The movie even feels cheaper than the first film. It feels more generic.
October 12, 2018
Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween actively avoids all of the charm and literary homage of the original film without adding anything new to the already established formula.

For all but absolute newcomers to that sort of thing, it leaves many tricks and treats to be desired.

Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween does have a fair amount of bite for a PG-rated horror film, but the plot mechanics never quite come together, and it is also fairly predictable.

The film fulfills its purpose for those to whom it is directed, the child audience. [Full review in Spanish]

October 11, 2018
Unwanted and unnecessary as few other sequels have been, Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween betrays any goodwill fostered by the surprisingly delightful 2015 film, simply crashing and burning.
October 14, 2018
It serves its purpose.

It just doesn't make for a particularly engrossing 90 minutes for any grown ups who are dragged along to share the fun.

The cinematic equivalent of an Ikea dresser put together in a rush. It's slightly askew, and there's a gap between drawers, but it'll still hold your T-shirts.

A movie to leave playing in the background of a child's birthday party.
October 15, 2018
The biggest failure of this series, particularly in this entry, is that Columbia Pictures and Sony have lost the spirit of what made the Goosebumps novels popular and entertaining; the horror.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10
October 12, 2018
It's less like watching a sequel and more like walking into a lacklustre haunted house that was inspired by the first film. It looks good, but not much of it is funny, scary, novel, interesting, or even all that entertaining.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/10
October 15, 2018
The premise is weak, and moviegoers are left with a lot of Halloween-themed mayhem with no substance - but that mayhem may be right up the younger kids' alley.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Take the candy you are most indifferent to and pretend it's what you just got in your trick-or-treat basket; that's what to expect here

October 15, 2018
The plot of Goosebumps 2 is a strictly join-the-dots affair with external threats and family friction all resolved at the drop of a hat.

October 15, 2018
This is a kid-friendly monster mash, but it's truly no graveyard smash.
October 11, 2018
Haunted Halloween is stunted by relying too much on monster intro-scares.
October 19, 2018
It just feels like Sony really wanted to get a sequel out, rushing a lot of elements and making the end product feel disposable.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
October 10, 2018
The script is more contrived than ever, the characters are largely underwritten, and the monsters look cheap and get very little to do.
October 11, 2018
Goosebumps 2 is in far too much of a hurry - and perhaps too eager to be widely accessible - to be actually scary or wholly effective.
Full Review | Original Score: 5.9/10
