
October 15, 2018
It's strictly garden-variety trick-or-treat frivolity, but it has a sense of humor, and the climactic mayhem is admirably large-scale.
