The kids and I watched Goosebumps: Attack of the Mutant and Ghost Beach yesterday. The two DVDs are based on R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps children books. We’ve never seen a Goosebumps show before and only my oldest child has read a Goosebumps book, so we didn’t know what to expect. We were all pleasantly surprised by how suspenseful the episodes were. The kids were so engaged that they didn’t even argue with each other when they watching. That alone gave me goosebumps. The episodes are a bit scary/intense and very young children should probably watch with dad or mom. Both DVDs are available now for a list price of $14.98 each (currently $10.99 on Amazon). Both DVDs are about 66 minutes each and feature three episodes each. Thanks to Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment (Twitter), I’m also giving away both DVDs on my dad blog.
Goosebumps: Attack of the Mutant DVD
Attack of the Mutant (Parts 1 & 2)
In these two episodes, a boy named Skipper is obsessed with The Masked Mutant comics. One day, Skipper discovers the Masked Mutant’s secret headquarter in the real world. The next day, the building disappears and Skipper is obviously confused. The second part features Adam West, who is best known for the Batman TV series back in the 60’s.
Phantom of the Auditorium
A group of school kids are putting on a play, Phantom of the Opera. As the kids rehearse for the play, they begin to think the auditorium may be haunted by a real phantom. Hence the title of this episode, Phantom of the Auditorium.
Goosebumps: Ghost Beach DVD
Jerry and Terri are staying at the beach with relatives. That’s when a couple of boys tell them about the ghost living in an old cave. When Jerry and Terri explores the cave, they encounter the ghost. Only the ghost claims he’s not a ghost and that the two boys are the real ghosts. Jerry and Terri didn’t know who to believe. To be honest, I didn’t know who the ghost was either.
The Barking Ghost
In this episode, a boy named Cooper is tormented by two dogs. These two dogs are not regular dogs. They’re possessed and they have their reason for tormenting Cooper.
Be Careful What You Wish For
A girl named Samantha is granted three wishes. At first, Samantha doesn’t believe her wishes will come true. But when her wishes do start to come true, Samantha realizes she has to be careful with what she wishes for. I didn’t think this episode was scary at all. In fact, I thought it was humorous.
