On October 16th, R.L. Stine’s classic books come to life in Goosebumps, which will feature almost every iconic monster that Stine created back in the 90s. In the film, those beloved childhood monsters literally burst off the page and up onto the screen, and it promises to be a nostalgic delight.

It seems like we’ve been waiting FOREVER for this one, and today the Goosebumps movie trailer has finally arrived. Oodles of familiar monsters pop up in it, including the Abominable Snowman of Pasadena, Slappy the Dummy and even those pesky little lawn gnomes. And yes, it’s as awesome as it sounds.

Check out the Goosebumps movie trailer below, which is almost guaranteed to put a huge smile on your face!

In Goosebumps, upset about moving from a big city to a small town, teenager Zach Cooper (Dylan Minnette) finds a silver lining when he meets the beautiful girl, Hannah (Odeya Rush), living right next door. But every silver lining has a cloud, and Zach’s comes when he learns that Hannah has a mysterious dad who is revealed to be R. L. Stine (Jack Black), the author of the bestselling Goosebumps series.

It turns out that there is a reason why Stine is so strange… he is a prisoner of his own imagination – the monsters that his books made famous are real, and Stine protects his readers by keeping them locked up in their books. When Zach unintentionally unleashes the monsters from their manuscripts and they begin to terrorize the town, it’s suddenly up to Stine, Zach, and Hannah to get all of them back in the books where they belong.
