Kids and parents will believe in monsters when Goosebumps comes to Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD on 30th May 2016 courtesy of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
Based on Scholastic's worldwide best-selling book series, with over 400 million copies in print, the motion picture adventure stars Jack Black (School of Rock) as Goosebumps author R.L. Stine, along with Dylan Minnette (Prisoners), Ryan Lee (Super 8) and Odeya Rush (The Giver).
When Zach (Minnette) unwittingly unleashes magical monsters on the town, he must team with his new friends Champ (Lee), Hannah (Rush) and Stine (Black) to send the ghouls back where they came from before it's too late.
The film is directed by Rob Letterman (Shark Tale, Monsters vs. Aliens) and produced by Deborah Forte (The Golden Compass) and Neil H. Moritz (22 Jump Street). The screenplay is by Darren Lemke (Turbo) based on a story by star screenwriting team Scott Alexander & Larry Karaszewski (Big Eyes).
The Blu-ray and DVD have 'spook-tacular' special features, including an alternate opening and ending, deleted scenes, a blooper reel, and a casting gallery. In addition, there are two all-new featurettes (Beginners Guide to Surviving a Goosebumps Creature and Strange Things are Happening... On-Set) with Dylan Minette and Ryan Lee. Exclusive to the Blu-ray sets are All About Slappy in which Slappy talks about his favourite subject... himself!; and Creaturefied!, where makeup FX artist Steve Prouty demonstrates how to become your favourite Goosebumps creature.
After moving to a small town, Zach Cooper (Minnette) finds a silver lining when he meets next-door neighbor Hannah (Rush), the daughter of best-selling Goosebumps series author R.L. Stine (Black). Stine is very mysterious and a prisoner of his own imagination - the monsters that his books made famous are real, and he protects his readers by keeping them locked up in their manuscripts. When the monsters are accidentally unleashed and begin to terrorize the town, it's up to Stine, Zach and Hannah to get them back in their books where they belong!
