A woman transformed into a giant after she is struck by a meteorite on her wedding day becomes part of a team of monsters sent in by the U.S. government to defeat an alien mastermind trying to take over Earth.
Alexander's day begins with gum stuck in his hair, followed by more calamities. However, he finds little sympathy from his family and begins to wonder if bad things only happen to him, his mom, dad, brother and sister - who all find themselves living through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.
A frustrated circus magician from Kansas is transported to a magical land called Oz, where he will have to fulfill a prophecy to become the king, and release the land from the Wicked Witches using his great (but fake) powers.
After moving to a new small town, teenage Zach Cooper (Dylan Minnette) meets the beautiful girl next door, Hannah (Odeya Rush). But every silver lining has a cloud, and Zach's comes when he learns that Hannah has a mysterious dad who is revealed to be R. L. Stine (Jack Black), the author of the bestselling Goosebumps series. It turns out that there is a reason why Stine is so strange - he is a prisoner of his own imagination - the monsters that his books made famous are real, and Stine protects his readers by keeping them locked up in their books. Zach unintentionally unleashes the monsters from their manuscripts and they begin to terrorize the town. It's up to Stine, Zach, Hannah, and Zach's friend Champ (Ryan Lee) to put all the monsters back in their books.

The Blu-Ray included an alternate opening. In this scene, two movers ([[Kumail Nanjiani]] and [[Luka Jones]]) from the moving company "Bannerman & Sons" look in the trunk of their moving truck to investigate a sound. When they find Slappy, one of them quotes "It's just a ventriloquist's dummy." Slappy then moves and quotes "Who are you calling dummy....Dummy." The two men scream as the trunk closes. See more »
Goosebumps The best part about meeting your favorite author is finally getting to tell them how to improve their books. Unfortunately, the teen in this family-comedy is only interested in the writer's daughter. When Zach (Dylan Minnette) and his mom (Amy Ryan) move in next-door to Mr. Shivers (Jack Black) and his daughter Hanna (Odeya Rush), Zach is instantly smitten with her. But when Zach and his friend (Ryan Lee) break into Hanna's house to free her from her father, they not only discover that Shivers is actually kid lit author R.L. Stine, but accidentally bring every monster he created for his horror series to life. A wholly original tale featuring elements from every Goosebumps book and TV episode, this awesome adaptation benefits greatly from Black's maniacal performance, as well as its spunky script and first-rate effects. However, if everything they wrote materialized authors would just write about licensed theme parks. Green Light
