Prepare for the Haunted Halloween in New Goosebumps 2 Clips
Sony Pictures has released two new clips for their upcoming horror comedy sequel Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween, featuring the evil puppet Slappy resurrecting iconic monsters and Ken Jeong excitedly decorating his house like a Halloween theme park. Check out the new video in the player below!
Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween follows the Quinn family – high school senior Sarah (Madison Iseman), her middle school brother Sonny (Jeremy Ray Taylor), and their mother Kathy (Wendi McLendon-Covey) — into an entirely new set of spooky, exciting, and funny events. Sonny and schoolmate Sam (Caleel Harris) are best friends with a side job as the “Junk Brothers,” collecting discarded stuff other people don’t want. But it’s a gig that unfortunately leads them right into the path of Slappy (Avery Lee Jones), the mischievous ventriloquist dummy from an unpublished Goosebumps book.
At first, Slappy seems to want nothing more than to be part of the Quinn family, but when his hijinks go too far, Sarah, Sonny and Sam realize that this pernicious puppet must be stopped. Rejected in his obsessive need to be a member of the Quinn household, Slappy decides to build his own “family” by kidnapping Kathy and bringing all of his Halloween friends back to life – including new right-hand Ogre Walter (Chris Parnell).
As Halloween transforms their sleepy town into a full-on monster mash-up, boasting such hilariously freaky creatures as giant gummy bears and creepy garden gnomes, Sarah, the boys, and neighbor Mr. Chu (Ken Jeong) team up to save Kathy and the town from Slappy’s wicked plan.
Based on Scholastic’s worldwide best-selling book series, with over 400 million copies in print, the first Goosebumps saw the magical monsters from the pages of the “Goosebumps” books unleashed on an unsuspecting on the town. The first film made $156.7 million on a $58 million budget, and hit #1 on the sales charts when it was released on home video.
Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween will hit theaters on October 12.
