What you may need to know:
1. Adaption of R.L. Stine’s series of children’s horror novels.
2. If you were born in the late 1980s, then this will make you very nostalgic for the TV series.
3. If not, then it’ll just seem like a blatant rip-off of Night at the Museum (2006) and Jumanji (1995).
4. Oh good… Jack Black. </sarcasm>.
5. Director Rob Letterman also gave us Gulliver’s Travels (2010). Thanks Rob.
6. Does Dylan Minnette look familiar? He played Jack Shephard’s flash sideways son in Lost (2004-2010).
7. Broadsheet prognosis: Geese and desist.
Release Date: October 16.
