The leaves are turning and the air is getting chilly….and thoughts of fall are in the air. Soon it will be time for all things that go bump in the night to be celebrated on that special day of the year….Halloween! And to get you and your little ghosts, goblins, and mutants in the mood, Goosebumps® released two new ghostly-fun DVD’s, Goosebumps®: Attack of the Mutant and Goosebumps®: Ghost Beach, today from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
If you haven’t heard of the Goosebumps® franchise you’ve clearly been living under a tombstone. R. L. Stine wrote this wildly popular children’s series of books and he’s sold over 300 million copies. My kids LOVED these stores back in the 90’s when they were in Elementary school and kids today love them just as much.
This DVD includes “Attack of the Mutant Parts 1 & 2.” The story follows Skipper Matthews and his awesome comic book collection which includes The Masked Mutant, the story of a power-mad super villain who is out to gain control of the universe. One day, while lost in a strange part of town, Skipper discovers a building that mysteriously resembles the Mutant’s secret headquarters… a building that magically disappears. Has Skipper read one too many comic books? Or does The Masked Mutant really exist? The DVD also features “Phantom of the Auditorium™,” a frightening story about a young actress who is thrilled after winning the lead in the school play… until the nightmares begin as there is talk of a real phantom who has haunted the auditorium for years.
This DVD includes “The Barking Ghost” and follows Cooper Holmes, a young man who is scared of just about everything. His father says he’s the only kid to scare himself on Halloween! But as he moves into a new house, this time Cooper is not just scared of his own shadow. In “Be Careful What You Wish For,” class klutz Samantha Byrd is the laughingstock of the girls’ basketball team. But now, Samantha has found someone who will grant her three wishes. Too bad she wasn’t more careful as now Sam’s wishes are turning her life into a living nightmare! Lastly, “Ghost Beach” focuses on Jerry, who is thrilled by the prospect of exploring the dark, eerie old cave he discovered down by the beach. When he hears the story of a 300-year-old ghost living inside, Jerry must decide if he will believe the legend or dismiss it as a silly made-up tale.
