It replicates the template and the atmosphere of the original, but it lacks invention and emotional investment.

"Goosebumps 2" isn't a movie, exactly - it's a piñata of effects posing as a movie. By the end, there's nothing to do but sweep up the pieces.

It's pointless and bland. Like a bargain-basement Jumanji. The Z-list cast struggle.

A movie to leave playing in the background of a child's birthday party.

It should please younger fans of the books who will have no problem with its rudimentary storyline all too repetitive of the original. But it does feel like a missed opportunity to elevate the valuable franchise to bigger and more imaginative heights.

While not the equal of its predecessor, Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween is a worthy follow-up.
