Goosebumps is forever. R.L. Stine's series might have peaked in the '90s, when the maniac was pumping out a book a week or so, but they still haunt us and come up in daily conversation.
So it's momentous news that the Hollywood film is finally ready for us to take a look. Watch the Goosebumps trailer above. You'll be too psyched to be terrified.
The meta narrative—locked copies of actual Goosebumps books, Jack Black playing R.L. Stine, Goosebumps characters and plots coming to life—looks perfect. "You just released every monster I've ever created," Black's Stine says. (The excellent movie poster also outlines that exact situation with vivid clarity.)
The new Jumanji? The new Citizen Kane? The new Pagemaster? We'll find out October 16, 2015, when Goosebumps' centuries-awaited release date arrives.
