Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween - First Trailer For The Horror Sequel

Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween - First Trailer For The Horror Sequel

The classic candy turns malevolent in the first trailer for Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween, the direct sequel to 2015's Goosebumps, in which Jack Black played a comical version of the famed horror author, dealing with the fact that all of his books have come to life in a quiet DE town.

Just kidding, but it looks like a ton of fun!

While Jack Back doesn't seem to be reprising the role of R.L. Stine in the new movie, there are a wave of new actors joining the franchise. The sequel seems to take on the same approach, this time with a new group of kids. Haunted Halloween stars Madison Iseman, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Caleel Harris, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Chris Parnell, and Ken Jeong. And sure, this is all based on a series of books you forgot to return to your middle school library decades ago, but the first film-which was directed by Rob Letterman and starred Dylan Minnette alongside Black-had a werewolf-tornado's worth of charm working for it, and was a surprisingly good if harmless little lite-horror romp. Ari Sandel directs the sequel from a script by screenwriter Darren Lemke (Turbo). The 2015 horror comedy was a modest hit, grossing $150.2 million worldwide on a reported $58 million budget.

The 12-time major victor prevailed despite picking up two code violations and accusing umpire Carlos Ramos of "double standards". The 2011, 2014 and 2015 champion was clearly unsettled by the dispute, quickly surrendering the set.

Jack Black has built a career out of playing the best song in the world (tribute), yes, but also starring in family-friendly movies. And we never see Stine in the trailer above, which is odd. Check it out in the player below along with the first poster and images in the gallery!

Directed by Ari Sandel (The DUFF), Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween will begin to scare audiences in theaters October 12.
