    I loved the goosebump books and show when I was younger.

    But after going back and re-watching the goosebump series it wasn't as good as I once thought. And the books, even though I really enjoyed them, ended bad 90% of the time(if not higher that that).

    Either way I won't be expecting anything phenomenal. But it's still something I'd check out when it hits DVD.

    Since I never could get into the series when I was younger this shouldn't be too big a deal for me.

    i loved most of the series when I was younger. I have a feeling this will either be really good and creepy, or really bad and cheesy.

    Nice...I was a sucker for those books so I'd probably watch it.

    Goosebumps! I used to love these books when I was a tadpole. Had some great twists to them IIRC. We had them all in our primary school. Didn't know they'd done a TV series. That said, I can't imagine them, or any film, being as good as the books.

    Come to think of it, I can't remember a single one having a good ending. I remember some seemingly did, until the very last page, when they'd punch your fairytale ending in the face.

    Doubt I'll watch it, or even hear of it again but good luck to them! :)

    I suppose it all depends on which book they decide to base it on. It will be weired for a franchise because each film will presumably have a completely different cast.

    I was a fan of the books as well, but the television series was god awful. There's no way that I'll be seeing this movie, if they decide to make on. I dont see it having a lot of success either.

    I don't know... I think they should revisit the TV angle and try again. Turn it into a Twilight Zone or The Outer Limits sort of deal that makes it interesting to watch. Turning it into a movie when there are over 50+ books, it'll be hard to pick just one book for one movie. An hour long television show each week with the same direction as the Twilight Zone took.
