Take this Which Goosebumps 2 Movie Character Are You quiz to find out. We update the quiz regularly and it’s the most accurate among the other quizzes.
It’s Halloween, and two middle school guys find themselves in the presence of hundreds of suddenly sentient Gummi Bears. They were just a few seconds before in a dish for trick-or-treaters. However, an R.L. Stine magic book has brought to life a variety of ghosts, ghouls, witches, and monsters, including a headless horseman, a ventriloquist’s dummy named Slappy, and a house-sized purple spider. And now, as they gnash their gummy teeth and blend together like a sugary-goo version of the second Terminator’s mercury-steel drops, those newly alive Gummis are swiftly shifting from cute to fierce.
The original “Goosebumps” film was a lot of fun, starring Jack Black as real-life author R.L. Stine, whose hundreds of spooky-fun books for tweens sold hundreds of millions of copies. This sequel, which features only a brief cameo by Black, is duller, with lower-wattage talent on and behind the camera. But the special effects are still excellent, and it’s a fun little Halloween scare-fest. Also, you must try to play this Which Goosebumps 2 Movie Character Are You quiz.
Which Goosebumps 2 Movie Character Are You?
“Fear,” Sarah (Madison Iseman) enters into her laptop as the film begins, sighing. She is a high school senior working on her Columbia University application, attempting to respond to an essay question about fear or obstacle she has overcome. At this point, it appears that her greatest concerns are not doing a better job on the essay and not being admitted to Columbia. Her boyfriend appears at her window (the film’s first fake-out boo-scare), but Sarah’s busy single mother (Wendi McLendon-Covey) quickly dismisses him. She tells Sarah that she needs Sarah to babysit her middle school brother Sonny (Jeremy Ray Taylor) and his best friend Sam (Caleel Harris), who is staying with them because she has to work extra shifts at the nursing home.
Sonny, who is attempting to complete his school report on the abandoned local Nicola Tesla generating plant, reluctantly agrees to Sam’s proposal to carry away garbage for free in the hope of uncovering something they can use or sell. Their first client takes them to a frightening abandoned house, where they discover a subterranean room containing a mysterious sealed book. Slappy the dummy appears when they open it. When Tommy, the neighborhood bully (Peyton Wich from “Stranger Things”) terrorizes the two boys, Tommy’s pants fall down before he can grab more than the book and Sonny’s sweater.
About the quiz
Sarah is also “assisted” by Slappy, who causes her unfaithful lover to tumble off a ladder. However, Slappy determines that his new “family” is not providing him with what he requires, so he uses the Tesla plant to bring to life dozens of Stine characters and Halloween decorations, just in time for trick-or-treaters to arrive. Sarah, Sonny, and Sam will need to retrieve the book from Tommy’s house in order to swallow all of the monsters and lock them all up again.
Ken Jeong, the next-door neighbor with a good costume collection, is a bright spot who will come in handy when Sarah, Sonny, and Sam need to disguise themselves. He also goes all out for Halloween, adorning his entire house with a giant purple balloon spider, which Slappy later brings to horrible life. However, McLendon-Covey and Chris Parnell as a monster-fied store manager are underutilized, and Sarah, the lads, and even the bully are written so thinly that they are lost among the colorful ghosts and ghouls.
This is not a film that focuses on character development or life lessons. It’s all about the jump scares and spectacular effects (that spider is quite awesome), kid-friendly hilarity (a skeleton dog pees on a fire hydrant), and a few self-aware references (Stine spots a “It”-style red balloon and sniffs that he thought it first). There’s the ever-popular win against a bully, as well as the reassuring opportunity to outgrow the grown-ups and save a parent. It’s not as smart or interesting as the first “Goosebumps,” and it pales in comparison to Halloween classics like “Monster House,” “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” and “ParaNorman.” But, by hitting the appropriate balance of amusing and terrifying, it becomes trick-or-treat-worthy, the cinematic equivalent of a fun-size candy bar.
